How To Connect The Nintendo Wii To A HDTV (1080p HD)




What do you think about this video?

Andy G: Quick question, what do you do if your HDTV doesn't have component ports on it? Would a component to HDMI adapter/upscaler fix that problem?

Charlie'sGayBand: i plugged my RWY cables into my HDTV with OWRGB and I just get sound and no video

Pro Tuts: I have an adapter that converts the original "yellow, white, red" to this headphone jack like thing

dadsmaggots soul,nera: I still have the av multi out

cutie8264: If the a/v cable that has the blue, green, white, and red cords is connected from the wii to the HDTV? Is a power cord still needed? Because I connected the wii with the a/v cord but it will not turn on. 

John Everitt: Picked up the Nintendo Component cable at GameStop for 12.99 (used). Hooked it all up...works like you said. Thanks!

Liv Crouse: I have an Emerson TV so what channel hdmi1 or 2 or 3 or component

Krayzie Roach: thanks 4 da info

LITTLETRIP: Thanks! :D

Sylwester Wieczorek: I don't have component input in my TV. Is there any other way to obtain 480p??? I have 2 HDMI, composite av and vga (d-sub).

The Hyrule Gamer: Those video cables are the bane of my existence 

Adrian Vitela: Mine is black and white 

GoranMuzevic24: Does anyone know how to connect the Nintendo Wii Console on TV Sony Bravia W805A model?

VeronicaMist: I love you Maniac536

sportspiratemlspb: I was given a Nintendo Wii by my best friend. He gave me the Wii, six games, three controllers, and all cables with the exception of the audio, video (Red, yellow, and white) cables. Where can I purchase these essnetials to fit the Wii (besides online)? Thanks.

Phil Freiberg: Gday mate, how many cords did you plug into tv? 3 or 5?

Lee Thompson-Kolar: What happens to GameCube games when played on the Wii & HD television? Do those game look normal, or do they worsen graphically?

Sonic Boom!: Al, where's the wolf pack? Haha nice vid mate, I wish I had of known about this when I still had my wii.

malcolmar: Great video! Immediately people complain about the graphics on the Wii and they are not even seeing the Wii at it's full potential. ALSO these cables are much cheaper than the Gamecube component cables and the 480p Gamecube games like F-Zero look FANTASTIC on HDTV for those who have a first gen Wii that plays Gamecube games. I was toying around with the idea of getting a component to HDMI adapter to connect my Wii via to my TV via HDMI. Has anyone done this? Are there any great improvements over the 480p component cables alone? Thanks!

Amari Neshou: Okay, all those little holes behind my grandma's HDTV confused the hell out of me... I think I got it now. THANK YOU now I don't have to break my neck trying to plug in a game system.

Strictly Games: The Wii's hardware wasn't made with HD in mind, because the highest resolution it output's with component cable's attached is 480p.

Mattias Hallén: 480p is not HD...

Susie Shepherd: This was very helpful, and it saved me a lot more unwanted stress. Thank you for taking the time to do this.

Connor Hanley: i just git a wii where do i find a controller

Jay Shady: but on my tv if you use the yellow cable it turns black and white.

Lauren Montez: thanks beared xoxo, smart girls

Maximilian Perry: This is a bit late, but if anyone is searching through this to see how to fix the "no colour" problem, you need to "cycle through your television's input channels (usually with the 'Input Select' or 'Source' button on your TV's remote control) to find the input select that has the image in color. If you're only finding the image in black and white, you may need to switch the setting of the input select from a component signal to a standard AV signal. This can be done by: An on screen menu option. This is often accessed by using the 'Menu' button on the remote. A button on the remote that switches between the standard and component signals. These can be labeled such things as 'AV' or 'Video'." http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/windows/no_composite.jsp

Den F: Thanks this was of great help as I had come to the conclusion that the old cables wouldn't work but wasn't sure if they made new cables. Thanks great job!!

Aseem Verma: A friend got the latest LG 3D TV, I was setting it up for her and was shocked when I saw they have 2 coaxial ports and 3 AV that's all left in the newer TVs though 3Sata, 1 USB and 4 HDMI ports but all her peripherals are coaxial based which means depends on HDMI converters or buy new stuff!

Erjon Millaku: Can i play in wii GTA 5 .

GerRos Gonzalez: Thank you Maniac lol! Really helped.

TheBakanimationz: That was big help thanks alot mate

Etude: Everyone keeps saying they plugged it in and it came out black and white. Mine too..anyone fix this? It's driving me bonkers.

channell Robinson: This video is useless I cannot see where you are bulging the cords in at

Justin Labrecque: This dude reminds me of zach galifinakis

iBeDeeDee757: What if you hook it up to your TV and the picture (color) is black and white?? what should I do??

John Keller: Are you Wyatt from Weird Science?

Trae Kryzer: 氷忍者

Neil McMillan: I got the audio and video working but there isn't any color :( 

Eduardo Herrera: Hey can you use the HD cables to use on a regular tv.?

Carlos Miguel: i connected the wii to the tv with the component cables (hd ones) but the edtv or hdtv option is still grey(i cant press i) please help

rRegularock: Alright if you got a different one that has a yellow cable just put the yellow cable in the green hole or input whatever its called and white and red of the audio put it on the last which is red and white. Hope it helped and i also have a different one that also have the green,blue,red but it also brought yellow.
