Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Any comparison pics of 480i and 480p.

Take these pictures as just a sense of how much better the colors look with component cables. The vertical bars are just an artifact of my crappy camera.

Needless to say, it looks much better in motion, especially with 480p, but you can at least see the difference in terms of colors. I didn't take a video because it's a CRT (as you probably know filming CRTs causes a scrolling bar moving up and down the screen). It's a 480p capable 32'' Philips CRT.

Wow there is so much of a difference in color. Thank You now all I have to do is choose between vga and component. Vga would allow me to connect to my computer monitor if I wanted too and my tv while component only allows me to connect to my tv. I'm probaly going to get vga.

Yeah, I was actually amazed at the difference in terms of colors, and started thinking if changing the settings would make it better with the composite cables. I tried changing them, but it didn't make them any better.

just make sure you switch the wii settings to display in 480p and not i



 

Now I wish I had an HDTV hehe. I got the component cable because I play the Wii more often at my friend's house than mine...but I still haven't played Metroid or Zelda with progressive scan.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

Metroid looks absolutely gorgeous with component cables, the pictures I put above really don't make justice to it. I went with this TV set specifically because it displays 480p natively, which is great for watching DVDs and playing Wii with no upscaling trickery whatsoever.

 Well if you don't care about big monitors get the vga cables and play on your pc monitor. That is one of the reasons why i'm getting the vga.Edtvs/progressive scan tvs are cheap. Best buy had a 26inch one for 250dollars. 



Quick question - the cable that comes with the Wii are what? (The red, white, and yellow ones) and which one is better (plz describe the color) cause I'm thinking of buying that cable to upgrade my wii



I'll try to take some pics for Brawl and SMG and post them later (or tomorrow)




@wiiforever

A/V (aka. composite) are the standard RCA cables you find with just about every TV-based device. They're the yellow, white, and red cables you refer to. The yellow is video, red and white are right and left channel audio.  Composite video is a single stream, meaning all light and color data is distributed along the same feed; this leads to blurrier and more washed-out visuals.

S-Video is a wider plug, and looks a bit like a second-generation keyboard plug (ie. small and round, but still a bit bigger than an RCA plug).  S-Video separates the light and color feeds, resulting in sharper images and clearer colors.

Component is a 3-cable video feed: Y, Cb, Cr (or black/white, blue chroma, red chroma). They're all shaped like standard RCA cable plugs, but are colored green, blue, and bright red respectively.  Component splits color into two channels and sends the image itself through its own channel as well, resulting in high picture clarity and the clearest color you can reasonably expect to find for a TV.

Trust me, it will look like crap. When I played Endless Ocean (I think my friend needed to decrease the sharpness on his Samsung HDTV), the character models were pixelated. It looked horrible, like a PS2 in HD. Tried Galaxy and it was the same thing.

When I use the component cables without switching to 480p, the picture is more clear. I can't do that on my HDTV in my basement; it doesn't run progressive scan. But the component cables make a really good picture in just 480i, but crappy in 480p.
