    na haven't got one yet. im going to get the HD Box Pro now cause it does aspect ratio scaling. it's cheaper than the x2vga2 as well.

    Just got it! Looks great from initial impressions, very pleased it can output in multiple resolutions instead of the 640x480 the Vdigi cable does. Should make Wii games look a lot crisper on my LCD (the Vdigi signal got blurry where the LCD stretched the image)

    Cool! Does it do some internal scaling that makes the image look better in, say 1680x1050? How's the interlaced signal support (try some PAL 480i/576i (don't think Wii does 576i :S) GC games)?

    I'd love some pics [​IMG]

    Mine shipped the 27th, hope it gets here soon.

    Unfortunately I can not test it just yet as I do not have component cables. I have ordered some so they should be here soon. FYI the HDBOXPRO does not come with any cables except the power adapter (mine was a Chinese PSU), so you need a 5V output normal round socket type power adapter, male VGA cables and component cables.

    Hi there,

    I have a PAL Wii and a VGA Box that's kind of crappy. The image quality is good, but when I'm playing 60Hz or import games on my 24'' LCD (or even my old 17'' CRT), the colors are black and white (it was the same with my GC so I had to play RE4 in b&w, or on someone else's TV).

    So, what I'm trying to find now is a VGA box that lets me play NTSC games as I should be, without sacrificing the colors.

    Do they all make this possible now or only a few ?
    Which seems to be the best buy considering my situation ?

    Thanks to whoever has an answer to these questions.

    Well... Most VGA-only (those with no other input type) monitors do not support 50Hz properly, if at all. Other than that I can't help.

    Really? I got myself a pair of these from DealExtreme. Visibly worse than official Nintendo component cables?

    Before I purchase this I want to make sure it will work on my monitor.

    I have a LG 204WT-SF monitor, but it seems it has only a DVI and D-sub, and no VGA :/ So I want to ask you people how to get this really nice Box also work on my monitor? Do I need something like a DVI -> VGA adapter? If yes, which one should I get?

    Got mine in the mail today ^^ shipped the 27th, so quite fast. I had a quick look in my break and so far I'm pleased. Can't get the remote to work yet, hope it's not broken. 16:9 on 16:10 works fine, although I needed some tries before my screen (HP w2207) accepted the 1680x1050 resolution chosen from the OSD menu.

    576i works great with my VC games, on the fly switching to 4:3 as well (quite rare that it works so fast on my w2207).

    Will post some pics and experiences later (few days maybe).
