Anyone using an upscaler with their Wii?
I have been using a Sony Vega HD CRT for years, but decided to buy an LCD finally so I could have proper PC connections to run an HTPC without all the workarounds. I bought a cheap RCA, which actually looks a lot nicer than I expected for everything I have thrown at it so far... except the Wii. Apparently, one of the ways they were able to sell this TV so cheap is to skimp on the upscaler.
So, after having been used to the beautiful visuals (for the Wii) of The Last Story, I was dismayed when I... Read more →

Do you think Virual Console games will work on Nintendo's next console? (I realize it's too early to know for sure)
I'm wondering if there's anything in the way they market the games that would provide a clue. I've avoided Wii fever but do want to play the Mario Galaxy games and several old favorites on the Virtual Console. The new price is about right for me assuming my VC purchases will carry over to the next console.

My Wii will not power on. There are no lights that turn on. I've unplugged everything from the console and left it unplugged.
I plugged just the power adapter back in (checking to make sure it was in securely and such). I plugged it into the surge protector. Still nothing. I tried another outlet in another room that I know works, still nothing. So I left it all unplugged for several days and tried again. Still no power at all. Should I see if I get it repaired or purchase a new power adapter?

Overheating and shutting down
Often when I'm playing Wii, the console will shut itself off without any notice. When I feel the Wii it is pretty hot, so I think it may be an overheating issue. Has anyone else had this issue? If so is there a way to go through Nintendo for repairs for this problem?

Wii Speed Slower?
I've run the custom Wii speed test from www.speedtest.net and it always shows around 2Mbps down and .30Mbps up. I currently have a 20Mbps down/2Mbps up Charter cable connection. It shows 20/2 most of the time on my PC and around 17/2 on my PS3. What's up with the Wii. I've did several Google searches on the subject. Is it an Opera browser limitation, Wii internet hardware thing or what? I have my Wii connected via USB/LAN to a Netgear WNDR3700 gigabit router and Motorola SB6120 cable... Read more →

Sensor Bar Problems
My sensor bar has recently stopped working as it should. I have to point far to the right to get it to register the pointer on the screen. Even when it does register, the point skips around. I have tried this with multiple controllers and am fairly sure that it is the sensor bar. Has anyone else had this problem?
