@Matt_Barber Hi I'm not talking about a difference in sharpness, size of pixels. I'm talking letterboxing, black lines at the top and bottom of the screen and the edges of the image visually shake. The 1080p signal a PAL Wii U produces for Tony Hawks Downhill Jam just doesn't look like it's compatible with my Samsung TV.

I'm wondering if it's trying upscale a 576i/p signal, and the Samsung TV is struggling to understand the image it's being sent. When I switch the Wii U to 480p it looks normal with no letterboxing.

@Wargoose That sounds very odd and is probably something to do with that particular game.

I can't say I've ever tried it myself, but I've run lots of PAL Wii games at 1080p on the Wii U - also on a Samsung TV although probably not the same model as there are a lot of them - and never encountered anything similar.
