Question about Nintendo Wii Console
The first step is to connect the Wii to the LCD TV : You will notice that the Wii comes standard with an AV cable. If you wish to connect the Wii to the LCD TV using this cable, the steps are very straightforward. Simply insert the multi-out plug, which is the flat end with a single connector, into the "AV Multi Out" port on the Wii game console. The other end of the AV cable has three plugs: a yellow video connector; a white left audio connector; and a red right audio connector. Most LCD TVs offer several AV ports, on the back, side or front of the television. Find three AV ports and plug the yellow connector into the yellow port, the white connector into the white port and the red plug into the red port.
Splitters and HDMI Adapters
However, you might only have one set of AV ports on your LCD TV. Perhaps this is already in use by a different game console or another device, such as your DVD player. If you want to leave the existing device connected to the LCD TV but would like to also connect the Wii console, you have a couple of different options. One is to purchase an AV composite video splitter, sometimes called AV distribution amps. This adapter may allow you to connect the Wii along with other devices, even if there is only one set of AV jacks on your LCD TV.
LCD TVs typically have HDMI ports, which are used to connect other high definition devices to the television. While Wii games are not yet high definition, you may be able to use this port to connect the Wii to the LCD TV. This connection would require the use of an HDMI to AV adapter, such as a Component AV to HDMI converter. This device allows you to connect AV sources, such as the Wii to HDMI displays, such as an LCD TV. There are a couple of caveats to consider regarding this solution, though. First, it is important to note that Nintendo does not support this type of connection. While some users have successfully used this type of connection, you might experience poor quality audio or video, or it might not work at all. Second, you should consider the cost. This type of converter sells for around $200. It might be easier and more affordable to unplug another connected device from the LCD TV and plugging the Wii in when you want to play.
