My son selected interlaced video when he started playing Zelda Wind Waker (GameCube game) on the Wii. Now it doesn't prompt us to switch back.

Does this make a difference on the Wii since I set it to progressive in the Wii setup already? Is there a way to switch Wind Waker back?

To re-enable the menu, hold down B on the GameCube controller when starting the game. This should work for all GameCube titles supporting progressive scan.

The Wii settings will not be used, since not all games support progressive scan - hence, it cannot default to this.

Follow-up question; Can you set progressive scan as the default? Whenever I start up a Gamecube game on the Wii it asks if I want to use PS no matter how many times I've told it to do so on previous plays. You'd think most games would save this info. –  KeithS Nov 26 '12 at 20:11
@KeithS: The only way would be if the game could save it, and if it doesn't do that by default, then I would expect that you are out of luck, since I'm not aware of any game that had a secondary interface for that - but you could check the manual, just in case. –  Michael Madsen Nov 26 '12 at 21:25
