    Was wondering if this is worth the hassle, could you softmod the wii to output ntsc signal or is it locked to pal, reason I ask is because I can get one cheap. I know you have to get a power converter.

    yes, you can force the signal output on the loader you use, so there's no problem in this.

    The first signal will be the default one from the wii, untill the force signal its loaded, either using priiloader or just the settings form the USB loader.

    Component video may work for some HDTVs. Manufacturers once in a while forget to TELL anyone the TV accepts PAL modes.

    Don't worry about power. Wii has an external power brick you can get in the USA.
