Hi, I wanted to add this information to the wiki, but I have no editing rights there. Maybe somebody of you wants to add this information to http://gamesx.com/wiki/doku.php?id=av:wii_multi_av_pinout (Pins 14-16 not doing anything for PAL Wiis).
I only tried pin 15 (data line 2) and measured the pin 15 voltage post-mod with a multimeter, which was indeed 5V, yet the Wii still output 576i50.

On hardwarebook.info, it's also stated that pin 16 (data line 3) seems to not work on PAL Wiis: http://www.hardwarebook.info/Wii_A/V
I guess that they only tested pin 16, most likely none of the D-Terminal data pins work on PAL Wiis.

That raises the question whether those pins only work on NTSC-J Wiis, or also on North American NTSC Wiis?

Also, on http://gamesx.com/wiki/doku.php?id=av:av_converters you could add the Component to RGBHV transcoders Mayflash VGA005 (converter box), Mayflash VGA004 (Wii+PS3 converter cable) and Extron CVC 100 / 200 / 300.
