    Hi guys,

    I threw together a video showing how to connect the Wii to an LCD monitor with the HD Box Pro. If you're interested in getting one, you might want to have a look and see if this helps your decision.

    I googled it, and came up with nothing.

    Oh, you mean the VDigi cable? If you watched the video you'd know I mention it.

    The VDigi cable does not support 480i which some older games require, and I cannot find any evidence that it supports aspect ratio changes. Also, if your Wii is set to widescreen, the Vdigi's picture seems to fill the whole screen - which is not quite accurate (16:10). The correct ratio should be 16:9. As for Virtual Console games, from what I gather it just stretches the image to fill your widescreen.

    nope, it's not wither or not the cable supports 480i, it's if the monitor supports it

    my vdigi cable doesnt work in my crt monitor on 480i but works on my computer's lcd monitor (via vga)

    the the aspect ratio is something the monitor does, my 16:10 monitor cant stretch 16:9
