I guess, then, I will have to break the news to my family that we are not seeing what we thought we were seeing.

Here's a great chart to back up Stew...who's usually right.

Let me clear it up pic quality BR vs Wii not the DVD's but the streaming end of it


I don't think Wii can stream Netflix's HD titles.

Ah, gotcha. I have a Wii and a BD player that can stream Netflix, but haven't used that feature on either, so I don't know what the comparison would be.

I would guess, that a BD player would do it better since the Wii only outputs SD and doesn't have HDMI, but I'm not sure (don't think the Wii can do Netflix HD at all, but don't know how good Netflix HD quality is anyway).

My suggestion would just be to try it out on the Wii first. If you're happy with it, stick with it. If you feel it's lacking, look into a BD player.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

To passify, I will go looking for a 85 incher and stand 10ft away and dream what might be if I could put it in the corner of my 12x15 room :lol:

As mentioned earlier, a 55"-73" will suffice at 10' away.

No, it's science.

Hopefully you didn't waste your money on a 1080p set, because you definitely can't see that from 10' away (vs 720p)


I would have to generally agree with that. Betting if you did know which you were being shown, you could not tell.
