5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Netflix streaming, April 12, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I agree with other reviews that the video for gaming is not improved in "HD" using a component video cable with your Wii console. I looked at the bowling game before and after switching, and it looked the same.
I got the disc from Netflix for watching movies on the Wii. I compared by starting a movie with the original video cable. The video was fuzzy and just blah on my HD TV. Paused the movie and switched cables. Restarted the movie and it looked the same. Then I realized that I have to go to the Wii set up menu to change from 480i to 480p. After that the picture was much better. Netflix "Instant" streaming movies now look as good as playing the DVD. The image is sized to fill my wide screen HD TV.

The cable itself has full sized plugs for video and audio. On my TV the jack spacing leaves no gap between plugs, making plugging it in tight. Make sure every plug is fully inserted if you have picture or sound issues.

Thanks to your comment, I feel a little dumb. XD I was browsing Amazon for a Wii HDMI cable because the picture was stretched out horizontally, and I /do/ actually have these cables, and I was thinking the HDMI adapter would fix the problem. After reading your comment on these cables about having to change from 480i to 480p, I literally facepalmed. I went into my living room and changed my resolution from 4:3 to 16:9 and from 480i to 480p and now the picture looks AMAZING! I used to play on a little 19" EDTV and it never dawned on me to go into the setup and change the resolution. Thanks for your help, although I'm sure it was unintentional.
