Netflix on Wii

Does anyone use Netflix through the Wii? I've only seen one persons setup, the resolution looked off, and the TV wasn't old enough for that to be happening.

Also anyone know off the top of there heads what the Yellow light means? Ever since I got it online it's been doing it when I go to shut down.

I use it and nothing looks off. The picture quality is great. Maybe they were using the standard RCA cables that come with the Wii?! Throw those things away and get yourself a nice HDMI cable.
As far as the yellow goes... I think that just means that it's on standby and not fully off. Try holding the power button until the light goes completely off. I might be wrong on this though.

That's what I'm doing to turn it off at night. I'll go get the hdmi, it was my Brother's setup, he was using rca, I do too, but my resolution with games at least, is fine.

Thank you much.

I'm using the RCA cables on my Wii and I have no problems with Netflix. It does look a lot better on my PS3, but that does have the HDMI cable too.

The yellow light does mean it is in Standby. You can push and hold the power button for approx 5-7 seconds and then it will turn to green again but if you keep holding it will then go to red.
