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




What do you think about this video?

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

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.

Lauren Montez: thanks beared xoxo, smart girls

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?

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!!

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

Trae Kryzer: 氷忍者

dN GHK: freak you and your mother freaking beared

GerRos Gonzalez: Thank you Maniac lol! Really helped.

Chris C.: Thank.you sooo much for that. Im going to go get the cables n.try and Ill.tell u how I did!!! 

Justin Labrecque: This dude reminds me of zach galifinakis

ElCapo696: What if i have a 55 inch TV? help.. 

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.

John Keller: Are you Wyatt from Weird Science?

Mattias Hallén: 480p is not HD...

Krista Orozco: well when I plug in and change settings it is a split black and white screen, but if I change settings back it is still black and white just not split plus if I plug anything in the blue port it does nothing, got any suggestions

Straw berryDaggers: 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.

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!

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 :( 

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

hsp gamer: Didn't work :(

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

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

roberta423: Thanks for the help!

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?

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

Leels: Zach Galifianakis anyone? ;)

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?

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

Roman Roque: very informative! good job

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

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??

Sofia Prado: Thank u 4 the help

Martin Andersen: Thanks dude.. Helped alot.

larissa vincent: Thnks it helped 

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

TheBakanimationz: That was big help thanks alot mate

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

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

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.

infinitydust time to rise presents: thanks it was helpful!

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
