In South Africa even the information superhighway has potholes in it.
Yeah. That is what I am trying to do. I have the RCA cables (yellow, white and red) for both the dstv and wii. I have the dstv connected and picture looks perfect. When I try connect the wii RCA cables into the component input, I get sound but my picture is black and white. The cables are working perfect as I tried the wii in the inputs where the dstv is working and the picture is in full color but the dstv then shows black and white. So it's either something I am doing wrong or the connections are stuffed?
will you read please. You CANNOT connect your wii's composite out into a component in and expect it to work.
Counting down till I'm free of Hell-C
Go and buy a component cable for your Wii, problem sorted.
Ultimately to get the best picture out of your LG 1080p TV, it would be best to get both, Wii HD component cable & HDPVR.
Still here ... FTL drives offline
I don't use the wii enough to spend the extra cash, it's used more in my daughters room on there tv. With regards to dstv, I am on a compact package, literally only use it for soccer. All my other other media plays through hdmi. Is there a reason why the dstv also won't work when connected to component - is it the same reason the wii doesn't work? Sorry for sounding stupid, just very confused with some people saying it will work and others saying it wont.
Just because the connectors fit it doesn't mean it's meant to work.
In the Age of Information
ignorance is a choice
So much of confusion. OP, what you want to do will never work...
Didn't you get one of these with your Wii?
Some times the internet is so slow, it would be faster to just fly to Google's headquarters and ask them this $h1t in person.!
