Can i send video from Nintendo Wii through my home theater to my projector?

I have a projector that gets one video out cable from the home theater system. I also use the projector to play nintendo wii and im tired of constantly switiching the video cable that is plugged into the projector from the wii video cable to the video out cable from the home theater system. is there a way i can plug the video out cable from the wii into the home theater somewhere and have it send the wii video through the video out cable of the home theater i already have going to the projector? (sorry if this is confusing).

A few things to consider; what type of connection is your Wii using? Composite, component, s-video, coax? Most home theater setups are made to route multiple video signals, usually of the Composite (RCA Red Yellow White) variety, and should be clearly labeled Video In. If it doesn't have extra inputs, you might want to consider buying a media switchbox- A switch like the one linked above allows you to hook multiple audio and video sources into it and easily switch between them by pressing a button on the front.

I want to connect my Philips HTS3357 Home Cinema System to my Panasonic PT-AE900E LCD Projector, How do I go about putting it altogether so it works with my xbox360/PS3

Generally speaking, if your Home Cinema system is able to pass-thru video as well as audio, you'll want to take the HDMI cable from the XBOX video out, into the Home Cinema system's input (any HDMI input should be fine), and then run the HDMI video out to your projector. Any other devices you want to be able to project as well (DVD/BluRay, PC, Cable, Satellite, etc.) would also be plugged into the Home Cinema system as "in" devices, like the XBOX.

When you want to display one of those devices, you would select that "in" port's input name in the Home Cinema system (for example, if the XBOX is connected to the HDMI in that is labeled "aux", you will switch the cinema system to Aux Input, and the projector should immediately begin getting the signal from the theatre system. To switch to another device, you simply change the Input channel on the Home Cinema.

The audio also, providing the device (the XBOX) can carry it on the HDMI cable, will also be delivered to the Home Cinema. Some devices cannot carry sound on HDMI (though many can). For those, you will need to run an HDMI cable for the video, and also an optical cable or other type of audio-only cable, for its audio. You do not need to run an audio cable to the projector though, as the projector is only for video. The Home Cinema will take care of the sound itself.

Just got Panasonic Home Theater and using Digital Audio cable along with HDMI cable. Cables are coneccted and when I do a speaker test all work fine. When I play my Wii the sound is coming out the Tv not...

What kind of TV do you have?
I have found one of the easiest ways to connect surround system is to connect all your accessories (ie. Wii, Cable Box, VCR, etc) to the TV.

Next find the AUDIO OUT on the TV and connect this to the TV or AUX input on the home theater.

Tune the Home theater to the Input that you connected the TV to. This should play the audio through the home theater for any input you tune the TV to.

Note: make sure to turn the TV volume all the way down otherwise there will be some distortion due to the delay between the TV and the home theater.

Good Luck,

How do you connect the component video out to a projector with a component RGB video in. i have the adaptor that works with my other unit but not with Samsung HTC550

The HTT550 has Component Video out on three cables and they are color-coded red, green and blue but they are NOT RGB in the video sense.

What model projector are we talking about?

Cant see wii picture, it is connected through my vcr

You don't say how what the VCR make/model or your TV and its capabilities. The video pass-through of your VCR would be described in its manual. I'd skip past the VCR if it was my Wii.

Here are the relevant manuals for what we know...

The Curtis doesn't haved a composite video in so I thin the solution would be to run theWii Video to the TV's Composite Video In (usually just marjed "video"), and the Wii Audio to the Curtis Aux In 1 or 2. Obviously, one of these connection will require the cable t obe extended to reach two different destinations.

Page 8 in the Wii manual shows the AV cable. It requires a composite video input (the Yellow tip).

Page 12 shows its connection to any standard AV device. That would be the TV or the VCR for Video, as the Curtis apparently doesn't have a composite video input, and the audio could go to the Curtis, the TV, or both using a couple Y-adapter to share the audio. That way you could use the Wii with the TV only or with the audio from the Curtis.

Or you could just run the supplied Wii Audio to the Curtis and get a single RCA cable extender with a Female on one end and a Male on the other to reach the Video to the TV or VCR.

The following is 12' long, for example...

How do i connect a nintento wii to my sony home theatre system model htsf 470?

Hi beejaysaunde,

To connect your Wii to the htsf 470:

1. Connect your Wii to your TV.
2. Use a separate audio cable (red/white) and connect from your TV to your htsf 470.
3. Choose the correct selection on the htsf 470.

This setup will have your Wii's video go directly to your TV and the Wii's audio to be sent to the stsf470.

I hope this helps.

Multiple Video Sources hooked to RT2600, but only DVD shows

I own the RCA RT2600 Home Theater System. I have never set it up, it has never been used. I have someone who wants to buy just the receiver and nothing else. I am wondering what you paid for just the receiver? I don't want to break up the system but I need money right now. I am open to suggestions as to what to do and how much to sell them for.

Video inputs

I had the same problem until I switched my player-to-TV connection from S-Video to Composite.  Then it worked just fine.  Now I have player-to-TV as Composite, and Wii-to-player as Composite connected to Aux1.
