Question about Nintendo Wii Console
I recently bought new TV - a True HD Panasonic. I use a component cable to connect my Wii to the TV, with the HDTV setting turned on. When I wanted to play some of my virtual console games, a few of them didn't work, especially I noticed that the NES ones had the most problems. I could see the graphics on the background with the 'Home' menu active, but going to the game, I just saw a frozen gray-green image, nothing moved, or anything. The sound was on and when I pressed the 'Home' button again I saw that the game was actually working (the screen 'background' changed), I just didn't see anything during gameplay, rendering the game unplayable. Some games work just fine (Bomberman 93'), but ironically most of my games are NES...I live in Europe, so my TV is PAL.
When using component video cables and a HDTV: Go into the Wii's system
settings, under Screen, change TV Resolution to HDTV (480p) instead of
Standard TV (480i) and change to Widescreen (16:9) under Widescreen
This worked for me, good luck!
