    That's exactly it though, the 360 outputs a 16:9 signal.

    The Wii outputs a widescreen image, but it outputs it in 4:3 format. It still needs stretched.

    The actual output is 4:3 -- it needs stretched to make it 16:9.

    Here's a test: The little message indicator in the Wii menu should be a circle. I bet you see it as an oval -- vertically taller than it is horizontal, when the Wii is set to widescreen. It should be a circle.

    Oh, and you should ensure these two settings:
    1. 480p
    2. Widescreen
