I couldn't find any info on this site for this, but I plugged in my Gamecube to a newer big screen TV and the graphics were really fuzzy. Is this something I have to accept or do I need special cables? I apologize in advance if this has been brought up before.

It should work just fine. Did you use the standard AV cords that came with the system or a third party? What type of T.V?

I acutally used an RF adapter. I don't have the AV cables for the cube. The TV is a Samsung of sorts. It's not mine.

It may be that the TV doesn't work too well with the adapter (especially if it is a newer set). My T.V had a similar problem with my SNES RF adapter. Everything looked a bit washed out and fuzzy on that as well.

Nope, I had to upgrade to the AV Cables to get it to display correctly. You might be in the same boat that I was in.

RF is a really horrible connection, hence the fuzziness. If you can, get a component lead for your GameCube as this'll give you much better picture quality.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

Why not just use your Wii and a set of component cables?
And i'm pretty sure the newer GCN models ditched the Component input in the back, so if you have one of the earlier GCN models you should have a Component input in the back. So if that's the case you NEED to get component cables.

If not, get an S-Video cable. As for RF don't even bother my friend! :p
