On the back of your AVR (audio video receiver) where you connect a DVD, VCR or any other component. Example if there are open component jacks where you would connect a VCR just plug in the Yellow, Red and White cables. Turn your AVR to the source you connected to and turn on the TV. It should then play thru the speakers and be seen on the TV. Treat it just like a DVD player or any input source.

I cant her anything on wii


Can you see the video? If you are able to see the video on your Wii, check your connections going into the TV or Home Theater System. If it's not going directly into the back of the TV, I would suggest unplugging it from whatever else it is going into, then plugging it into the TV to see if you are able to get sound that way.

If you are getting sound when it's plugged directly into the TV, then something is wrong with your external source, but I would need more information to help you with that.
Component Cables should be plugged in as Green / Blue / Red / White / Red, standard A/V Cables should be plugged in to Yellow / White / Red.

I have had my wii for a while and it is black and we hooked it up to our flat screen Vizio and it is only in black and white but then when i hook it up to my older tv it is in color and i cant figure out...


Did you use the Component cables for the new tv? If you did, you need to go into the System Menu of the Wii, and change the output to Component 480p, and that should give you a color picture with a higher resolution. Hope this helps!

You will need to make sure the connection is still setup in the wii system menu here:

You can then redownload the wii and internet channels for free in the wii shop.

How to hook up wii to surround sound


Put all the wires to the tv. Now you need another A\V cable (yellow, red, white) only use red and white from, audio out on tv to audio in on surround system and set it to TV. OR Put the red and white from Wii to surround system and the yellow to the tv. this way you have to use surround to hear it. The other way you can use the tv or both. The first way is ideal if you have an extra cable.

Got picture no sound


You can hook the sound cords via extension cables directly to the input on your theater system. This is how I run my setup.
