Question about Denon AVR-987 Receiver
I have two video game consoles, and Xbox and Wii. I am unable to get both of them to work when connected to the component video inputs. I have the xbox working and that connected to Component Video 2 and set up under V Aux. However when I try to connect the Wii to component video and set it up on and video, VDP, DBS etc. it won't get a signal but if I move it to V Aux it gets a signal. I want have both consoles connect to the receiver through component video but so far have been unsuccessfull in any attempt to make that happen. I've also tried setting the Video conversion to ON and Off with no success. I've went through the manual and can seem to find any other explanation for this issue. Help!

Well, as far as I can tell, the WII does work, BUT...is it possible that your choice of INPUTS on the Denon unit may only process 720 or 1080 resolutions and not 480P which is the LIKELY output of Wii ! Can you swap your Xbox to the intended input on your Denon and see if you can set it up with that? If so, that's your problem. IF NOT, then dig into the Video Setup on the DENON a little deeper. We know for a fact the Wii does work correctly, we just need to know if Denon made ALL video Inputs capable of ALL Resolutions

Welcome to fixya
I have a solution for this
PLEASE follow these same procedures to connect your xbox
The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you to connect the console to most TVs or VRCs. First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have colored holes label "Input". Though most TVs have them, almost all VCRs do as well. If you are unable to find a set of yellow, red, and white AV inputs on the back of your TV, try looking on the sides, top, and bottom of the TV. Look for any hidden panels or doors as well. Connecting to a Television Audio/Video (AV) inputs are typically located on the back of the TV, but occassionally are on the sides, top, or bottom. Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN. Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT. Don't see these inputs on your TV? Click here. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console Insert the DC plug on the Wii AC Adapter cord into the DC Input connector on the back of the Wii console. Insert the AC plug into a 120V AC wall outlet CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, match the wide blade of the plug to the wide slot and insert fully into the outlet. Plug the transformer into the wall outlet. The Sensor Bar can be placed either above or below your TV screen. Decide which option best fits you and click the image below for additional set up help, including mounting the Sensor Bar and proper alignment.
