I am finally moving up in the world and replacing my 23" CRT television and will be getting an HDTV. My main gaming platform is the Wii and I have heard that on a 46" LCD it starts to really show its lack of technical prowess.

What size TV do you play the Wii on, what type of TV is it, and how does it look?

37" Sharp Aquos (720p).

It looked like ass on my 30"; I doubt it will be better on my 37 (just got it this weekend, and Wii game play is ... VERY secondary to RB2 360 err, XBOX360).

I play it on a 34 inch Samsung, CRT (HD).  It looks fine.

57" RPCRT.  Some games look better than others.  None look awful.

I play on the 37" Sharp Aquos 1080p and I also use it on a 52" Mitsubishi 1080i. It definitely looks better on the 37" because the jaggies are much smaller.

The biggest problem with a lot of Wii games is the lack of anti aliasing, and the bigger the screen, the bigger the jaggy.

32" LCD HDTV with component cables and it depends on the game. Metroid Prime 3 looked great, Godfather looked pretty muddy. Resident Evil 4 looks kind of muddy. Progressive mode on Eternal Darkness (Gamecube) actually looked pretty good. Unfortunately I got my tv after I played Super Mario Galaxy, but I've heard it looks quite good.

42' Plasma looks fine with some picture calibration. You're going to get jaggies as its 480p but they seem so minor to me. As reference of my jaggies tolerance level, PS2 games (FFXII / GOW2) look fine too.

My story won't help you much, JSL - our Wii (that sounds grammatically odd!) has been played on a 32" standard TV (looks fine) and a 32" HDTV 720p (looks fine).  On the HTTV, it's only been with with Puzzle League, so not much of a test there.

46" Samsung DLP.  Looks very good but I've been genuinely impressed with how this TV handles 480p compared to some other TVs I've seen.

52" Samsung DLP.

Colorful games look OK. Rayman, Mario galaxy, Boom Blox, etc.

Games that try for any level of realism look really bad to me. I even thought Metroid was awful.

To me the Wii was designed for SDTV and when I move I plan to hook it back up to the 32" CRT. The tracking worked much better on a smaller set IMO.

I play on a 55" SXRD TV from Sony.

No issues, whatsoever.  Everything looks great.

Hey, at least you don't hide it.

I play on a 42" Sony it looks fine, not spectacular, just fine. Some games look really good, but those are few and far between.

Our Wii looks great on our 27" RCA. I have also hooked it up to our Samsung 37" LCD which also looks good.

It's about a 45" Toshiba but it's an older set (10 years) and standard def stuff looks
really good because that's what it was built to display.

40 inch samsung fullHD. Looks good but am not the most picky viewer either. Feels great sizewise though since my last telly was 20 inch crt and that felt really small.

So now that I've rehooked up the home theatre to the new set ( LC-37D44U - 2008 Sharp Aquos 720p LCD) and reconfigured the video settings, I'd have to say that the Wii looks fine through component. It doesn't compare to the next-gens, but it's certainly not that bad.

We have an infocus in72 (I think it's the 72) that's native 480p so it looks awesome, no artifacting, and a 50" sammy 720 plasma that does artifact. I've also attached it to a pio 150fd and it artifacts there too. The PJ makes the best picture and immersion factor but only in the dark.
