I have recently bought the hd componet cables for my wii and when i play there is a black box around the game. When i was using the regular cables the box was not there. I can not figure out how to get rid of it. Any suggestions
Sounds like the screen size on the tv and wii needs to be adjusted. look in the wii settings to adjust that and also see if there is a output resolution that you can change to tell the wii that you're using component. component uses 480i-1080i resolution so there shouldn't be much that you have to change.

i think your problem is with cabling your surround sound is audio only and you wii is video and audio. i would hook up wii first and get it working first. dont plug the surround into the yellow jack on your audio video switch good luck
No problem! Your Wii changed aspect and settings, like your computer adapts to 'unknown" monitor. Just unplug Wii, reset your TV set and you should be alright. Try to use identical signal cables for connecting "cable" and Wii. hope, you are not using RF connector to watch you cable! You will not be able to watch in HD! May be that's your only issue? connect both: box and Wii via 'component" or HDMI inputs. I can't account for Wii, I only repair those, not playing. But, as I recall, it has only "component" or "composite" outputs. Your "box" might have different ones. refer to your owners manuals, just in case! good luck, Alex.
I had the same problem. First, I got the comp cables and set resolution to 420p\16:9 aspect. Didn't fix it. then I went into the advanced menu and turned off noise reduction and DCM (digital clear motion).
After more checking around I found out this is not an uncommon problem with the wii. Apparently there is a design flaw that causes the graphics card to overheat, which creates various types of distortion. It may have something to do with using wiiconnect24. I am sending my wii back to nintendo for repairs.
Dear friend try to change your cables if you are using regular A/V cables, you know the white/red/yellow, use a S-video cable and or maybe try to change the Video Input settings in your TV by going in the setup menu and look for the settings that will suit your console the best, most TVs comes with adjustable Video settings that ranges from Normal, Theater or Cinema, Video Game etc. pick the one that works with your systems. If none of this works try to contact the place you bought the TV and ask them for warranty repair or exchange. good luck!
The best way is to contact your service provider and ask them to trouble shoot guide you, there should be a way to reset or diagnose the receiver or if you prefer go back to the place you bought it and ask for a replacement, You should still have the manufacturer's warranty, check that as well.
