Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing what prior customers info you may be reading through, and we need to take each situation on a case by case basis as there are many variables. Please provide the complete model number of your tv and a bit more detail about what your'e trying to do.
What are you splitting?
Thanks for confirming.
Are you trying to use the wii via the red/white/yellow, or red/green/blue+red/white?How are the dtv and BR connected? Those should be on hdmi.
If the dtv box has hdmi, then you should use it (there is no benefit to using RGB, it only hurts the picture quality).
So switch dtv (if possible) to hdmi. If you can't, I'd recommend calling direct and asking them to send you a new box, you're missing out on the HD capabilities of your tv otherwise.
Then, use the RGB from the wii, with no switch/box needed there. Just hook up the corresponding colors and then set the tv SOURCE mode to HD/Component.
I am an independent technician and I've spent my personal time, unpaid, in an effort to assist with the question for which you solicited my services. This site works on the honor system, and to that end, I have prioritized working with you ahead of other paying customers.
Although you’ve already paid your fee to the site, I am only compensated for my efforts when customers such as yourself leave positive feedback for my work.. I do hope you’ll consider leaving a 5 star rating for me, rather than “shoot the messenger”, so that I may get credit for my time spent in good faith to answer your question accurately.
No problem, thanks for the update, let me know how it works out when you have a chance.
