I have a Pal Wii with modchip. I bought it more then a year ago and I don't know what the chip is (it was premodded and I was too excited to ask ) Now I am in US and I bought a new HDTV. But it turned out US HDTV do not support Pal (our HDTVs worked with both Pal and NTSC). It even looks like my Wii has some "wrong" ("Pal"?) 480p - with pretty ugly artifacts. I suspect it still does 50 frames/s... I would like to try and change the region. Questions are: 1. How risky is this operation? 2. Will I have any problems because of modchip (i.e. does the modchip care about the region?) 3. Is Pal and NTSC Wii hardware the same or they have different output circuits and I will still have to use 480i? 4. Is it really possible that there is "Pal" and "NTSC" 480p?
