Wii display issues (dots/lines on screen)

Hi all,
I noticed this since I got my Wii that there was often a strange short vertical line about two thirds across the screen on my CRT TV.
I have since bought a 47" TV and could still see that line appearing on and off. I bought a cheap component cable off ebay which allowed me to select the 480p display resolution for the HD TV. I did this and now have noticed a number of little flickering dots in little lines around the screen.
I don't know if this is because the cable was cheap or if it has made the issue worse than before with the 480 resolution?
I was tempted to get the Wii HDMI converter off ebay but as they're around £12 or more I would rather not if I'd just get the same result as the composite cables?

Any ideas anyone?

Sounds like an issue with graphics chip or graphics memory on the Wii itself.. Not something most can fix at home

Cool, cheers Kymmy. It's not too major, I might just get a PS3 instead now!

It's also a common fault on PC video cards
