    I have a Wiikey installed and it works. I'm not that slow.

    The problem is that the screen goes blank and tells me there is no displayable signal. I'm guessing this has to do with the 50 Hz difference, but how can I force it to show? I use a V-Digi VD-Z3 transcoder and Dell 2007WFP.

    American television are just not designed to handle a PAL signal. The frequency and number of lines are different

    in the US they have no reason to include 50hz so they don't [​IMG]
    But i'm guessing you are trying to play a GAMECUBE game? kind of significant detail
