    Hi All

    Bought a wii for her indoors birthday and hooked it up through my system - dennon amp to sagem 50" telly. I bought the component cable connector which allows a 480P picture - it's noticably sharper when reading text.

    However, some games do not work with it. For example, mario 8 and trauma center. The solution would appear to be

    1) set box back to 50hz (the screen then goes blank)
    2) reach around the back of the wii and plug in the composite connector
    3) plug that into the telly

    Which is frankly completely crappy, as the process to put it back to EDTV is more painful

    I've done a quick google, and no-one else seems to have this problem - is it just me? (or should that be mii?)

    Mario party 8 and Trauma are unfortunately 4:3 which could be a problem but both definitely play over component.
