    In all of my games the edges are ...(U can see from picture)
    Can it be that i use a third-party component cable?
    or is it just like this Wii is? This is on a 46" Full HD tv.
    This is an example of an adge from Bowling in wii sports..

    you can try putting the old cable back in and seeing if it still does it. but by the looks of it it's the wii itself that's doing that when it's a bad graphics board. i had that problem a long time ago had to send it to N to get it repaired.

    What exactly is the problem? Thr jagged edges are due to you photographing the screen from a distance close enough for HDTV to be noticable (seriously, you even have sub-pixels visible at that distance) and the Wii offering no actual HD resolution. The bright outline is probably stylistic in nature.

    Are you talking about the jaggy edges? If so, that is because the Wii has no hardware anti-aliasing, so the upscaling done to convert the Wii's SD/ED content to HDTV will amplify that effect.
