    i just recently got a hd tv and i connected my wii with the normal red, yellow and white cables. but when i go to change the wii settings to hdtv 480p it wont let me, the option is greyed out.

    how do i get my wii to go hd on my hdtv?
    do i need some other connection wires or something?

    Thanks

    Component Cables
    I got These ones, they're cheap and work fine

    I have both types there is ,......
    The Nintendo one for a million, and a cheap one, the cheap one does the trick as googd as the more expensive.
    (in case you wonder why I got two, the nin-one I bought, the other came bundled with the one I got for My 360)

    Sounds like dodgy cables to me. Mine work fine on my Samsung.
