    Post Wii 480p HD Capable?

    I have an NTSC Wii and I was wondering if I should be running the video at 480p HD.. When I hit info on my remote it says i'm running ALL my games at 480i SD... Maybe I don't have the cable for it ? Wikipedia tells me that the NTSC/Pal = 480p, NTSC = 480i so I don't know it's conflicting information..

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks everyone.

    Edit: I'm using Component cables.
