The Wii doesn't support HD, no matter what people say. At the most it can support 480p, which you can buy component cables (RBG). If you want it HD, you'd have to connect a computer (or something) which has the iso in it.

I just bought a toshiba 50M2U 50' series TV. I also bought a audio/video switch to connect my bose 3,21, surround sound sytem which still uses the red, blue, green cables and I have a wii system w


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

I am streaming netflix from my Nintendo Wii to TV. Is there an after market HDMI cable that I can run from Wii to Denon Stereo to get sound through receiver?


Hello, although there are not official wii to HDMI output cables, there are in fact some cables that are provided by third party handlers that will work.

For instance THIS product is a simple little converter which you put into your wii output and connect a regular HDMI cable.

KEEP IN MIND: This isn't a HDMI cable, you need to have a HDMI cable or buy one to use it with this product.

Trying to hook up WII game, have new led samsung, with blue ray and sound system, doesn't seem to be enough connections for rca cord


That's because there's only one. You shouldn't be using the RCA (Composite) connections on your TV for anything other than what you have to( i.e., the Wii) or else there was no point in purchasing it to begin with. You need an HDMI cable for your Blu-Ray player, an HDMI cable for your Cable Box and I don't know what kind of receiver you have so I can't comment on that but in less it's more than decade old it must at least have the ability to to do digital optical or coaxial (perhaps it's time to upgrade to a fancy 7.1 system with HDMI?). As far as your video sources are concerned, if you use RCA (Composite) cables or COAXIAL (thick cable from the cable box) you will be getting a standard definition picture on your 1080p 240Hz Samsung LED HDTV. Don't buy your HDMI cables in a store as they'll charge you between $20 and $100 for them. Get them at Monoprice.com by clicking here for $2 - $3. There is no difference in quality between HDMI cables despite the lie that Monster Cable has perpetuated.
As far as the Wii is concerned, there is a Component cable available for it that will improve your picture dramatically over the RCA (Composite) cables (although not in HD because the Wii is an SD system). Nintendo sells it for $20 but of course, you can get at Monoprice for $3, here. I have this and it works great.
Good luck!

We need to connect a wii and a dvd player up to our 32 in Emerson? Unsure of which jacks to use?


First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv


Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.


Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.


To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.


When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"


When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."

I have a mitsubsishi 65 inch DLP hdtv and i need to hook my dvd player and wii game to this tv and i cant figure this out please help>>>>>me :_)


Your TV should have atleast two slots allocated for game systems or DVD players. If not, then you can always use an HDMI cord for the DVD player and use the red, white and yellow connecters for the Wii.

My Wii was connected to a normal-old TV and was in black and white. Okay, so I then tried to see if connecting it as a HDTV version would work (in the settings)....well, then everything turned into...


What happened when you selected HDTV is that you activated the output to the HDMI output. This turned off the regular connection. Press the power and reset button simultaneously when turning on the unit to return it to the factory default settings. Otherwise, you'll have to connect it to a HDTV with the optional cable to connect it (you'll have to purchase that as well) to go in and change the settings back.

How do I hook my wii up to my magnavox 32mf338b HDTV?


If your TV does not have a scart socket, the only equivalent HD lead (as the wii doesn't support HDMI) is a wii component cable like the one here: http://www.amazon.com/Official-Wii-Component-Video-Cable-Nintendo/dp/B000JJRV90/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1262346399&sr=8-1 .

Most HDTV's havea component interface on the back as well as this is required. The six jacks are all colour coded so it shouldn't be a problem plugging it in the back but this is the only way to connect it up if you don't have a scart lead available.

Can the wii be connected with hdmi cable


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.

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.
