    Or better, buy an upscaler, works the same as wii2hdmi but changes the resolution from 480p to 720p or 1080p depending how much you want to spend.

    If not the latter would probably suit best.

    official component cable gives great picture quality. i doubt wii2hdmi will give you better results as i guess its analog-to-digital converter isn't high tech and your tv will probably do the conversion much better than wii2hdmi.

    still if you don't want to clutter your tv's component ports, it might be a good choice.

    Wii2HDMI will do nothing to improve the picture that a component cable won't do. Go with official Nintendo component cables (third-party ones often fail or give poor results) if you can.
