Wii Computer Hookup

I hooked my wii up to the computer through my video card's video input and loaded a program called "Dscaler" to show the video. Everything worked fine, until I noticed that there is about a three second video lag that I don't know how to fix. Can you help me please?

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)

WII black screen after power light is on but doesn't do anything. Have to unplug unit to power down. Could it be a bad blue tooth mod?


To clarify, your Wii doesn't cue the start-up screen and does not respond to input (like pressing POWER) after reaching this state. So that means it's probably freezing. Did you port over the data with the normal Wii data systems, or did you use an unlicensed program on your computer or Wii? It's very likely that any unauthorized programs might be too much for the console to handle, or might have viruses intended to freeze up your Wii. That goes for the Bluetooth program you mentioned as well.
The best thing you could do here is remove the SD card, and if you have a way to access the Wii through a computer, restore its basic factory programs and nothing more.
If you can't get to it through a computer, then remove anything connected to the Wii-USB plugins, discs, the SD card, even the batteries in your remote-and try starting it up again. Decreasing the input levels might free the way for the console to start. If you do get it up and running, power up one Wii Remote, and navigate through menus to delete your Wii data-there's a way to do that in Settings. Depending on where you are, you either want to wait for the menu to load, or click to the next option as quickly as possible. Some submenus load at the same time as their parent menu, so you want to get past the parent quickly before it tries to load too much data for your damaged OS to handle. On the flip side, other submenus load only when selected, and so you'd want to wait for the parent to load before clicking so as not to overload the system in that way. It's all guesswork there; without knowing the code, you can't tell which type of submenu it is.
If you can't get past the freezing black screen, call a professional source. Nintendo is the highest quality, but very expensive. I do believe Play-N-Trade does console repair/replacement; there might not be a location nearby, though.
Finally, try not to use unlicensed programs... unless lots people on the internet say the program works. (:

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.

I cant get my games that i have moved from my sd card to my wii system memory to show up on my sd card menu or the wii menu ?


Assuming you correctly downloaded them to your SD card in the first place. You should make sure you are using the right card, that you are inserting it correctly into the Wii. And maybe even try loading it up on your computer or a camera to make sure it is not defective. At least then you can rule out the Wii being the issue.

Hope this helps please clarify anything not stated before if not.

Hooking up Wii with monster cable kit to Onkyo SR875 and Mits 73" HD TV. I cannot get sound through receiver. What am I doing wrong? I can hear the sound through the WiiMote, but no sound through my...


If the Monster cable kit is in fact compatible with the Wii, continue with the following instructions. Otherwise use the Wii connectors.

This is only one connection method for your equipment but the easiest and requires the use of only one additional cable.

Connect the audio and video cables from the Wii directly to your television. Then connect an audio cable from the "variable audio out" or "audio out" from the television to the audio input of your choice on the receiver. Then select that input on the receiver. Then select the input on your TV that you plugged the Wii into. Enjoy.

Hooked up a wii to front av inputs. I have no wii


Make sure the Wii's analog composite video output is enabled. Try resetting the Wii to factory defaults. this will default to enable the composite video output.
You can find the procedure in the Wii manual.

I have the HT-S3100 model, and hooked up my tv, xbox360, and Wii to it. The audio works for all three, but the only video I can get is for the xbox. I am using the component hookup and it is hooked up...


On all tv's there should be independent input for all devices. Xbox 360 ,Wii, and tv. Take a look at input at the back of tv. The Xbox input should coincide audio/video. The same with each device. Then you use the tv's remote to select the input for each device. They should all work independently from each other. Such as component 1 for Xbox, component 2 for Wii, and depending on what type of tv input you use, such as coaxial, RCA, you note and put tv input setting on the device that you are going to use. If you have the audio working on each device, check the video input for each device. Make sure they correspond.

Hooking wii to computer


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.
