What do you mean, "it lags"? Some games, such as The Bigs, has a little lag when you swing to hit the ball.

I'm confused too, does it lag or does it just have a poor refresh rate. It might just be the game you are playing, try hooking up your Wii to another TV and see if you get the same results, I don't have a Wii so if all else fails contact customer service.

It has a split second lag. It may not sound like much but compared to a regular tv, its a big problems with such games as Trauma Center where you need to be precise and lagging will become a HUGE problem. I have a Insignia 32 in. HDTV and i think it always pushes out 720p at all times even though the wii's component cable only goes to 480p i believe. If anyone can help me out, i would give them a BIG thanx. BTW people said that some tvs have a "game mode" but mine doesnt.

I'm afraid it's most likely your TV. Upscaling Standard Definition sources onto HD panels used to lead to some "HD Lag". Games such as Guitar Hero 2 actually added a lag adjuster to try and compensate as I'm sure you can imagine, it was a nightmare for music rhythm games.

The only solutions really as far as I know are to either buy a new TV or an external scaler so that the TV itself doesn't have to process the image. I was worried I would get lag when I first bought my Sony Bravia, but luckily it would appear that newer panels have very little (if any) lag when upscaling from lower resolution sources.

Some of your problems may be in that the Wii is not really a High Def console per se, its more like a Enhanced Def console seeing as how it will only do 480p, unless that has changed with any updates.

Have you changed the settings to HDTV in the Wii settings?

Default Lag time with Insignia TV & the WII

Neither Nintendo, Insignia nor the Geek Squad knew the answer to this problem. I found the answer on You Tube. While the TV and the Wii are on, turn the Game Mode On. Go back to settings and the Insignia Motion should be highlighted - believe or not, turn it OFF. Now it works perfectly. Hope this helps.
