    when the 4.2E update came out, there was a rumours of consoles that have bootmii etc homebrew
    installed could brick and be useless forever.. Then came the safe 4.2 updater
    wich installs the nintendo stock update files, but leaves homebrew intact and wont touch the boot 2 at all.

    this was not the waninkoko updater that does the trucha signing, the updater left all files intact as they would
    be on a regular ninty update.

    so I ran that update, and everything works fine except my legal bought virtual console games..
    the problem is that the games boot fine, but my tv says "unsupported format error"

    I have 37" LG LCD HDTV wii is set to 480p EDTV

    does this for all VC games, except megaman 9 wich is a wiiware game.

    any ideas any suggestions??


    N64 games work fine, the NES, SNES games just show black screen, but I can hear the game in the backround.. so the game
    is running, but there is something wrong with the resolution??

    Dude, no need to make 2 threads for this... OMG.

    If you connected to your TV with a component cable try this:

    Display problems while playing Virtual Console games

    If you are experiencing display issues (dim, blank or half-blank screen, ghosted image, etc.) with a Virtual Console game while using the Component Video Cable, please read the following:

    Some Virtual Console games default to displaying 240 lines of video. Some HD TV's are unable to display a signal with only 240 lines. Try the steps below to set the Wii to output 480 lines of video, which may solve the problem:

    1. While on the Wii Channel Menu (main screen of the Wii), connect a Nunchuk to Wii Remote.
    2. Select the Virtual Console game from the Wii menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
    3. When the game starts, press the Home button on the Wii Remote. (In many games, the music can be heard when the game starts.)
    4. Select "Operations Manual" from the Home menu.
    5. Press the Z + A + 2 Button simultaneously (the Z Button is on the Nunchuk). A sound will be heard if the button combination has been entered correctly.
    6. Close the Home menu. The game should now display correctly. Note: You will not have to do this the next time you play, as the Wii console will remember these settings.
    If the Virtual Console game is still not displaying properly, but all other games work fine, please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.
