    Hello everyone,

    I recently purchased a HDTV (200hz, FullHD, 32"). To be exact this one: http://www.lg.com/nl/tv-audio-video/televi...-tv-32LD750.jsp

    But now I put my Composite cable in my HD tv, I expected it to be at least without shielding screen noise kind of problems.
    Here are some pictures:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Tv is set on 480i 60hz, highest possible at the moment, I yet have to buy a Component cable or a HDMiKey device.

    The cable is official from Nintendo, so I don't think its a shielding problem.
    So my question is if this is normal for Compesite cabels on Wii, or that there is a actual problem.

    I will be buying a alternative to Composite anytime soon.. but for now, how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Adr990

    That's normal for 480i and the normal cables. I also have a 32'' TV and it was not different, now I have component cables and it's gone.

    Cool, it's even cheaper than DX. No need to buy a whole lot at once?

    But.. does it work with the USB Loader?
    I heard from many others that 3rd party component cables give noise at screen problems when using a HDD on the Wii.

    Actually it is true. I have talked to many people who had that problem when using 3rd-party cables. Unless there is something wrong with the console itself, getting official Nintendo cables always fixes it.

    I have 3rd party component cables and I don't have any noise problems playing games from a hard drive.

    Maybe you were just talking to people who had shitty cables who only ever played games from a hard drive and didn't notice the noise on the menu.

    It's not true with all cables. Some 3rd-party cables work perfectly.

    That's my point. Most 3rd-party cables are crap. Some (like yours I guess) work fine. Would you mind giving me a link so I can bookmark it? Nintendo's cables work fine, but they are more expensive so an alternative would be nice.

    yea i can see crappy 3rd party cables having issues. But its safe to say that the cable from monoprice are redonkulously high quality considering their low cost. I bought a hdmi cable from them that was like $20 and it was similar to one of those ones you'd find for $100+ elsewhere.

    Edit: BTW if you follow my link they have user reviews of the product. (like newegg and other sites have) 97% user rated from 400+ ratings

    HDMI cables are digital, Einstein. The cheap shitty ones have the same picture quality as the overpriced ones.

    I never mentioned anything about digital, i was only stating that the website has quality cables for the price for "cheap" cables you could buy at walmart or radio shack.

    Thanks for the link, I bookmarked it. It will be nice suggesting this in the future. I don't like telling people they need to spend $30 on component cables or go back to composite when they already spent money on crappy ones.
