    anybody an idea, why all the USB-loaders on my PAL-Wii in 480i-Mode
    become a red-shiny screen while they lookeing for an usb-disk ?

    ever when the gui ist started all seems to be fine in normal colors,
    but when the Wii is mounting then WBFS and count downwards from 40 Sec,
    it immediately become red, like an NTSC-Game [​IMG]
    (in standard mode (576p ?) all colours are ok [​IMG] )

    I looked into the sources of different laoders, but didnĀ“t found any clue....

    why doesnt this happen with the origin Waninoko USB-Loader 1.1 ?????


    is it the force-ntsc-option and a proc in the modded source ?

    has anybody a tip ?

    seems the loader uses svideo as its output signal during drive init. that's what causes red screen.

    If you're TV is able to accept S-Video over RGB, then try to fiddle with the TVs input settings. Then you also could play NTSC-Games without switching cords or forcing modes.

    wish you good luck.

    I'm able to get a coloured image with my Japanese Wii and the RGB-SCART lead (same as you have, European Version), btw, my TV is a Grundig.

    i changed the scart from ext1 to ext2 on my CRT-TV and the problem is gone with the wind ,
    but there is less sharpness on this input

    i guess your ext2 doesn't support rgb instead it supports svideo and composite. both modes have less quality than rgb has. i would stick with ext1 and rgb and live with the red picture on usb mount.

    maybe someone can take a look at this and implement a proper vidoemode during usb mount. wiipower would be my first choice, if i was looking for someone to fix this.

    that was not the problem. the problem is that the video output during usb mount is svideo. only in the process of detecting and mounting the usb drive the screen turns red. afterwards it's perfect again.
