Better off with some component cables
Reviewed in the United States on April 17, 2020
Just received mine and went to plug it in. I first thought it wasn't working at all, but after some trial and error with various HDMI cables, it seems that some cables require quite a push to get them to engage enough. I was excited to see it works! I then noticed the rolling bars on the screen and lower sound quality mentioned by some others. I went back to my component cables and confirmed that the issue is specific to this device, not the Wii or my TV. That's too bad, because I was excited to have my 480 device updated to 720 or 1080, even if it is just upscaling. I will be returning this, as it doesn't work even as well as the older tech available (component cables). I specifically noticed that during startup when you push A and the Wii menu first loads, a few notes make it seem like my TV speakers are blown because there's a buzzing sound along with the notes. Switching back to component cables immediately cleared the issue. No need for further testing in my book.
