    Wii Media Centre Video Play Heavily Pixelated

    Hi All,

    new here. I've set up OrbCaster on a Windows 7 machine. I can access vid files, and they play superbly on my laptop (8yrs old), on the same Wifi network. Devices close by so performance across WiFi should be almost equal, other than hardware diferences, I would imagine. On the Wii, the image is heavily pixelated making it hard to view. Netflix/Youtube performs fine on the Wii, again making me think to rule out the network. I thought it might be the fact that they were 720 or 1020, so I downloaded a 480p file, as I researched that Wii can only handle up to 480p. No change. Any troubleshooting or setup changes recommended? T.V is an LG 42PG60UD.

    If I have placed this in the wrong area, please advise where I am best to put it. Thanks.

    EDIT:
    Could this be my issue? EDTV/HDTV (480P) option on my Wii is greyed out. Currently set to 60Hz (480i).

    The video quality is affected by the fact that you're using standard AV cables and have the Wii on 480i output. But there could also be more to it. What are the specs of the host device that is streaming the video to the Wii? If it doesn't have good specs you won't be able to get high quality video.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    You'd need Wii component cables and set it to 480P via System Menu.
