wii 1080p display

ElDorito 7,478 1,374 September 15, 2015 at 11:57 AM More eBay Deals
Bought this http://www.ebay.com/itm/331596305...EBIDX%3AIT for a vizio m60 c3... still displays 480p on the tv. Is there something that I have to do to make it 1080p or is it because wii can only output 480p... If it's because wii cannot output 1080p, then why say 1080p on the adapter? Thanks.

Is your google broken? https://www.avforums.com/threads/...n.1059965/

The reason the adapter says it is because it's ebay. It's essentially a marketing word. Would you buy the one that says 480 or 1080, 1080 is clearly better, it's a bigger number.

Not only did I google it, I also watched a youtube video.... With the link you gave me, it just says that it can output 480p which I knew.... So the 1080p on the adapter is just nonsense? This was for my mother... she needed it because the components on her tv were taken... I have mine hooked up via component cables... Is it even worth it for me to use the HDMI adapter then or keep it as is?

This is the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=674YUv5skuw

I should have read the comments.. there's a link to a forum: http://gbatemp.net/threads/wii2hd...691/page-2

So essentially most tvs already have an upscaler.. so no need for this for me... I'll stick with the component cables on my own tv...

The 1080p is just a buzzword on there. I use one just because I didn't like how much space the other cables took up. I also have a display that is HDMI only so this is my only option in that case.

Yea... as I said for my mom her tv has the ports taken up.. so she had to use HDMI.... For me I already ran the cables behind the wall so I'll stick with the component

This says it converts input signals to 1080. So you should be able to use the HDMI TV port with it. 1080 is not "just a number". It clearly states it converts to 1080 format. The "upscaling" is a dubious claim that really is subjective, so not a false statement, but there are varying ways to "upscale".
