No; the RT2X is limited to 15kHz sources; so only 240p/288p/480i/576i.

You would need to use 480i on your Wii. If you play Virtual Console games, you’d want it set to 480i anyway for the games that output in 240p, because, as I understand it, the Wii won’t output in 240p when it’s set to 480p output.

If you really need 480p support for just your Wii, and proper 240p isn’t an absolute must-have, you could very well get away with a cheap YPbPr component to HDMI adapter. If you need support for 240p through 1080p, go ahead and get an OSSC or a Framemeister.
