I'm extremely confused, when i set my wii to 16:9 it was not wide at all. It looked exactly the same and the menu looked 4:3. Maybe it looked a little zoomed out but the sides were not wide.
Pressing info on my tv said the signal was 480i and "SD" (standard definition). Going into other wii options i see 480p is not available. I don't know what happens if my TV gets a 480p signal but i do know it supports 1080p.
Whats with this widescreen business and 480p thing?
