As was said, there is no HDMI cable for the Wii. An HDMI cable would be a waste on the Wii, considering the Wii can't ouput 5.1 sound, and can't output 1080P (those are the main benefits with an HDMI cable).

The highest qaulity cable for the Wii is a component cable, which will allow you to output the Wii in 480p (progressive scan) vs 480i (integrated scan). All HDTV's have component inputs, so this is a non issue. Component cables actually can output 720p/1080i, but the Wii can only output 480p max.

Here is a link to the cable I am taking about. You should be able to get it from somewhere for the $20 range.

There is no cable that will allow you to connect the Wii through an HDMI port. There is no HDMI port on the Wii.

There is a cable to connect through the component video, however. You will need a special component cable specifically for the Wii.

How to connect my Wii consule to a HDMI monitor,my Wii connection cable only has plugs I need a different connection cable


You need what is called a scan converter. It will allow you to input your cables (assuming RCA type) and come out the other side with HDMI.

There are no connections for the red whits and yellow AV cable in the new smart TV can i eliminate this cable and use a USB cable in its place this is for a wii


The usb port in Wii is for input devices (i.e. external HDD, Wii keyboard etc.) and can't use it to output signal going to your TV , its only the AV cable supplied by wii you can use to connect to tv. If the TV has no RCA input (yellow, white & red connections) you can buy AV to HDMI adaptor or AV to VGA adaptor to connect your wii to your new tv model.

Connecting wii to Sony bravia tv


If you have an old V.C.R that has Red, White and Yellow sockets for AV and it still works then plug it into the RF socket tune the V.C.R to your TV and connect your Wii to the Red,White and Yellow R.C.A connections and you should be playing in no time. I have done this myself on a new Samsung TV it will work. If you have no V.C.R and you have HDMI sockets in your TV you can buy an adapter to convert the existing AV port on the Wii to HDMI then simply connect a HDMI cable (if you have 1 if not they are cheap enough off eBay starting at $6.00+AUD or around $20.00AUD Retail) to the Wii and then the TV ensuring that both the TV and the Wii are powered down prior to connecting any cables at the back. The HDMI Adapter for Wii is available on eBay from $5.00 AUD to $24.95AUD depending on the country you purchase it from. If all else fails a second TV with Red, White and Yellow RCA plugs will work but also the most expensive of the fixes. All fixes suggested will work. Good Luck I hope this helps.

My problem is getting a "This signal is not supported message" on an HDMI input into a Pioneer PDPR05G media receiver.


No need to understand - just read the message, It clearly states that the unit will not accept that particular signal because its electronics are not configured to deal with it. And that is it - end of story.

Basically, you cannot force a square peg into a round hole.

I need to connect a console to a Sansum LED TV


You need to fino a cable to connect to it, most new Blu-Rays have what is called HDMI, this is also found on newer Xbox 360 and all PS3, whan it says HDMI, the best thing is to get an HDMI cable (don't pay more than $10) and plugging into it and the TV. There you have all of what you need. If the console does not have an HDMI, you need to look for an specific A/V cable that connects to the TV, it may also be a component cable, in any case, you need to connect each cable to an specific port of a color, the white and red (last 2) represent audio (left and right) and will output stereo audio. If something can't be seen when using HDMI, you will need to use A/V to lower the Definition to 480i then slowly raise the definition to 720p then 1080i

I would like to browse the web on my TV screen...is that possible. I am connected to the Internet with my Wii.


If your TV has HDMI port, just connect the HDMI cable to the TV and enjoy
if not, try to connect via S-Video cable.. if you don't have it, connect the VGA cable and switch the view, if not so it's impossible.

I tried to hook my wii to the new hd led flat screen but its black and white I tried doing the yello cable to green but it doesnt work and all the other inputs dont have ac jacks its just hdmi hookups


The yellow cable is RCA component and it sould not be connected to the Green port. Why not get a HDMi cable to make the hook up easier? Component RGB connection requires a RGB cable along with a stereo audio cable where as HDMI requires just one.

My wii connection is black and white


You are connecting it into the wrong input. The Wii comes with a RCA cables that should go into the Video (composite) input that has yellow, red, and white. The component input will not work with the RCA cable input. Plug your Wii into Video1 and you should get the right colors. There should be another HDMI on the side of your TV, there are inputs located both on the back and side of the TV for your convience.

Connecting a wii system to a sanyo DP26648 tv


It has to do with the type of input - Video2 and 3 are Component video inputs, requiring a 3- wire component video cable (Red,blue,green for video, red/white below for audio). Video 1 is for analog equipment (Yellow for the video, red and white for the audio). Unless your Wii comes with a component video out cable and jacks (same red blue green), you'll have to use video 1 for the Wii, and use Video 2 for the dvd. You'll need a component video (3-wire) cable for your dvd, which should have the jacks for it. You can use the present cable you're using for the dvd, but you'll have to change the connections on the back of the dvd to component video out, and you'll still need another 2-wire cable to connect the audio out on the dvd to the audio in on Video 2 on the tv.

Here's the manual for your tv - look on page 8 for these connections. the Wii will be an analog connnection, the dvd will be a digital connection.
