VideoInterface: Don't crash when running Wii Freeloader

Datel's Wii Freeloaders set m_PictureConfiguration.WPL to 0 for
a while. Not sure if the fix in this commit is a proper fix or
just a hack, since I'm not very familiar with this code.

With this change, it's possible to run a Wii Freeloader if you
are running an old enough version of the Wii Menu, but the
"coloured bars" that Datel reference in their documentation
never show up. The screen just freezes for a few seconds instead.
