  • wii are verwii sowii but wii having problems with 480p output

    http://www.engadget.com/2007/02/18/w...h-480p-output/

    A thread over at the Nintendo of America forums has highlighted a potential problem with the Nintendo Wii's output of 480p signals using component cables. Over a dozen members have reported blank and flickering screens on a range of televisions from 30" Toshiba CRTs right up to 65" Sony XBR LCD TVs. The type of cable isn't limited to third party solutions from the likes of Mad Catz, Psyclone, and Joytech either: several reports indicate that the standard Nintendo component cable also exhibits the problem (no word on whether DIY will save you). Strangely, the problem -- which Tharealfofo states is "like nothing is connected" -- occurs in similar sections of certain games and applications: several forum members have mentioned that the screen goes blank during specific sections of Zelda, the Wii Channel, and in the Opera browser. Switching to 480i output in nearly all cases fixes the problem. The broad mix of configurations that are affected suggests that the problem is the Wii itself, so hopefully Nintendo will issue some form of update in the not too distant future. In the meantime, feel free to sound off in the comments about how being forced to view your games with interlacing is a breach of your fundamental human rights.

    Its been reported to happen on a variety of TVs, all sizes and makes and with a variety of component cables, including the official ones.

    The issue appears to be either overheating of the GPU, overheating of the RAM, or some other hardware issue. Not a cable or TV issue. It appears often (prevalent in Zelda and on the Wii Channels) as artifacting on the screen and anyone who overclocks their PC video cards probably knows what it looks like. Texture tearing, white dots in the wrong place, triangles and black screens.

    Nintendo have been replacing the consoles, but it seems to be somewhat of a design issue as it keeps happening even with new ones. It happens at 480p on largely light screens (when the requirements on the GPU are very high due to double resolution from 480p and a lot of detail on light/white screens).

      480p works on my set.

      Brutality, maybe you should post more articles on how PS3's burn down your house?

          Sounds like a whole lot of bullshit to me. Especially when you consider the fact that this is culled from forum postings. Look at the type of miscreants that post on message boards. Brutality for instance. Or Apathy. Or any number of other half-wit dullards.

          PS - Mine works just fine. I also don't know anyone who has this problem.

                I've read about this problem on a couple of occasions. I don't own a Wii; however, if this is the only bug Nintendo has encountered, and it's only happening to an incredibly small percentage of Wii owners, then I wouldn't consider this as big of a deal as Sony's Street Team (aka Brutality) is making it out to be. Expect this issue to be corrected with an update soon.

                Nintendo has a small problem with 480p output, yet Sony had problems with machines blowing up, Blu-Ray discs not playing and consoles shorting out television sets. Riiiiiiiiight...

                PS3 owners, consider yourself pwned.

                        overheating, blowing up and catching on fire. Not literally blowing up like a bomb; it's just selective writing.

                          Nintendo Wii Tops PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 in January

                          Feb. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Nintendo Co.'s Wii outsold Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 during January as consumers bought 436,000 of the video-game consoles.

                          Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 was the second-most purchased machine with sales of 294,000, followed by PlayStation 3 with 244,000, Credit Suisse analyst Heath Terry said today in a report, citing NPD Group Inc. data.

                              ^wii is like the equivalent to cam'ron: wack(with the games out right now) and has a hardcore following of pre-teen/teenagers.
