    Guys, how can I make screen option EDTV/HDTV available? What sort of connection to a TV do I need? I'm asking here because my english in that department is lacking and I'm not sure what to search for. Thanks in advance.
    P.S. My TV does support HDMI

    Component Cable. The Wii doesn't support any digital video connections, so HDMI won't work.

    Thanks, there are original component cables (with Wii's plug), right?

    Original Nintendo ones are expensive (£15-25) but they are the best but seeing as my Wii is never gonna be true HD there is no point I thought
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nintendo-Official-...5093&sr=1-1

    The Cheapest I would never recommend (less £5) heard bad reviews

    I bought one the other day (£5-10) seem best value I am looking fro the link

    oh here is the one i got http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000P0X...ref=oss_product
    I am UK though so maybe you need to look something similar in your region
    I read reviews etc. and decided on this but please look around and search/review yourself

    I think I misused the word 'original', I simply meant a Wii-TV component cable without extra adapters... Well I'll most definetly look for one around, thanks.

    the wii ships with composite: red/white/yellow, where the yellow carries the video signal - what you are after is component: red/green/blue for video, with red/white for audio.
