(Component cables are the ones with 3 video outs+2audio outs) I'm currently using normal composite cables to connect my wii to both an HDTV and a normal SDTV. I understand that the output will still be 480i and it's only the lightning if ever that's going to make a difference in the image. I've also heard of 3rd party HDMI adapters, but does this really improve quality at all? Please if you could help with any advice i'd appreciate it. PS: My SDTV has no component-in so that would make the component cables useless for that tv. But in the HDTV my friend has where i often put my wii, composite seems to fall really short in quality.
