    Wii in HD? No, I'm not talking about Wii U

    Is it possible to play Wii games in HD? On the Nintendo Wii console itself? Now, before you say "no it's not possible" just hear me out.

    I have a theory that something in the Wii controls the output of 480p. Looking at the Dolphin Emulator for pc, I think it is possible to play full 1080p HD Wii games. How though? I'm thinking that if you somehow took out the graphics card or whatever outputs the game in 480p, rebuilt the Wii with a better processor, it would be possible to play HD Wii games from the console.

    Any thoughts on this?

    There are, I'm not sure what you call it, (pardon me for being 17 ), hardware ways to do it. I know its a type of adapter/converter/w/e that you plug your Wii's AV Cable into then you plug the converter/adapter's/whatever's cables into your TV and it should be 720p (or maybe 1080p). I'm not certain since I ran into someone who was a mod here 2 years ago and did that.

    You mean a HDMI adapter? Such as the Wii2HD HDMI adapter? I don't think those really work. Plus, the Wii can only play 480p and it would be difficult for any video proof since it's impossible to record HDMI.
