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




What do you think about this video?

TheBakanimationz: That was big help thanks alot mate

Sofia Prado: Thank u 4 the help

Captainclaws: i have this strange adaptor from nyko that i use an hdmi cable with

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

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

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.?

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.

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

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

Leels: Zach Galifianakis anyone? ;)

Pao Ram: My tv's component plugs have the usual green blue and red for video but i have only 1 audio plug that's black. What color, red or wite, should i place in the black audio plug?

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

Olivia Dickson: I have a HDTV and I've set it up with the normal cable... How would I do that again?

carlie haug: & then thres megan fox

KinnArchimedes: 3:22 in, just tell me where to stick 'em damn it!!!!

Melanie McField: Thank you SO much!!! It worked!!!!!

Ben River: thanks it was helpful!

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.

daxtyn minn: so what is that are all the games on the first page of your wii the 14th one ?

Jamela Singletary: This was such a big help. Thank you so much for doing this video. I appreciate you!

roberta423: Thanks for the help!

Mike Mora: I bought the cables you suggested to hook my Wii up to my HDTV. I plugged the cables into their respective slots and everything works fine except my picture is black and white. I am 100% certain the cords are plugged in correctly. Is there a way to get it to be color?

Martin Andersen: Thanks dude.. Helped alot.

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 standard 480i). 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.

larissa vincent: Thnks it helped 

KinnArchimedes: plugs in cables: it's a black f'n screen!!

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.

Mario Felipe: 480p please!... hahaha

Roman Roque: very informative! good job

hsp gamer: Didn't work :(

Kirsten Petersen: But then if u can do it with the normaly cables, how do u do it??

Andrew Favazza: You sir must have bad eye sight to think that is 1080p

mawwwwwwwwwwk64: I have a problem with this. I did everything this video said to do. I put the cables in the correct places, i turned the switch to hdmi on the cord, i switched it to component, but nothing still happens. Ive double checked everything but it still says no signal. is my wii broken? It worked fine on my old tv. Also it won't turn off when i press the power button. Does anyone have an idea on what i should do?

JAMMEZZ1996: Can someone help me. I'm not a techi guy. Here's my problem. I'm trying to sell my wii so I tried using it after 2 years. I got sound but no picture and everything else was working. My cousin took it with all my cables and they got picture on their tv?? My tv is a HD sharp the same one I played the wii on 2 years ago. I can't figure out why I got picture on 1 tv and not another with the exact same console and cables

Kaaaaaaaaaaath: Please help I only have red green and blue plug ins in my tv, what are my options?

Jordon Jackson: I think he was making mention that this video in particular is available in 1080p. Obviously the Wii can't output at 1080p which is honestly a little sad.

MrPhantom19: Is it worth to hook up the wii to HD on a HDTV , i mean is there such a big difference? :/

urizen4501: Thanks man, good advice.

ZombieSim100: thanks

TheLakabanzaichrg: you should check for a screw near the inputs on your TV you can unscrew and screw it until it's very thigh Doesn't work in all the HDTV's

BlackMan Channel: You said 1080p!

HF Scorpio: I have a sony

SteveN ChewY: Yeah! that's him... Who is that actor?

Gene Jost: This info is all over the internet. Youtube just happened to be the first option.

Kirsten Petersen: So u have to but these cabel, to connect a wii to a HDTV?

bigstar66: Thanks for the guide. Will there be any lag once you use the component cables and change the settings?

Hejlar: i love your poster of alex :D

Steven McGurk: when i connect my component cables to my tv i just get a black screen, i've made sure everything is connected properly but it's not working, anybody got any advice?

Maniac536: @MrPolishDawg please post model number so I can see an image
