Just wondering... on the PAL Wii there were loads of problems getting some (not all) VC games running on 480p 60hz mode via component cables. So much so, that I ended up sticking with 576i 50hz mode on my Wii with composite cables.

How well do VC games on the PAL Wii U display via the HDMI cables? Do all games display correctly, or are there still problems with some games?

I tried some PAL VC NES games and there were no problems When using hdmi cable (still lots more to test). Metroid and Kirby look just fine. However, I believe quality may vary between the different types of TV as I have a LCD TV and they tend to handle SD Quality picture better than plasma or LED.

In fact games like the Japanese Super Mario Bros 2 (lost levels to the rest of the world) actually looked better, but that is a 60hz game.

You do realise that an "LED TV" is just an LCD TV with a better backlight right?

Yeah, I use a LED monitor as my computer monitor, black colours are much better than some LCD, but I can't plug certain consoles into to that. I still have consoles that only plug in by RF/Antenna, my old Atari 7800 looks great on my LCD.

@NES_64 Thanks for the heads up. I take it you didn't need to do that daft "Z+A+2" trick that apparently you had to do on the Wii with component cables?

I'd be interested to know if any of the games marked "(NO)" in the following list (i.e. ones that WEREN'T component cable compatible on the Wii) work with the Wii U via HDMI?

I need to redownload a few games, as all the Master System are labeled 'no,' so I till need to give those a try. However, Tennis is on that list labeled as a 'No' and is working fine with some improvement in the picture. As. Normal though I need to set the TV to 4:3 for the current picture size.

Thanks! That's reassuring. I have to toggle between 4:3 and 16:9 modes on the Wii when playing VC games anyway, so that's no big problem for me.
