Our Wii is hooked up through our VCR, so once I get the freestep started, I can just turn off the VCR and watch tv. How ever you have it hooked up, as long as you don't turn the Wii off while you're doing it, the program will continue to run. I just unlocked a free run and it works the same way.
"Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities crept in - forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it well and serenely, and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old mistakes and nonsense." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

When you use your Wii instead of the TV, do you often change the TV to something like "Component X" or "Channel Y" or "Video Z"? This is, of course, assuming that the same TV your Wii is hooked into is also hooked into a cable box of some sort. It's sort of like switching from your TV to your DVD player when you want to watch something.
When you load up Free Step, when it tells you to start, you can take moment to switch the TV from the Wii to your Cable channels, and then start by using the Wii-mote's rhythm to guide you. The up and down keys change the pace, and the + and - keys change the voice/sound of the beat.
Now, not all TVs/systems are created equal, but I hope I've given you the information you need to know. Good luck!
