I don't know if this helps, but I had the same problem in reverse. Great picture - no audio. I finally unplugged the TV and all devices connected to it (DVD player, cable box, etc.) waited 3 minutes and plug everything in. The audio was restored.
Have you tried using standard RCA AV cables? yellow-red-white - to TV. Or have you tried using an S-Video cable (a 5-pin mini DIN plug) between your DVD player and TV? if your TV has S-Video input, and your player has S-Video output, a cable for this should be easy to obtain and connect. Not expensive either.
Your TV should automatically detect the connection of S-Video (if it has this feature). S-Video is better quality than standard RCA yellow AV cable. (you can leave the existing component video connected)
You can also check your DVD player 'setup' maybe it is incorrect - make sure when using component video (red-green-blue) to set the player's output to progressive (for a TV that supports it) - unless it is already set to this.
If everything in the setup menu checks out OK, go with the cheap and easy S-Video cable suggestion. Radio Shack may sell these.
Your TV has two sets of AV inputs. One on the side and one at the back. The Wii has a 3RCA cable ( Yellow / Red & White ) . Connect these jacks to the corresponding color sockets on the side input of your TV. Select that input on the TV and your Wii sound and picture should come on. For the DVD player you have to get a 5 RCA component cable. This cable will have 5 colored jacks, connect the White & Red to the Audio in of the TV and then connect the Red/Blue/Green jacks to the component video input of the TV.Do the same at the DVD's end also. Setect that source on the TV and you should hear the DVD sound and picture.
Do I understant this correctly? You are using a composite video cable (A/V y,r,w) and connecting it with the component video input (and then telling the TV to use the YPbPr source). You need a component video cable (3 RCA plugs on each end - red, green and blue) and an audio cable (2 RCA plugs - red and white) for the Wii. It wasn't included with the Wii but it does have the component video ports. Otherwise you would need a SCART to composite connector to work with the input. Alternatively, you could get an HDMI cable and connect that between the Wii and the TV (depnding on the age of the Wii).
If I've read this correctly, you have the media box and dvd player sharing the SCART input (EXT1).
Sounds like a faulty cable or a loose connection. Check to make sure everything is connected snugly from your Wii to your television. Also try plugging the cables coming from your Wii into another available connector on your television if you have one available. Otherwise it's most likely the cord that connects the two if your tv displays other systems, such as your cable/satellite or dvd player, correctly.
