Can i send video from Nintendo Wii through my home theater to my projector?

I have a projector that gets one video out cable from the home theater system. I also use the projector to play nintendo wii and im tired of constantly switiching the video cable that is plugged into the projector from the wii video cable to the video out cable from the home theater system. is there a way i can plug the video out cable from the wii into the home theater somewhere and have it send the wii video through the video out cable of the home theater i already have going to the projector? (sorry if this is confusing).

A few things to consider; what type of connection is your Wii using? Composite, component, s-video, coax? Most home theater setups are made to route multiple video signals, usually of the Composite (RCA Red Yellow White) variety, and should be clearly labeled Video In. If it doesn't have extra inputs, you might want to consider buying a media switchbox- A switch like the one linked above allows you to hook multiple audio and video sources into it and easily switch between them by pressing a button on the front.

I cant her anything on wii

Can you see the video? If you are able to see the video on your Wii, check your connections going into the TV or Home Theater System. If it's not going directly into the back of the TV, I would suggest unplugging it from whatever else it is going into, then plugging it into the TV to see if you are able to get sound that way.

If you are getting sound when it's plugged directly into the TV, then something is wrong with your external source, but I would need more information to help you with that.
Component Cables should be plugged in as Green / Blue / Red / White / Red, standard A/V Cables should be plugged in to Yellow / White / Red.

I just purchased a nintendo wii game symstem a d after attaching all the cords and sensor and inserted a wii sports game that came with it will not play the game i've tried it on all three of my home tvs...

Are you using the video cable (RCA, that's the yellow, red and white calbe) that came with the Wii or another cable like the gamecube cable? The Gamecube cable looks exactly the same, but won't work on the wii.
If you tried with the RCA cable that came with the Wii and it still doesn't work, try to loan one from someone else and try it with your Wii. If it still doesn't work, your video port behind your Wii is busted. If you're still under waranty, Nintendo will fix it or send you a refurbished one, just call them at 1-800-255-3700

I dont know how to connect the wii to my rx-465 receiver.

The Wii AV cable should have a red/white pair of Audio Output jacks on it.
Check out pg. 8 of the Wii manual:
Connect the red/white RCA plugs from the AV cable to a line level audio input on your receiver. If you use AUX IN, then select AUX IN on the INPUT selector switch. You should then hear the sound from the Wii through your receiver/home theater system.

I have Epson Projector and Acer Laptop both with DVI connections. How do I connect a Nintendo Wi-fit consul so I can play and hear the games. I have a wireless sensor.

I've never seen a projector with DVI ONLY -- double check your projector and all compartments and see if it has any other inputs. The wii can use the regular composite, red, yellow, white output. The wii can use SVideo and the Wii can use component output -- red, green, blue video and red/white audio. I do not think there is a DVI cable for the Wii.

How to hook up wii to surround sound

Put all the wires to the tv. Now you need another A\V cable (yellow, red, white) only use red and white from, audio out on tv to audio in on surround system and set it to TV. OR Put the red and white from Wii to surround system and the yellow to the tv. this way you have to use surround to hear it. The other way you can use the tv or both. The first way is ideal if you have an extra cable.

Connecting my wii to my home theater

  1. Connect your set-top box HDMI output to the Xbox One HDMI input.
  2. Connect the Xbox One HDMI output to your A/V HDMI input.
  3. Connect your A/V HDMI output to the HDMI input on your TV.
  4. Notes
  5. This option requires that all devices support audio over HDMI.
  6. Surround sound from your set-top box will not be passed through the Xbox One.
  7. When you perform this kind of basic setup with an A/V receiver, you're passing both audio and video through another device. Depending on your equipment, there's a small risk of audio or video lag.
  8. Connect your set-top box HDMI output to the Xbox One HDMI input.
  9. Connect the Xbox One HDMI output to the HDMI input on your TV.
  10. Connect the audio output from the TV to the audio input on the sound bar using either HDMI or optical S/PDIF cables.

Can you use a Wii with a projector?

Yes. All you need to do is get an HDMI cable (should come with the projector) and connect that to the back of the TV. If it is not long enough, unfortunately, there are no extentions for sale.
