    Seeing that there is no news from Nintendo about this, does anyone know (other than the Lik Sang item, thanks Sony!) of a good Component to VGA adapter I'd be able to use with the Wii? Heck, does the Wii even come with component cables? I'm guessing I'll be spending a lot of money here.

    I've seen cables like these http://www.oyyy.co.uk/product.php?xProd=19698&froogle, but I'm wondering if it would be as simple as using a male to male Component cable adapter with VGA on the other end?

    My samsung 171mp came with a proprietary male componet female vga cable and I have to use it to enable 1080i and 720p on it. To connect my 360 I just bought 3 rca gender changers from radio shack for a few dollars instead buying a 360VGA cable and now I have 720p on a 17" monitor and it looks sharper and better than on using component on my older 32"wega. Also I can sit furthur away from it than the other tv (always a bonnus as my father always yelled at me growing "don't sit so damn close to the tv!")
