    OK I know the title doesnt explain the information I'm after very well so heres the crux !

    I have just bought a new TV to display my Wii in all its glory ! I went for the Sony 40W2000 model if your intrested and bought the componant cable (official Ninty one)

    When I plugged it all in and selected the correct input source the screen tells me the input is at 570i ... now going into the Wii settings I can change my the output to a HDTV and it now displays at 480p.

    So my question is this ... I know that "p" (progressive) is better than "i" (Interlaced) but doesnt the number relate to the number of lines displayed ?

    If I'm right ... then surely 570 is better than 480 ? or am i way off the mark !

    I have read on these forums that the higest output the Wii can do is 480p so thats what its set at now !

    Thanks for any help

    570 is higher than 480, but i (interlaced) only turns on half of its full number of lines.
    So only 285 lines at one time are on for 570i where all 480 lines are on for 480p.

    The real equivalent of 480p is 720i, and you cannot really say which one is better between 480p and 720i.
    (480p is better for drama type of movies where 720i is better for active scenes).

    480p is DEFINITELY better than 570i.
