    I press on any of my games from Genesis VC, and they say "unsupported format" on my TV itself, (not Wii) I have it plugged into HD. Help! Thanks!

    Edit: Also, Genplus GX works.

    Some VC gets screwy with 480p. Here's a solution.
    1. Change the tv settings in the Wii settings menu to 480i (don't worry this is just temporary)

    2. Start a VC game. and hit the home button after 30 seconds or so.

    3. Select operations manual and the connect a nunchuck to the wiimote.

    4. Now hold down A and 2 at the same time on the wiimote and z on the nunchuck. You should here a chime.

    5. Exit the operations manual and all should be fine. Now switch your tv settings back to 480p.

    No chime, and it turns out it was already in 480i. Testing to see if it works (the games) in 480P.

    Maybe it was already active you can try the same thing but press 1 instead of 2. It will turn off that option.

    Edit: Disregard this post since you have it working but it may be useful if you run into this problem with other games in the future.
