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!
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.
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.
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?
Trae Kryzer: 氷忍者
Connor Hanley: i just git a wii where do i find a controller

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

Mike Learned: Hey. A few things. Firstly, this will not give you 1080p. The Wii isn't
capable of this, only 480p (but it still is a better resolution than the
Second, and more importantly, go to monoprice.com and do a search for wii
cable. Theirs is $2.72. Wayyyy better than Best Buy, Target, Walmart,
etc. at $35.
Ally Tv: thanks it was helpful!
HowToDoAndFixIt: You don't really need these component cables, and you can use the original
Yellow, Red and White RCA cables that came with your Nintendo. All you get
is 480 resolution and all you have to do, is to plug the single yellow
"VIDEO" connector into the GREEN (Video) receptacle on your HDTV
"Component" inputs and the red and white into the Audio inputs, and switch
your TV to "COMP/AV" and not RGB/COMP and you have both Video and Audio.
Beloved Console: 480p please!... hahaha
Roman Roque: very informative! good job
Kirsten Petersen: But then if u can do it with the normaly cables, how do u do it??
Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
