    Interesting article and a pretty good read. Slightly disappointing Wii backwards compatibility isn't all there.​

    Probably going to only play games that support 480p unless this gets fixed. Dropping to 50Hz is unacceptable. It's not an N64.

    Glad I'm using HDMI as well. The fact you can only have 50Hz and interlacing through component is a joke.

    Does the Wii U contains the Wii GPU? (Hollywood) if not (using the new ATI GPU which may be backward compatible) then graphical issue may happen.
