Can you hook the controller up to the console via HDMI for an HD picture?

I remember hearing something about this somewhere and wasn't sure.

No, you CAN'T hook the controller up to the console via HDMI.
You CAN hook the console up to your HDTV via HDMI for an HD picture.

The controller receives an SD (Standard Definition) stream from the console, and the controller is completely wireless. You can hook the controller up to the console to recharge it, I'm assuming.

Check out at 3:00 the new controller

There seems to be two small spots on the top to plug things into, one is probably for headphones but the other might just be a spot for sending signal; however, on the bottom there is a big spot to plug into which is way to big just for a recharging spot.

I recall in one of the articles I read after E3 that the new controller would be capable of rapid communication through a connector for a smooth connection of sorts, so I am not sure if that feature will be used for lag free video conferencing or perhaps to bump up the signal on the screen to make it lag free and look better.

In any case, when I saw that large spot on the bottom of the controller, my mind flashed back to that article about the high speed connection which did not make sense at that time.

The "Port" you see at the top is actually the infrared receiver, look at your wii controller, it has the same black square.
