    The wii has a limited pixel aspect ratio or clock, and the Wii U just upscales VWii unless its told not to. Which breaks the functionality of the games or Wii its self since they display in a panoramic image if its not synced with the tv.

    CTR is old cable (box tv.) Also used on the DS, DSi, and New Nintendo 3ds systems. That's all I can really say. Beyond that the TV is what really makes up the graphics and aspect ratio. The Wii/Wii U/Switch Hardware does matter. Just when its not optimized.

    Literally everything you just said in here is wrong.

    Do you mean "CRT" (Cathode Ray Tube)? Nintendo DS/DSi/3DS most definitely do NOT use a CRT. None of anything you have said is specific to CRTs, and has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not the Wii can output 1080p (it can't).

    By CRT I mean CTR because CTR is actually composite not video cable like CRT. (Maybe in NA.)

    What lol, Ds, Dslite, DSi, and 3ds do not use Composite, that's just silly.
    Composite is for tv's, and last time I checked, ds family don't simply hook up to the tv. They drive their own Lcds, because it's a handheld.

    Wii Cannot output 1080, End of discussion. The AVE(Audio Video Encoder) on the wii can only go up to 480i using COMPONENT(not Composite)
    There is wii hardware in a wii u, it renders it slightly better, but pretty much 1:1 the "upscaling" is done from the tv

    the opposite (and only because of an artificial limitation + the fact 99% of common peoples' TVs wouldn't support that)

    and the WiiU can actually upscale Vwii - though depending on who you ask it's not much better than leaving the console on 480 and leaving it to the display

    Ah yes the DS, DSi and 3DS all use CRT screens as evidenced by the fact that their battery life is only a few minutes, they weigh about 10lbs and are about a foot thick.

    Wait...

    Please link a picture or website that shows what a "CTR" is, because right now nothing of what you're saying makes sense.

    The old god's of Smash used to roam the lands preaching the word of Melee. Carrying CRTs up mountains and modifying their controllers for a slight edge in competition. Everyone feared the Fox but embraced it as well.

    Wat the hell are you even talking about? Sounds like you're either trolling or talking out your ass about something you don't know about.

    I'm not sure what else I can link to besides a website talking about SCART cables and VGA interface. Really CTR Cables are just those mono television cables you see in what looks like... Cable box tvs?

    What are CTR cables. I tried looking it up and can't find anything about it. Can you link information about it? Does CTR cables even exist?

    Its the one on the top. But its similar resmblence is like that. Only few have been made in the world shortly after HDMI or cable TV. (Whichever came first.)

    I think its called a Scarlet Cable. But the cable only uses a male to female plug and displays output consecutivey only. Without getting into any other change of topics. The plug was only offered and available near North America and Brazil.

    Its obsoleted though unless you program it to something like a game that utilizes contrast and consecutive images though. Its creepy as it sounds horrific.

    Some monitors have a refresh rate set in. Some don't.

    That's a coaxial cable, aka "RF". I have no idea where you came up with "CTR".

    Incidentally, coax *can* carry HD video using the ATSC and DVB standards. There's no reasonably priced consumer equipment to generate these signals, but they're available from broadcast and cable TV providers.

    Are you talking about loosing color information at the high end of the signal? That's probably because your contrast is set too high, and your loosing white and color detail. Clouds loose detail and become one big white blob. You can display test patterns that lets you monitor in real time how the contrast controls affects the high end of the signal, to find the maximum contrast you can set.
