you guys are awesome.
so... maybe this will help someone. just wanna share...
i just got my wii yesterday at lunch. hooked it up to me projector and holy shot it looked like ass. rca video ftl.
so tonight after work i go straight out and grab some component cables. plug it all up and i get.. nothing.
after a lot of swapping it and my dvd drive between my projector and a tube tv in my mame cab with component in, verifying cable and wii are ok, i head to the net.
spent like 2 hours reading and somewhere along the the lines, on here and other random places, i got the feel from the way rgb/vga works compared to the Y/Cr/Cb to try something.
headed back out, plugged wii into tube tv, set it to progressive. screen went blank (it doesnt do progressive). turn it off then moved everything back to my projector and hooked it all back up. turned her and... action
quick check of settings and im still in progressive.
my projector is the infocus X1 that was so popular. i have a component -> vga adapter that i use with my dvd player. it seems that it would not take a signal from the wii (Y/Cb/Cr) but once i put it in progressive the projector took it.
well, hope that means something extra to you guys. i only have zelda with it so as far trying another game and then coming back to a progressive game im not sure of the easiest steps i would need to take. if i switched to the rca plug the went back to the component, im unsure if it would resume progressive automatically, although it seems like once its set in the system settings it will always do that first as long as it detects the component cable.
