    Hey everyone. Searched around and couldnt find an answer for this. I went and picked up a component cable for wii recently. It works nicley for the games and I am happy with the picture(it really does smooth things out!). The only problem I have is I can't get GeeXboX to work with it!! As soon as I launch it either from channel or HBC the screen goes all wavy and nuts and my TV switches from CVI to AVI and still displays the waviness..You can also see the colors of the orange/blue splash screen waving around.

    Is GeeXboX compatible with a component cable? if so how do i set it up?

    That is very strange. I use Geexbox myself with component cables. Maybe you have an old version of the program or some setting got screwed up? Have you tried deleting all Geexbox related folders and installing the newest version? (I think there's a folder related to Geexbox that lurks outside of the classic "apps" directory in the root of the card).

    Yea, I think it may be the folder on the root that messing it up or my tv just doesnt like me..I'll try a fresh reinstall with the latest version..

    480i with Component cables will not work.

    480p with Component cables will possibly work.

    MPlayer CE >>> Geexbox in terms of USB 2.0 speed as Geexbox only supports USB 1.1
