God Motherfucking Damnit

So apparently, the Virtual Console is useless?

I have three games - one that used to work - that will no longer work because my TV (19" Envision HDTV) gives an "OUT OF FREQUENCY" error when I try to play them (so far, those titles are Baseball Stars 2, Super Mario Bros., and SMB2: Lost Levels). I'm running on component cables, and while I'm sure I could switch the component cables for A/V, that would defeat the purpose of owning $40 component cables in the first place (namely, to play my games in somewhat sharp 480i).

Anyone have any ideas? Between this, and the memory management issues I'm having, this is making me a very unhappy motor vehicle.

EDIT: It should be noted that 1) SMB2 used to work, and 2) These are the only games I know are having problems. I can get out of the issue by hitting the Home button, but then, I have to take it back to the Wii menu.

480 interlaced is SD. -_-

wait....why would you need component cables for those?

Because going over standard A/V on an HDTV makes the signal WORSE.

Also, because component cables allow the Wii to display in 480p, which is why you're having display issues.

Okay. let's see if I got this straight...you're using component cables to get a clean SDTV signal on an HDTV.

Then...why not just play in 480p?

I'm missing something here aren't I? :(
