    The Wii just can't do anything beyond 480p. It is beyond its hardware capabilities.

    480p if you have component cables.

    So it doesn't matter if I have component video.I thought it was restricted by nintendo, but could be bypassed by homebrew.

    Sure it can be bypassed, if you want to render 2-3fps. The hardware just can't handle it.

    Use one of the various ways to plug your computer into the TV instead if you want to watch stuff on it.
