Default Faking SCART pin-8

I have a Nintendo Wii which does not drive the pin-8 select pin on a SCART.
It's otherwise a standard RGB wired cable. Is there any simple way to
fake/drive pin-8 using a SCART socket/plug plus a few components?

Paul DS.

Strange, yesterday my TV to decoder via scart cable all of a sudden made the TV image jump to widescreen and the 2 black 15 cm belts at both sides of the screen dissapeared. This morning it's back to a squarish screen.
What does that mean? A bad connection in the TV on the SCART pin 8? I've changed 2 scart cables now. Can't be those. Would it be at the TV side or the decoder side? So I plug the scart in the TV resp. decoder and see if at the other end of the scart cable I can measure if there is a tension on the 8 pin-Pin 14? It should be the TV that sends that signal to the decoder it can handle widescreen, isn't it?
