After upgrading from a 27″ CRT TV to a 55″ LED TV, I started to have this really annoying lag on my wiimote where I would point at something, and it would take nearly a full second for the cursor on the screen to follow. I had people suggest that I needed to put the sensor bar above the screen, which didn’t change anything. I also had people suggest that I needed to change the screen resolution, but I couldn’t because the option was greyed out. After digging around, I found that the only way to get the higher resolution was to use component cables (the one with a total of 5 cords) instead of the composite cables (the one with 3 cords) that came with the wii. Since this was only $5 or $6, I decided to try it out. Sure enough, the lag is almost completely gone now. So if you are having the same problem, buy these cords and change the screen resolution in the wii video settings to 480p. I don’t know if the $30 official Nintendo cords work slightly better or not, but as far as I can tell, these do the job.

Now that the Wii U is out, we decided not to upgrade nor replace yet. The last cheapest no-brand cable is actually bad, which is a hard thing to do. The connection are not perfect so there were all the intermittent problems as reported. On the other hand, the price of these old Nintendo accessories did not come down. Anyway I decided to try something with a brand name on it but don’t cost much more. After over a month of use, there weren’t any problems. Of course I am careful not to plug and unplug it because you don’t need to.

Honestly, I had no idea how much of a difference this would make. I got a used plasma HDTV recently, and I was shocked by how bad the composite cable made the picture quality look despite being a plasma. I also didn’t know that there was a difference between YCbCr and YPbPr until I got this TV; my crappy LCD HDTV only had YCbCr, and I just assumed it was all the same based on the cable you used.
How wrong I was.
What once looked washed out, dark, and muddy was now very clear and almost computer-monitor-like. For instance, Resident Evil 4 Wii looked horrible on my LCD but fine on my CRT, meanwhile Metroid Other M looked fine either way.
