    So, do I have to do anything special to use my North American Wii on a Hong Kong PAL TV? Besides the whole voltage converter thing. My Wii also has a Wiikey2 if that does anything.

    Most PAL TVs made in the last 10 years or more will handle NTSC input without missing a beat. In fact I'm hard pushed to recall the last time I had an issue with NTSC input on a "PAL" TV (I say that because so many are multistandard, despite being sold as PAL)...

    I've used Japanese NTSC consoles on my PAL TV...

    It will just "letterbox" the picture, but will work fine on a newer TV...

    Older PAL TVs will give a black and white slightly garbled picture.... then you know it is not compatible...
