Q. My image is very pixelated when using HDMI
A. If your image is coming through over pixelated when using progressive scan mode over HDMI or otherwise it is likely an issue with "Enhanced DVI Mode". For clarification, "Enhanced DVI Mode" is a mode that uses interpolated digital video and audio via the Digital AV connector. While most displays can utilize this signal without issues, some displays are not compatible with this type of signal resulting in an overpixelated image.
If you are experiencing this simply turn off "Enhanced DVI Mode" to remedy the picture, however this will remove the audio signal via HDMI. Instead you can pull audio from the 3.5mm jack or by utilizing the red and white auxiliary cables via the wii component port.
Q. My image is displaying in the wrong colors when using my receiver

To remedy be sure to disable any "Video Conversion Option" that your receiver is likely using.
