Hooking wii to computer

Okay yesterday I spent a whole lot of time hooking my Wii console to my computer monitor. My video card had a video input where I attatched my Wii's video cable. I downloaded a free program called "Dscaler" and finally was able to see the Wii's screen. Although I there is a lag time of about 3 seconds for the wii video to be displayed. Plz. Help me if u can.

Wii's aren't designed to be hooked to a computer monitor, but basically it's gonna boil down to your video card and software. Odds are, you're gonna have a lag no matter what you do when since it has to be processed by the cpu before it can be displayed.

Wii in black and white


Picture Is Black and White or Does Not Appear Situation:
  • The console powers on and shows a black and white image on the television screen
  • The console powers on and there is no image on the television


What to do:
  • Determine whether the Standard AV Cables (packaged with the system) or the Component Cables (sold separately) are being used.

  • AV Cables

    • Ensure the yellow, red, and white cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)

    • Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.

    • If the TV does not have the yellow, red and white inputs, it will most likely have component inputs which allow standard AV cable use. Try these AV hookup steps. (How To)

  • Component Cables

    • Ensure the red, blue and green video cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)

    • Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.


Still Not Resolved:
  • If the television is continues to show a black and white image when powering on the Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

Why cant i get my wii console to work in color


Well it might either be the tv or the av cables that is causing the wii system to be in black grey and white then.

The picture appear black&white. I have HDTV.


I had this problem with a 'universal' console component video cable. Had a B&W Wii screen, and couldn't set the Wii to HDTV.

Spent most of an afternoon switching the Wii between LCD televisions, annoying Samsung tech support (who are a very, very good tech support system, by the way) and so on.

Took back the cable and the guy said, "Did you remember to turn the little TV/HDTV switch here?"

There IS a tiny little switch on these combo cables, right on the common point of the various console connector plugs. I switched it. It worked. All is good again. Hope so for you too.

TV went to black and white when hooking up the wii


You probably don't have something hooked up right or connected all the way. If you are using component video cables, make sure that all of the different plugs are plugged into the matching socket on your TV. Also, make sure you have your TV on the right channel (3 or 4) if that's how you have it setup.
Otherwise, you will want to look at the input settings on your TV and make sure you are receiving the correct input, and if you have your Wii plugged into a VCR instead of directly to your TV, try hooking it up directly to see if it works.
If that doesn't work, try using a different TV - especially if it's a TV you know works in color with a Wii. If it is still in black and white, you might need to take it back to the store and exchange it for a new one.

Blurry Screen


I contacted Nintendo and they have informed me that they had never heard of this problem before. Upon our discussion it appears that it may be a problem with the video input of the television and not a problem with the WII itself. I tried hooking up the WII to another television and did not encounter the problem at all.
It would appear that the tv I was using may be developing an issue with it's video input. I changed to another tv about a month ago and this problem just started happening about 3 days ago. The tv I was using was not a new tv and perhaps it is now having a problem with the signal from the WII.
If it continues with this problem using the rear A/V inputs, I will try hooking the WII up to the front A/V inputs to see if this corrects the problem as well.

Wii Computer Hookup


you need a faster computer to fix this, the delay is caused by the computer coding the incomming signal.. any way why would you want to go via the computer anyway (unless you wish to capture what you are doing (the lag should not matter for this). If you are just trying to put the display of this onto the monitor, there are probably better ways of doing this directly to the monitor.(rather than going through the PC)
