    Can I connect the Wii to my computer?

    Hi there,

    I'm thinking of buying a Wii but I don't have a TV, so I'd like to know if I could connect the Wii to my computer (Apple Macbook Pro, newest revision). If so, which cables and/or software would I need? I've got Mac OS X and Windows XP SP2 installed, so OS-wise it shouldn't be a problem.

    Cheers
    - Clemens

    Theoretically, yes you could connect your Wii to a computer...

    But it wouldn't do anything.

    I think he is asking if he can use the computer Monitor to play the Wii on. (I think) And i'm sorry I do not think that is possible almost every game system requires a TV

    Yes, you can hook up your wii to a monitor, though its much more complicated with a laptop.

    I thought he was asking if he could transfer files etc., which would be nice, but that would make things too easy for people to hack.

    Thanks for the answers, guys. You're right, I actually would prefer to play with it and not just connect it! But I thought that was obvious ...
    That guy on YouTube ... It's somehow suspicious that he wouldn't show his keyboard - could be a fake with a standard LCD TV, if you ask me ... Other than that he probably would have given instructions on how to do it!

    Connecting to a laptop would be... really hard. It's best just to get a TV, and, you can get them pretty cheap. Get an older second hand TV, and you'll barely have to pay!

    What's the difficulties there? How would you go about connecting a laptop? And what about connecting a standard TFT screen (I've got a spare one, that's why I'm asking)?

    there is some plug that you put in your monter that converts it to the yello plug thing or buy a tv tunner for your mac if it is very fast there may be some lag with it tho

    You need an VGA adapter to connect your wii to your cart/lcd monitor. I personally recomend this: http://www.x2vga.com/product

    it supports up to 1080i/p and can use up to two inputs (like a Wii, and a xbox 360 at once) plus it has a switch to switch the monitor from computer mode to video game mode. Expensive, but easy to use and quality is good.

    Check it out.
