Hi all,

I just picked up a 42" Sony Wega KDF-42E2000 for a great deal. I hooked up my HDTV source, 360 etc and everything looks beautiful at HD resolutions.

The Wii just doesnt look that great @ 480p via component. What settings are you guys with the e2000 (or a2000 etc) using? Right now im trying to decide between a modified "Vivid" setting. Any help that you can give would be great.

thanks,

Jeff

For the Wii I have the following settings which looks ok, slightly blurry though.

Picture Mode: Custom
Iris: Auto 2
Picture: 50
Brightness: 38
Color: 60
Hue: 0
Color Temp: Warm 1
Sharpness: 13
Black Corr: Low
Gamma: Max
Clear White: off
Color Corrector: off

I would be interested to see what other settings people are using to see if I can get the picture any better.

Last night I tried setting the Wii to output to 480i & Widescreen and WHAM! everything became more sharp and less blurry.

I'm wondering if my TV upconverts 480i to the 1280x720 native resolution better than 480p.... hmm

Your TV probably doesn't upconvert 480p content at all. Mine doesn't. It only upconverts 480i and 720p.

Do you have a Sony Projection TV?

If an HDTV accepts 480i through component, it will deinterlace the signal and scale it to the sets native resolution. If 480i looks better on your set than 480p, then your set has a better deinterlacer than the Wii.

Jeff, I have the 46e2000 and I am feeding 480p via component. I have been pleased with the picture but then again, for a game, I am not that critical. I tend to focus on picture quality more more for regular TV and definitely for movies on DVD. However, you have piqued my curiosity. When I get home, I will change the output to 480i and see if I get a better image. My gut tells me I will because the Sony probably has a better deinterlacer than the Wii. In either case, the Sony will then scale the image to it's native resolution which is 720p.

Actually its now a moot point. I just noticed an increased amout of latency using 480i than in 480p. Playing the virtual console games showed it the most.

I'm going to switch back to 480p and keep it on Vivid mode

That would make sense. I would imagine that it would take a few milliseconds for the TV to deinterlace the signal.

What are your settings for other sources? I really like how maxed out game (and lower brightness) looks for most sources but for sporting events its overly white.

The Wii shouldn't be deinterlacing -- it should be rendering 480p, and interlacing to get 480i. Do you have reason to believe otherwise?

I've always heard the the games are native 480i and the Wii must deinterlace them. Can't remeber where I heard it though...

play wii games on 4:3 (wii settings), so that it does not stretch the picture (and thus show the jaggies even more). use component cables but still select 576i (Aussie Wii), sit back (4 meters) and enjoy.

with 480p, the resolution is good but theres too much jaggies, with 576i and a good hdtv (i have a 1024x768 panasonic plasma which does it well) i don't lose much if any perceivable detail, but the 576i signal reduces if not, at least changes and softens the jaggies. Depends on how well your tv upscales 576i though. i take it, it would be good.

ps. goldeneye007 is cool and this method makes a big difference.

otherways to reduce the jagged looks is max brightness and min contrast, lowering sharpness, but it all comes at a cost to pic depth and quality...always a balancing act. im happy with my 576i and component cable idea.
