I cannot have the Wii plugged in and the DVD player at the same time
If one is plugged in, the other has no sound. Help! I have to go behind the TV and unplug the inputs to audio and switch to the Wii, or to the DVD. What am I doing wrong? I thought the S Video cord would input sound and picture from the DVD...apparently not. Advice??

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.
The best thing I can think of is to turn on the wii, go to the tv and press tv/video once and if nothing shows up then press it again (this will take your tv to video 2) and if that doesn't work then turn your tv to channel 3 or 4 and see if one of those channels work, also if your wii is plugged into a vcr or dvd player make sure that vcr/dvd player is on! I'd recommend just directly plugging the wii into the tv though on the count that its easier to setup that way...
If this doesn't work then call nintendo because their customer service is superb in my opinion.
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.
Is the dvd built into the unit? Im not sure.
If your comfortable with the wiring behind the unit I can try and help you out.
Im guessing your just using plain cable that your running to your tv. If so you should have a audio output in the back of your tv (the red and white one) there should be a RCA cable into this output (best buy would have installed it already). follow this cable down to the back of the Reciever and it should be plugged into the input for TV.
Your Consols are a little more difficult. They can run them through your tv or bypass it. Ill tell you how to put them through your tv so that the sound from them will only come when the tv is on (not sure when else you would need it). The back of you consols you will have the 3 RCA's (red, white, Yellow) plug them into the back of your tv in the input ports... Playstation to 1, Wii to 2. There should be all the jacks needed to do this (if you have a newer tv). Now when you turn on your tv and make sure the reciever is turned to TV your should get your sound. Try the gaming consols, they should both work (you will need to switch the Tv to video input, usually by the source button).
If you still get no sound but pictures try turning your volume up on the tv, if you have volume there check your settings on the tv for the volume output...some brands allow you to mute this.
Hope this helps
