    Hi. Is it possible to use homebrew to get 480p on my PAL Wii U's virtual Wii when playing using my original discs?

    Yes, but why?

    Vwii (and real Wiis) already support 480p if you use component/hdmi cables and select an equal or higher resolution in the settings

    PAL (v)Wii does support 480p. I own both a Wii and a Wii U using component and HDMI and can confirm this. If you're thinking of PAL GameCube, then yes, the games don't take advantage of the hardware's progressive scan support for unknown reasons. A problem easily fixed by Swiss or Nintendont.

    Whoever told you that PAL region Wii games don't support 480p was mistaken.

    I know, but if I boot up my Wii game it's not 480p, interlaced. I need to know if there's a loader I can use for retail discs to get 480p.
    There isn't an option for that in the vWii system menu.

    Not all Wii games support 480p, that's probably why.
    Anyway, you should be able to boot it from a USB loader and force the video mode to 480p, or use Gecko OS.

    Neogamma will boot retail discs, and you can force video mode too.

    Wii games that 8 know support Progressive Scan and/or Wide-screen (not a full list)
    .

    Games that support 480p have an icon on the back of the box that reads "EDTV/HDTV compatible". A few early games offer 480p but do not display the icon, e.g. Sonic and the Secret Rings.

    Thanks guys, I'll check out Neogamma and Gevko Os! I'm testing with SMG 2 wich supports 480p. What's annoying is that the system menu isn't 480p either. is there any way to mod that?

    USB Loader GX can also boot discs, and has a nicer GUI.
    System menu should be 480p. How are you checking by the way? The TV would just display it as whatever resolution you have set in the Wii U settings, since it's upscaled.
