Question about Flat Panel Televisions
My husband and I just upgraded to a 50" Plasma TV last night from an old 25" tube TV. We were so excited, and quickly plugged in our Wii for a good old game of Tennis.
Unforunately, there was a difference immediately in the response on the wii. I even couldn't seem to click on the correct "mii" character, because my pointer was not responding like it used to on the other tv.
I went into my Wii settings and figured everything out there...and the problem was still there. We were very frustrated.
So...I need to figure out why there is a delay.
1) Do I need to buy HD component cables for my Wii?
2) Is it the TV?
3) I also read online that I might want to turn of the Digital NR in the TV's settings?
Thanks for any help.
We just upgraded from a 32" LG tube tv to a 46" Insignia LCD and had the same problem with our Wii and PS3. For us, we just switched the TV settings DCM (digital clear motion) function. We keep it on high for movies and TV shows and turn it completely off when playing Wii and PS3 games. Hope this helps!!

I upgraded my 29" CRT to a 50" Insignia Plamsa HDTV, and experienced a horrible lag as well, making Guitar Hero unplayable on the Wii. Based on a recommendation on another forum, I bought the Nintendo component cables for the Wii ($39.99 at Best Buy), and in the Wii Settings I enabled 480p resolution (which you can only do if you have the component cables), and enabled burn-in protection. That fixed the problem. No more lag! Hope this info helps someone else.
