How to connect a Nintendo Wii Audio Video ED Component Cable ?

The cable is not labeled/no instructions..How do I connect it to my HD TV? This cable has 5 connection points:
1) Solid White
2) White/Large red band
3) White/small green band
4) White/small blue band
5) White/small red band

Could someone tell me what are the connection port designations for these male connections for the WII cable?

I hooked up my wii on av1 with a component cable with audio on audio 1 and i have sound but no picture.


If I am reading this right, you are only hooking up one cable for audio. There is another cable needed for video. This jack is normally color coded yellow and labeled video out/in. You can use your audio cable to try this and then you will picture but no audio.

It's staying on 480i sd why not 1080i


There's only one way to get that TV to switch from 480i (which is an SD or Standard Definition signal) - that's to provide it with an ED or HD resolution signal (a 480P signal is often called ED or Enhanced Definition while 720P, 1080i and 1080P signals are called HD or High Definition).

The old standard yellow composite video cable.

You will not get ED or HD signals through the old composite RCA phono jacks (usually yellow in color), either. You'll need to use an RGB (red, green and blue) component video cable, HDMI cable, DVI, or other type supported by both your TV and the video source (CATV box, Blu Ray disc player, Satellite converter, etc.). More on this, later.

RGB cable.

An HDMI cable - this provides Digital audio signals, too.
.
steve_con_17.jpg
A DVI cable.
.
First, you'll need a source capable of sending ED or HD signals. This can be a progressive scan DVD, Blu Ray player, HD Cable or Satellite converter, or a simple TV antenna. Not all DVD players are capable of the 480P progressive scan output - it must be labeled as such. The DVD movies are not labeled progressive scan as they all will play back at 480P if played in a DVD player capable of progressive scan, otherwise they play at 480i. A stand alone Blu Ray player or one in the Sony PlayStation 3, the older HD-DVD in the Xbox360, (it is important to note that the Nintendo Wii can output either 480i or 480P signals only when connected with their special component video cable), "set top boxes provided when you choose HD service from your local cable provider or satellite TV provider are the main sources for signals better than 480i. As mentioned above, the old standard yellow video jack is not capable of supporting signals better than 480i. You must use the HD jacks and cables between to get these signals into your TV.

The Wii 480P cable assembly - includes stereo audio, too.


Lastly, if your TV has an ATSC tuner (it is not uncommon for it to have an NTSC tuner and CATV tuners as well), you can input a UHF antenna directly into the the antenna terminals on the TV. Broadcasters in most areas have been moved into UHF bands - but some areas have one or two that operate in the VHF bands still. Check antenna web for information and help selecting antennas and broadcasters in your area. The nice thing about the antenna method is that no other cables, converter boxes, etc are needed to enjoy HD signals - plus - they're free!

Just remember you need a source capable of ED or HD signals and a way to get those signals to your TV. The yellow composite cable is from days ago and only passes 480i signals.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please take a moment to rate my reply - thanks!

How do I hook up a nintendo wii to 604 via component wires.


There are several ways to do this. Here are the two most common.

The best results will be provided by connecting the component cables directly to your TV, including the audio cables of course, and then connect a separate pair of cables from the TV "audio variable out" to the audio in on the receiver.

However, if you do not have that option then connect via component to your 604 to inputs on the panel labeled "component video in." Then, connect from the monitor out section of the 604 via component to your splitter, cable box etc.
But again...the BEST option is to connect directly to the television as that method provides the least amount of signal loss and you only need one additional set of cables for audio to connect from the TV to the receiver instead of an additional set of component cables which are often more costly.

Nintendo Wii AV Cables not work


It could be a problem inside the Wii where it only outputs a signal through HD. Have you tried a different TV using the original cables? If the problem persists I would recommend calling Nintendo.
