? Wii on Sony big screen

ANd it creates a better quality picture? I thought p (progressive) and i (interlaced) were just two different ways of getting the same picture. Like HD DVD's and Blue Ray DVD's, different technologies but they got to the same goal. P and I do the same, just how the picture is 'painted' on the screen.
I agree JErry, I think it is I, but i didn't realize it was better quality. I just thought it was a different type of cable since TV's are doing away with the yellow cables (Wii trying to stay relevant).

Basic yellow/red/white are composite cables. Green/blue/red/red/white are component cables. They will only go up to 480p, which equatlent to 720i. Composites/s-video only go up to 480i.


I have my Wii hooked up with component cables and it looks waaaay much better than composite. Too bad there's no HDMI
