    Playing Wii on a 72" HDTV

    What is the best way to setup a wii on a 72 in widescreen hdtv.

    I heard the hd cable for it doesn't work well.

    is there any way of making it not look so blurry or blocky.

    would an upconverter help, or should I just go with the hd wii cable?

    I would say just go with the component cable. I don't think you can make it look any better. The best the wii can output is 480P. It should look fine at that resolution, of course you can't compare it to an xbox360 or ps3...

    thanks, wasn't sure of the best way to go about it.
    I just had it hooked up with the regular cable, and wondered if it would make much of a difference to hook it up at 480p.
    if I am to understand correctly, the difference is 480i is the same resolution, but, 480p doubles the frame rate making gameplay more smooth.
    Let me know if I am just spewing bullsh!t, but thats what I have heard from other people.

    Here's basically what you said, but with more details.


    Progressive scanning

    Progressive scan differs from interlaced scan in that the image is displayed on a screen by scanning each line (or row of pixels) in a sequential order rather than an alternate order, as is done with interlaced scan. In other words, in progressive scan, the image lines (or pixel rows) are scanned in numerical order (1,2,3) down the screen from top to bottom, instead of in an alternate order (lines or rows 1,3,5, etc... followed by lines or rows 2,4,6). By progressively scanning the image onto a screen every 60th of a second rather than "interlacing" alternate lines every 30th of a second, a smoother, more detailed, image can be produced on the screen that is perfectly suited for viewing fine details, such as text, and is also less susceptible to interlace flicker. The primary intent of progressive scan is to refresh the screen more often.
