@cralow: I strongly recommend you buy the official Nintendo component cables (picture linked in pwn statement). They cost a bit extra, but a lot of third party cables are crap and break (at least in the US, don't know about other places). Even if you send in your Wii to Nintendo, I still suggest you buy component. It doesn't always make a huge difference, but in some games it looks far better.
Yes you are right..... *hangs head in shame because JoostinOnline got one up on me*
