    I was wondering, if I had a (for example) PAL wii, and tried to use it with an NTSC tv, what would be the result?
    If its viewable, I could change the region(from the SMAW guide of course), right?

    I also have that question, but I have a NTSC wii, and ordered the component cables, with this, will I be able to play PAL games on a NTSC LCD tv???

    I'm not sure if this will help, but I play my PAL GC games on my NTSC wii using a HDMI adapter to my LCD computer monitor.
    The main reason PAL games would have issues is because the PAL and NTSC color formats are different for S-Video and composite video formats. If your TV or monitor says it can support PAL and NTSC then great, otherwise you need to use a more modern connection format.
    A softmoded wii should be able to play most any game right off regardless of region, its the TV/monitor that has the problems.
    Hope this helps!

    You can go to USB LOADER GX or whichever loader you decide to use, change the video settings to FORCE NTSC, and you will be able to play them on an NTSC wii...

    Sorry to say, but this doesn't always fix the issue. If S-video or composite cables are being used, then the screen will need to be compatible with PAL/NTSC video formats. I know this because my NTSC Wii Played my PAL GC games in black and white until I started using my Wii HDMI adapter, even with the video set to Force NTSC.

    To the best of my knowledge, Component cables should work fine.

    @nightstah: Which part? I just ask because any games I played that required 60Hz refresh would show up in black and white even with the force NTSC.

    Try FORCE Wii, or redo the softmod. It worked with me... I could play both my pal games as discs and iso's

    Thanks for the advice, but it didn't work for me. Don't worry though, I've had this problem fixed I was just mentioning it as an answer to your question.
