Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
My wii asks for a video and audio inlet but there only seems to be outlets
I was having exactly the same problem with my toshiba 28N33B until 2 minutes ago! I searched the internet for the solution but only came accross your unanswered question, i hope you've sorted it by now anyway as its been 6 months, but for all those with a similar problem:
You cannot connect your wii to AV OUTLETS only INLETS! At first glance it appears that the 28N33B only has outlets....BUT actually, the AV inlets are (stupidly) hidden behind the speaker to the right of the TV screen (as if you were looking at the screen) - they are separate from all the other ports at the back of the tv.
For anyone looking for Toshiba inlets on other models - my advice would be to take a deep breath, push the telly out from the wall and take a GOOD long look all over the tv for three circular ports coloured red, white and yellow that have the words 'in' or 'inlet' etc printed near to them. You're wasting your time trying to connect the wii via the audio output, it just wont work, no matter how much you re-tune the tv (I know from experience! grr!)
Right, i'm off to play mariokart, hope this helps somebody!

Welcome to fixya
I have a solution for this
The AV Multi Out plug that is included with the Wii will allow you to connect the console to most TVs or VRCs. 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. If you are unable to find a set of yellow, red, and white AV inputs on the back of your TV, try looking on the sides, top, and bottom of the TV. Look for any hidden panels or doors as well. Connecting to a Television Audio/Video (AV) inputs are typically located on the back of the TV, but occassionally are on the sides, top, or bottom. Look for inputs marked Audio and Video IN. Do NOT connect your system to anything marked OUT. Don't see these inputs on your TV? Click here. Insert the AV Multi Out plug on the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console Insert the DC plug on the Wii AC Adapter cord into the DC Input connector on the back of the Wii console. Insert the AC plug into a 120V AC wall outlet CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, match the wide blade of the plug to the wide slot and insert fully into the outlet. Plug the transformer into the wall outlet. The Sensor Bar can be placed either above or below your TV screen. Decide which option best fits you and click the image below for additional set up help, including mounting the Sensor Bar and proper alignment.
