I've recently got a Wii console which was bought in the USA - which means that it uses the NTSC format. I'm still not sure what are the exact differences between the NTSC and PAL formats, but I know that the NTSC quality is not as good as the PAL's. The format where I live is PAL. I've simply connected it to the TV (regular resolution) and it works and shows the picture, but the quality is not very good and the picture looks very "scanlined". I've checked in the Wikipedia's specifications, and it showed that even though the 480i (interlaced) format is only for the NTSC console, both the PAL and NTSC ones are supposed to have 480p (progressive) format. There's another one that they've called "576i" which seems to be only for PAL and SECAM, but I don't know what this format is. I went into the Wii's screen settings, and I had the two options of 480i and 480p. The 480i was obbviously the one used, but when I wanted to switch it I couldn't because the 480p format was grayed out. Why is it grayed out and how can I fix it? Because the interlacing seems to greatly reduce the picture's quality and make it more buggy and uneven. Thanks in advance.
