Wii2HDMI video is extremely dark. Any fix?

I recently bought this for use with an Elgato, and when hooked up to it, the sound is very glitchy and the picture is extremely dark. To make sure it wasn't a problem on the Elgato, I tried my Switch, which worked just fine.

I took the Wii2HDMI to the actual TV, and while the sound is fine now, the picture is still way too dark to be usable.

Am I doing something wrong, or is the product defective?

    First, make sure you've set the Wii to use 480p output instead of 480i (the "EDTV or HDTV" option instead of "Standard TV") . Second, you should make sure your TV and capture card support 480p over HDMI; a lot of TVs don't, and the Wii2HDMI isn't an upscaler.
