This is my first post here, so greetings!
I have heard that the problem I'm about to post has turned out to be quite frequent. However, I haven't found anything using the search function, so sorry if this has already been posted.
Basically, I got my new U.S Component Cables the other day and most of my Virtual Console NES/SNES games aren't working with it. Here's what happened:
1 Played for about 5 minutes.
2 Paused using “home” button
3 Tried to go back into the game
4 My TV lost the signal. On the screen it said "No Signal". The screen went black.
What’s really annoying is the fact that I can't reboot it. To leave the game I have to press “home” and the error occurs when I try to exit the pause menu. I am left with no option but to press "Wii Menu".
I even uninstalled the game channels, erased the memory files, and downloaded them again but the problem persists.
I tried to change the output signal to 50Hz, 60Hz and EDTV. None of them worked.
I’m using an Official Nintendo U.S component cable and have my Wii set to 16:9 EDTV.
Basically, the NES/SNES Virtual Console games only work with my standard composite cables but not with my new component ones.
Have you guys any ideas as to what is going on? Do you have the same problem trying to play VC games with Component Cables? Do you think Nintendo will patch this problem? I don't want to have to switch between composite and component cables everytime I want to switch from Wii to VC games.
