Question about Denon AVR-2802

1 Answer

Trying to add Wii, but no video only sound.

Is it possible to use component (red blue green) as well as the old yellow, red & white? The problem is the red, blue green inputs are all full... I have blueray, hi-def cable box and trying to run the Wii through there too so I can stream netflix. I get ONLY sound on the "Wii" input. I have tried running both wire types to the tv as well. HELP! Thanks.

The manual says you can get an optional Component Video cable (RVL-011) for the Wii. There is apparently one unused Component Input on theDenon where you could connect it. You would still have to use the Red/White analog audio.

The Yellow is for Composite Video only. It's lower quality and not compatible with Component Video (3-wire).

In the short term, why don't you just run the Wii's combined Composite video / analog audio cable to the provided Composite Inputs labeled DVD, VDP, TV/DBS, VCR-1 or VCR-2 on the Denon?

It would not be necessary to have BOTH Composite and Component video from any device, much less the Wii.

Ponder this, why do you need to run the video from anything to the Denon at all if your TV has mutliple video inputs? TV's specialize in video, theDenon specializes in audio. You can always extend the Red/White audio cables to reach the Denon.

Trying to hook up a dvd and wii with direct tv and can"t get sound out of wii! HELP Can you show me where to plug cords in?


Your TV has two sets of AV inputs. One on the side and one at the back. The Wii has a 3RCA cable ( Yellow / Red & White ) . Connect these jacks to the corresponding color sockets on the side input of your TV. Select that input on the TV and your Wii sound and picture should come on.
For the DVD player you have to get a 5 RCA component cable. This cable will have 5 colored jacks, connect the White & Red to the Audio in of the TV and then connect the Red/Blue/Green jacks to the component video input of the TV.Do the same at the DVD's end also. Setect that source on the TV and you should hear the DVD sound and picture.bobhifi_31.jpg

Conecting Wii to a Phillips lcd tv. rwy cords. but the picture is in black & white ?? i have sound. tried different connections eg: red to green conections & the only one that works is still black...


it sounds like you may be trying to plug a standard composit video cable (yellow) into a component video input (red, green, and blue)
these are actually two different connections. Most LCD tv's will have both options (sometimes there in weird different spots on the tv tho) if you don't have a standard RGB (red, white, and yellow composite video input) then you may need to purchase a component cable either at a local store or you can get one for $5 on Ebay
hope it helps!

I,ve connected my wii to the led tv using a wiii component cable(5 leads) but have used only 3 of them red green & blue 1,s leaving a red & white 1 left i have good picture but no sound help please


your cable is split into two different connections for your tv... the red green and blue cables are for HD only. They are their own little set. the yellow cable is your video cable for normal tv's. the red and white cables are sound cables, also for normal tv's. I would unplug the red, green, and blue cables, and use the yellow, red (right sound), and white (left sound).

Good luck!

No colour


Hi, Definitely a TV issue for me. Changed Wii to another input on TV and resolved situation. Need now to check how to get my TV to recognize colour on AV2 & 3 because I prefer to keep DVD input as AV1!

I had to use the (RCA) video inputs and not the component inputs. These are the ones made for video games. If you want to use the component input (Component cables are Red,White Red, Green, Blue). If you don't have any, you should be able to purchase them at your local electronics store like Radio Shack or Best Buy. Hope this helps, read below:

TV (This is your cable connection or TV; coax)
Component 1 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
Component 2 (Must use component cables for this input/output; Red and White for audio, Red, Blue, Green for Video)
HDMI 1 (HDMI Cable)
HDMI 2 (HDMI Cable)
Video 1 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)
Video 2 (Must Use RCA cables, or RCA jacks; Red and White for Audio, Yellow for Video)

No sound on tv and black & white


The red, blue, and green are the component cable hookups. What you have w/ red, white, and yellow is called composite or on most TV's (AV) See if the TV has a side port for like a camcorder, etc. It will not work by hooking into the red/blue/green as they are different signals.

It is possible that your yellow jack may be separate from the red/white audio left/right jacks.

No sound from the Wii.


Assuming you are using the standard Wii cable which has a red, white and yellow connector, you should connect them to the yellow, red and white connectors on the back. They should be together. The red, green and blue that are bundled togehter are component inputs for hd.

The wires from the wii to hook into my samsung t.v. do not match is there an alternative wire configuration that I might be able to obtain?


The cables that come with the Wii are composite video cables with the standard red, yellow and white cables. You might be trying to plug them into the component video input, which has red, blue, and green.

Check your TV to see if you have any red, yellow, white inputs. Use that input if you are using the cables that same with the console.

Alternatively, you can buy component video cables for the Wii. This will be for the red, blue and green input. This will provide you with higher definition (480p vs. 480i) and a slightly sharper picture.

Good luck.
