– If I ever decide to get a GameCube it has to be either a US or Japan release, as the PAL version has no digital out port
– PAL Wii’s cannot output in NTSC even if softmodded (but does that matter if I’m running a NTSC game through component+OSSC?)
– The GameCube official component cable is marginally better than an official Wii component cable to the point that there isn’t a real difference while playing
This is not really issue of cable quality, but the quality of digital to analog conversion.
-Wii-Dual outputs 640×480 inside a 720×480 window
Not true, but depends what you mean. You can say it scales whatever the format of framebuffer to 720×480.
