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 don't know what channel to go to to be able to play my dvd player


where did you hooked up the connector wire coming from the dvd player, in the component input or at the RF jack of the tuner of the tv?. if you plug at the component input of the tv you will select AV1 or AV2 etc. in the settings. but if you hooked up into the RF jack you can select channel 3 in the tv but at this time you need to have manual tuned in the tv to get the signal coming from the dvd player or xbox.

I have a 32" flatscreen


Different video signals use different connections ...and we are speaking ONLY the video(NOT including the audio connections)
  • Composite Video (typically colored Yellow) uses 1 RCA connection on your TV
  • Svideo (uses 1 svideo connector on your TV) a circular connector with 4 pins in it
  • Component Video (typically colored Red/Green/Blue) uses 3 RCA connections on your TV
These are the common analog video signals....You cannot mix and match these and plug a composite (Sometimes called AV in menus) into component etc
If both your sources (wii/DVD) you want to use a component signal to your TV (which BTW is the best quality of the 3 I listed) you will need 2 component inputs on your TV
OR
run it through a high end receiver (that will act as your switcher)
OR
buy a small stand alone switcher, something like: http://www.amazon.com/4X1-HD-Component-Av-Selector/dp/B000BVIBGI/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_4

settle for a lower quality DVD signal and use the Composite video out (yellow jack) into the Composite Video In on the TV and use the component for wii

I hope this helps,

Have satelite as AV1, Wii as AV2 - hooked DVD player up as component 1 using RCA plugs but it is only black and white and very grainy.


Connect the yellow RCA jack, which is actually called composite video, not component, to the DVD. If it's component, it's the wrong jack and you'll need the additional 4 cables to satisfy a component connection for HDTV.

How do I hook up my Wii to my 32" Emerson lcd hd tv? I have my dishnetwork satellite hooked into the dvd player and it's hooked up to the TV. On my remote I don't see a "game" button like my older Emerson...


I found a better way and it works fine. I have a new 32 inch Emerson, with only one composit hood up ( which won't work with the wii) 2 HDMI's ( again does not hook up to the wii, the monitor hook up for PC, red and white ( yellow plus is not there it's for a stereo they told me), and the usb hook up ( which is more for pictures I was told by the company).The answer was to hook my RCA plus to the red and white under the composite, then hook the yellow into the green plug of the composite, and behold- my will now works fine.

I need to know what channel to operate my wii on. I have a toshiba tv that is about 8 years old.


Try changing the TV inputs to VIDEO or AUX, using the remote or a button on your TV. If there is not a way to connect the Wii to the TV using the 3-cable system (Yellow, Red and White), then you might have to use a VCR or DVD player to plug the 3 cables into and then transmit the audio and video from the Wii using the regular cable line of VCR or DVD Player on TV channels 3 or 4. If your Wii has a regular TV Cable jack on the back, connect that to the jack on the back of you TV and select channel 3 or 4.

I cant figure out how to run it through my dvd player


You should not be able to, the Wii has a mini disc player and is not compatible with any DVD player. The DVD player should have two plugs on it, one to the wall input and one with yellow and red input jacks if you don't have a AV in-put out-put connection on your TV then you need a adapter for to TV for the DVD player.
