    I just received my new component cable. But picture trought it is fuzzy. Like pale dots get in small groups and blink all over the screen. Overall picture is great, иге that nasty dots... Is there something I can or all I can is try to get my money back or get another one? I already blow the dust is much as I can.

    That doesn't sound like a component cable issue more like artifacts.

    Composite cable was okay. Anyway, do you know any solutions?

    Does that mean my Wii now just for composite use only? Kinda sad [​IMG]
    This problem affects only component connection, right? Composite still looks okay, and if its true, than I should get a new working cable

    Have you tried it on another TV?

    Yes, I have. Does not do much difference. Now picture became much worse BTW. Now colors degraded too. Composite still okay.

    Hmm... do you have while plugged a composite cable a good signal at tv? If so, then your wii isn´t fried. You should try your component cable on another TV/LCD and see what happens. If problem persists then it´s a faulty cable.

    I have a cheap component cable like $7 or so, and I never had any problems with it. (Wii recognizes it automatically and sets "Wii Resolution" to 480p.

    What we call something "normal" is having a "blurred" image in System Menu with a Component cable on lower quality LCD/VGA, but not "nasty dots".

    Now everything is clear to me. Composite cable works good on both TVs, and component is bad. And that cable WAS pretty cheap. 4 bux from dealextreme. I thing I will order another one. Thank for everyone for their time!

    Generally, a good component cable runs from $7 to $15. I bought mine on Walmart.com
