    Same here. I just purchased a Wii and tried the Auxillary input and got nothing. I have a singel HDMI cable from the receiver to the LCD. If I select the "Aux" as the input, why should I need a another cable from the Will directly to the LCD?

Just a thought, but, how do you have your TV/Monitor hooked up to the Yamaha unit? If your only connection between the receiver the and the TV/Monitor is an HDMI cable, and you are plugging your WII into the front v-aux jack using composite video, the receiver will have no way to send the video signal to the TV/Monitor. The receiver upconverts all composite video and S-video signals to component video signals. This means that if you only have an HDMI connection between the receiver and the TV/Monitor, you will also need to establish a second, component video connection between the receiver and TV/Monitor to handle the upconverted WII video signal. You will probably also need to switch your TV/Monitor to use that input when you are using the WII.

Of course, if you already knew this and have it set up that way, this answer won't help you at all!

How would i be able tp put aux/video on my TV without a remote? All we have are the buttons that are lready on the tv, we can go to menu but we dont know where to go after that. Please help, we are trying...


Some Tv's will allow you to simply channel change down for example.. 3,2,1, then the input/or aux channels show up as comp, HDMI,AUX. If you have tried this and it doesnt work and there is no button on the tv that says source/input or aux you may be able to change it in menu. Look for an option in the menu that says source. Unfortanatly not many tvs have this option.

Wii help


Hello :




1:Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console.
2:

Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the TV. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

Yellow = Video Input
White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
Red = Audio Input Right

3:Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, you must find the Input Select for your TV to view the game (it is likely not going to be seen on Channel 3 or 4). Typically this is found by pressing the TV/Video button on the Television's front panel or remote control. If you have more than one input channel, keep pressing TV/Video until you see the display from the Wii.
If you do not have a TV/Video button, then the input could be labeled something different. Some other common input selects to look for on the TV or remote are: Input, Input Select, EXT, AUX, or a channel such as 00 or 99.

I hope this will help .

I dont know how to connect the wii to my rx-465 receiver.


The Wii AV cable should have a red/white pair of Audio Output jacks on it.
Check out pg. 8 of the Wii manual: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/downloads/WiiOpMn_setup.pdf
Connect the red/white RCA plugs from the AV cable to a line level audio input on your receiver. If you use AUX IN, then select AUX IN on the INPUT selector switch. You should then hear the sound from the Wii through your receiver/home theater system.

Need a code for my Comcast Universal Remote


30176 is the code you need . Press Aux and then hold setup until Aux lights up. Enter code. If you want the remote to control the receiver all the time, press Aux and then hold setup until Aux lights up. Enter 993 then press Aux. Aux will flash, now press Cbl and Aux should light up when you use the volume.

No picture from wii


The RX-V800 switches the various video signal types separately.
Since you are feeding S-Video to the TV the composite (yellow) input from your Wii is not going anywhere.
If you cant get S-Video output from the Wii then I'd suggest a simple Composite to S-video adaptor plug ($5 say). It worked for me with a Game Cube.

Universal remote works for basics but won't change input


Rich,

good day , what button can you see infront of your TV screen?

Not familiar with this model but if you'll manage to locate a button marked as "TV/AV" or "AV" press this button until it the display switch to A/V mode (audio/video). Or if this is a really old model, from Tuner mode or channel model. set the channel station to 1 then press the " - channel " button and see if it will change from tuner mode to A/V mode

cheers,
mark
