    Getting the retro stuff up and going, for far the retrotink seems to be perfect for my needs, I know 480p over hdmi is handeled well by my tv. Its got composite in for my nes, svideo for my n64, and component for my snes via the hd retrovisoin cables. All that im not sure about is my wii, used for wii and gamecube games, my tv doesnt have component input just hdmi, so if the retrotink can just let 48p component pass through to the hdmi i’ll be set, otherwise i may have to turn to the ossc or something.

    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.
