Heya

Well, I'm trying to hook my Wii up to my pc through my Tv Card,

I've managed it, but only with composite cables, it looks awful, everything is very pixelated and blurry,

but with my Pc came two sets of cables to connect a console to the pc,

one set is R Y W, composite colours,
whilst the other is the exact same cable but with R G B, which are the colours of component cables,

so I was wondering, if i bought a component cable for the Wii and used the R G B connecters supplied with my Pc,
will I get a better resolution on the Wii,

Logically I would think so, but computers don't tend to agree with my logic,

so would it work or would I still be stuck with a bad resolution?

Thanks :)

What TV do you have (model, diagonal)?

Component cable will provide you 480p res on HDTV - may seem pixelated aswell especially from short distance from screen.

I'm trying to hook it up to my Pc monitor through my Tv Card,

My screen res 1680 x 1050

I just don't want to spend 20 on cables and then not have it do anything

Oh, slap... mind slip :p

Well if you want to get WII picture on 1680x1050 screen, it'll be pixelated anyway. The resolutions must be near equal (not more than 2 : 1) to get fair quality image.

I wouldn't play it in full screen,

I'd be using VirtualDub anyway,
which lets me change the size of the window,

I'm just worried that im going to buy the cables
and that they won't help up the resolution what so ever

Component cables will make it less blurry, generally the quality of the image will be higher with them. But keep resolution question in mind anyway :)

Thanks for all the help

I'm just going to order the cables,
I have a HDTV downstairs, so if it doesn't do much on the Pc,
at least the cables won't be useless
