    Force PAL on NTSC console

    Hello,
    I have NTSC version of Wii and I have a problem because my TV is compatibile with PAL 50Hz only (monochromatic screen). I've found the Gecko OS loader, but it works only for games saved on DVD's, not for homebrew or games from USB.

    Is possible to set force PAL 50Hz system automatically after I turn on the console? I want to see homebrew and games from USB in color.

    Greets,
    bialasik

    Sadly, I haven't found any 'force PAL video system' option.
    Maybe there is a better way?

    Yeah like skellinator said, I think you need to change the region of your wii. Mauifrog has a guide to region change any wii.

    That tutorial is about changing region (PAL games in NTSC-U, NTSC-J games in PAL, etc.) or about changing the video system (NTSC 60Hz to PAL 50Hz)? In my opinion, this is for playing games from worldwide...

    I want to change the video system, like in Gecko OS but for homebrew and games from USB.

    If your wii is ntsc now, and you change the region to pal, won't it output a pal signal instead of ntsc?

    yes. As far as I know the only way to do that is by region changing. Be sure that you are aware of the issues that region changing can lead to and take the appropriate steps to protect yourself.

    Your other option would be to get a region free tv . One more thing that may do the trick is the component cable for the wii. I cant remember where I saw it but I think those are technically region free in the fact that that signal is universal everywhere. I am not 100% sure on that but it may be worth a look.
