View Full Version : I swear I saw someone do it, and said it looked better...

Jul 7, 2007, 12:34 AM
I remember surfing the web, and somone managed to connect his wii with hdmi and he said there was a difference. However, I can't find it for the life of me.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Or is it even possible to do it?

The Wii has COMPONENT, but no HDMI. Not possible.

Well it's probably possible to buy one of those expesove bpxes which takes any import source and outputs it via HDMI - but as for looking better..... over component. probably not.

Possible upscaler?

I think you are right, and upscaler. For the life of me I couldn't think of that word. Senior moment I suppose. I guess I'll do some more googling later on today.

http://www.freewebs.com/wii1080p/ - is this the sort of thing you are looking for?

As other people have responded, it's probably through a scaler. As for it looking better, if it does it's the TV. The external scaler is just doing a better job getting the 480p content to the screens native resolution than the built in scaler is. The source material isn't changing at all.
