    Best quality video?

    Hello. I am wondering which will yield the better results, a Wii component cable or one of those Wii HDMI adapters?

    I tried the HDMI adapter, and I didn't like it. First, it only output to 720p, which my TV at the time didn't support (only 480i, 480p, and 1080i).

    The other thing I didn't like about it was that it got HOT --- and FAST!

    I've had no problems with the component cables. If my TV did support 720p, I would have guessed that the there would be no "better result" visually. Since the most the Wii can output is 480p, upscaled or not, it's still a 480p image and shouldn't look better either way.

    If you need a good pair of cheap third-party cables, you can pick one up for less then $6 usually from amazon: http://url.llaffer.com/component

    [EDIT] Looks like the price did go up a little, it's slightly over $6. Still, cheaper than if you bought first-party cables from GameStop or Wal-Mart. I've had mine for almost 3 years and have had no problems with it.

    So no difference in picture quality then? If that's the case then I will go with the HDMI adapter because that's easier for me to connect to my AV receiver.
    I'll hang on though in case someone else wants to chime in.

    Cheers,
    Chris.
