    Video turns off when playing virtual console games

    I downloaded a virtual console game (Sonic) and when I start accessing it the video blacks out (says "No Signal" on my TV) (sound is still ok). I am running the video through my Yamaha AV which video-upscales to component Video, displaying it on my Panasonic 42" plasma.
    It seems that the Video-signals change when running virtual console games and the HSync/VSync signals are off so some component in the video path is unable to synchronize the signal anymore. When I press "Home" the picture comes back with the "RESET" / "Wii MENU" buttons.
    All other games run perfectly - its just the virtual console channel which has this problem

    Anybody else had a similar experience? - I heard about people complaining that the Virtual console games would be stretched on a wide-screen display. Maybe both problems could be fixed in a firmware update?

    It's cheaper to buy the gamecube "Sonic Collection" game. It has all the old sonic games. I just bought it for $13.

    I'm having the same EXACT problem. Similar setup with a Yamaha AV unit but a Sony LCD. Have you resolved your issue? What's your Nintendo email addie? Maybe we can stay in touch?
