I cant hook it up to the tv

Run a three color AV cord (red, white, yellow) from the output of your surround sound receiver to the "DVD" input on your TV. The yellow is for video and the red and white are for audio so make sure you plug the tips into the same color ports. Now look at where you put the 3 color cord (AV cord) into the TV, which "input" did you use? Video 1 or Video 2 more than likely. Now turn your TV on and in the menu settings select the same video input you hooked the AV cords into on the back of your TV. This will get your theater set up. The remote is slow to process after you push buttons so give the remote a few seconds to respond.

The Wii turns on and will take a disk but nothing shows up on the tv screen.

Make sure that the cord from the console is secure in the Wii and the three colors are plugged into the T.V. in the same color plugs. There is a Yellow for picture, white and red for stereo sound. You probably need to access the TV menu and change the "input" to whatever your Wii is plugged into. For example "A/V 1" or aux.

Beside the 3 colour wire what else is needed to plug into the tv?

If the three color wire your talking about is the Standard Definition cord that comes with the system out-of-box, then nothing. The RCA cord (three color cord) is enough to hook your PS3 up to almost all T.V.s. You would have to do a bit of searching to find a T.V. so old it didn't have RCA jacks on it, so you have little to worry about. The only other cords you need should also have come with your system when you bought it. The power cord, for the PS3 itself, and the USB cord, for charging your controller.

Now if you have a more modern T.V. with HDMI ports, you can go out and buy an HDMI cord to use. This isn't necessary though, HDMI just gives a higher resolution. You'd have a clearer picture, as well as a slightly wider view, but this unnecessary. It's a nice upgrade, but you don't need it.

Have fun with your PS3, and good luck with your gaming!

Im trying to play ps3 using a CRT tv, ive bought the lead from maplin but no picture. there is sound but no pic. any ideas?

Mostlikely you are not on the correct channel. sometimes if you not on the correct channel you will be nothing, change to channel 3 or 4if you are going coaxial, if you are going RCA cord which is the color coded three cords, plug then in the correct plugins, and switch your video settings to LINE IN, VIDEO IN, or VIDEO if you TV has this.
