    Ntsc Pal :s

    Dear Wii Players

    I have a question, next year i will go for a holiday to the united States.
    I`m from Europe, and i also bought my Wii in Europe (So it`s a PAL Version).
    I have also PAL Games. I know that America has NTSC and the TV have another Frequency or something.

    So my Question is:

    Will i be able to play Wii on American TV`s?
    Will there be any Graphic Errors or something?


    See you.

    Aside from the possible power/frequency problems, most DVD players are region-encoded so I'm assuming the Wii is no different.

    Not 100% sure on this though.

    I think it's to stop us buying games and stuff that are only intended for one region.

    Hate to say this, but unless you get an american wii, your screwed...
    The games won't work here either

    SO unless you bring an european tv with you, you'l be fine except your going to have to buy the games from across the world... ( and your gonna need to get an adapter for the power plugs)

    I would say, sell your wii and games and buy em again in north america, or dont play wii during the holidays

    Are you sure about this guys.... My European Wii has an option in the screen settings to choose either 50hz, 60hz or 480pdi signals. The only problem I forsee is the power one (240v vs 110v) and maybe region protected games (if you buy some in the states).

    Certain TVs will support both NTSC and PAL. In Europe it's almost a given, in America not so much. But if the TV supports Pal then sure, it'll work. So as long as you take your own games with the Wii, and the TV supports Pal you should be fine.

    Hi Guys!
    UNBELIEVABLE!

    Wow! Razoola is right ^^ there IS an Option where you can change between 50hz or 60hz. I haven`t seen it before ^^
    The Graphic is MUCH better now, i changed it from 50 hz to 60hz!
    Everybody should try it! It`s a bit sharper than before!

    So i assume that the video signal output will be okay.
    But there`s still the power supply problem.
    But it could work. I always use my Cellphone Charger (Bought in EU)
    in America (with Adapter) and it works fine. But on the Cellphone Charger i can Read: "Power Input from 100 - 240v )

    I`m gonna give it a try then xD

    Yea, I changed mine from 50 to 60 also... Basically at 50hz scrolling through 3D worlds are not smooth... If you have a sharp eye you can see slight stutters so the game plays at the correct speed (can notice this in the golf game very much).

    Anyone with a TV that cal output 60hz should really set the Wii to 60hz.

    Surely the only difference isn't frequency though ?? I mean NTSC has less lines per inch than PAL and runs at a lower image resoultion.

    It's 60Hz instead of 50Hz yeah, but I'm pretty sure that's not the only difference.

    Your Wii --> Laptop --> American TV solution is a classic tho
