Do all three plugs from the Wii have to be connected?


No. Only the video plug (the yellow one) and the left audio plug (the white one) need to be connected to the TV. You'll want to change the audio settings on the Wii to Mono; otherwise games may not sound right. This allows you to use the Wii on television sets that only have one audio input jack (mostly cheap ones).

No right channel on AV2


First, does TV sound without external sources work on both channels?

With the one RCA connected and getting sound, unplug it and plug into other channel. Any sound? If not, remove it and plug the other RCA by itself into the left channel. Sound? If yes, plug it into the right channel. No sound? If not, bad TV input.

If you do get sound on that other channel with a single RCA, then you have either a bad cable or bad source. Reverse RCA's on source and try same test, plugging each RCA into each input on TV one at a time.

If the TV is bad, you will get sound on just the left channel regardless of which RCA you use.

Wii help


Hello :




1:Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console.
2:

Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the TV. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

Yellow = Video Input
White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
Red = Audio Input Right

3:Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, you must find the Input Select for your TV to view the game (it is likely not going to be seen on Channel 3 or 4). Typically this is found by pressing the TV/Video button on the Television's front panel or remote control. If you have more than one input channel, keep pressing TV/Video until you see the display from the Wii.
If you do not have a TV/Video button, then the input could be labeled something different. Some other common input selects to look for on the TV or remote are: Input, Input Select, EXT, AUX, or a channel such as 00 or 99.

I hope this will help .

Hi, I am having trouble connecting my Nintendo Wii to my Onkyo TX-SR507


Take the adapter cable from the Wii that plugs into the back of the Wii and converts the output(audio/video) into RCA style pin plugs, you will have: RED=right channel audio, plug it into any of the red audio INPUT on your Onkyo, then you will have WHITE=left channel audio, plug it into the other white INPUT jack next to the red plug on the Onkyo, then you will have YELLOW= video(picture) that will go directly to the yellow video INPUT on the back or side INPUTS of your TV.
Then when you want to play the Wii, set the input mode on the Onkyo to the inputs that you connected the red and white plugs into, then change the input on your TV to which ever the input is labeled on your TV in which you plugged the yellow plug into, you now will have sound comming from your Onkyo and the Wii up on the TV screen ready to play. Good luck!

JUST BOUGHT wii SPORTS FOLLOWED THE STEPS TO


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.

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'm trying to connect my denon dvd player to tv


The yellow plug is composite video; the red and white are analog audio. Not knowing specifics about your TV or Denon model number, I would suggest:

-- the red and white connectors go to the audio in on the DVD, and to the audio out on the TV. There will be a left channel and a right channel. Make sure you connect the same color plug on the same channel. In other words, if you put the red plug in the right audio out on the TV, also put the red plug in the right audio in on the DVD, the white in the left audio out on the TV and in on the audio in on the DVD.

-- the yellow connector will go on the video out on the TV, video in on the DVD.

For better audio, consider using gold connectors, if you don't already have same.

Alternatively, you may wish to purchase and use an S-video connector if your equipment allows. This would replace the yellow composite video cable, and enhances your image.

Hope this helps!

How to get wii game to work on tv i have a sylvania tv


The Wii console should have included a cable to plug into the AV Multi-out Connector. This cable has the plug for the Wii on one end, and three RCA plugs on the other. They are color-coded yellow for the video output, and red and white for right and left channel audio outputs. These plugs would go into the corresponding RCA input jacks on your TV (if it has them), and you would select that input using the TV remote or front panel buttons.

If your TV doesn't have A/V inputs, you need to get an RF converter. This device takes the A/V signals from the Wii and converts it to a signal on channel 3 or 4 so you can tune it in on your TV. These cost around $15 at Wal-Mart and other retailers.

If you have lost your Wii connecting cable or didn't get one, you can order replacements from online vendors.

Can hook up my wii to this tv


The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you to connect the console to most televisions or video cassette recorders (VCR). First, look at the back of your television AND your VCR and see if you have colored holes label "Input". Though most TVs have them, almost all VCRs do as well.

  • Audio/Video (AV) inputs are located on the front or back of the TV or VCR.
  • They are smooth silver posts with the inside showing a color, usually red, white and yellow.
  • Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN.
  • The image on the left features stereo audio inputs. Some televisions have only one audio input. Click here for help setting up a mono audio connection.
  • Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT.
Where do you have these inputs?
Additional Options:



Connecting to a Television
  1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. setuptvav.gif


  2. Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the TV. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

    Yellow = Video Input
    White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
    Red = Audio Input Right

  3. Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, you must find the Input Select for your TV to view the game (it is likely not going to be seen on Channel 3 or 4). Typically this is found by pressing the TV/Video button on the Television's front panel or remote control.

Connecting to a VCR, DVD-R, Cable Box, etc.
    In order to connect a video game system through a device such as a VCR, DVR, cable or satelite box, it must have Video and Audio "inputs." While most VCRs and VCR/DVD combos have these inputs, other devices typically have "Outputs" which will not work for playing your Wii console. Please verify the device you are attempting to use has these holes.
    While many cable/satelite boxes and DVRs may have "inputs," accessing them can be difficult. Please consult the instruction manual for the device you are connecting to, for more information.
  1. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. setupvcrav.gif


  2. Insert the RCA plugs on the Wii AV Cable into the input connectors on the VCR. Make sure you are plugging the connectors into the holes labeled"Input" or "In". Holes labeled"Output" or "Out" will not work. Plug the colored connectors into the following inputs:

    Yellow = Video Input
    White = Audio Input Left (or Mono)
    Red = Audio Input Right
    Interested in playing your games in Dolby Pro Logic II (simulated surround sound)? Click here setup information.

  3. Once the cables are inserted and the Wii is powered on, put your TV on the channel you use to watch movies (usually channel 3 or 4). Put in a video tape and play the movie. When you see the movie playing, press stop (do not power off the VCR!) and proceed to the next step.

  4. You will now need to find the Input Select for your VCR. This is usually a button on the original remote control that is labeled Input Select, AUX, Input, EXT, Line In, or a high or low channel. For more information on locating your input select, click here.
