Integra 5.9 wii hookup
Sporadically comes on video. Usually get the Audio. Trying to connect thru game tv
Hello, my name is Rusty. I can help you.What type of cable are you using to connect your Wii to your sound system?What type of TV do you have?
Cable has three outputs. White red yellow. Came out of the box with the wii. Tv ia a jvc. D- ila
Hmm, it sounds like you have it hooked up correctly. What cable are you using to connect your Integra to your TV?
HdmiI typically get the error NO PROGRAM when I try to turn on the wii. Usually I have to flip the tv, receiver, or wii off / on several times until the wii menu comes up. Usually I can hear the wii jingle while the tv screen remains blank.
That is a common problem with the upconversion to HDMI when video games are the source. Video games use different graphics, which creates a problem with the upconversion to HDMI. The PS3 has the same problem. It is fixed by turning off the TV, then turning it back on.There are 3 things you can do (try the third one first, then consider option 1 or 2):1) Connect the receiver to your TV with RGB component cables.2) Leave the red/white audio cables, and run the yellow cable directly to your TV. You will have to switch the receiver like you do normally, then also switch the TV to the correct input so you can see the video.3) Adjust the screen settings on the Wii.Wii settings>Screen>TV resolution>set it to 480p. Sometimes it helps with the upconversion.If that doesn't work, and you don't want to switch the cabling, I understand, especially the HDMI from the receiver. Let me know what you would like to do. I aim for 100% satisfaction, and don't give up easily.
For step 3 I cannot select 480p on the settings. It only let's me select 480i. I can put the yellow into the tv and that seems to work, but the extra steps of changing the input on the tv is not good. If I get a new component cable from the wii to the receiver will that work?Do newer tv sets have this problem figured out?
Sorry you're having trouble with the 480p. The component connection will have enough signal to help the upconversion. There is a chance that your component cable will have the same problem. It's a scanning problem, that occurs between the wii signal and the TV.It is safe to assume also, that the conversion is part of your receiver. I see that here all the time. My suggestion, if you don't want to switch your TV's input, is to buy the component cable with a 30 day return policy. It will help, but I cannot guarantee that the cable will fix the problem. It's about a 50/50 chance that everything will be compatible. I still think the best fix is to run the yellow cable directly to your TV. The component cable will not better your picture, but it will have less information going through each cable, making the chance of flawless upconversion more possible.Let me know what you want to do. I wish there was a better answer for you, but the component cable is a maybe, and the yellow to the TV is a guarantee. It will get the job done, but go ahead and try the component cable before you rate my answer. It works on some systems, and not on others, so it's hard to tell without trying it.
