    Sorry but the SVideo cable does not work on European consoles, they have RGB instead. Seems strange I know! And I know people on ebay are selling them but Ebuyer are too!

    There will be converters from rgb to svideo and vga available i should imagine, they might not be cheap though! It's a shame your projector does not have component inputs, that would give you the best picture using the Wii component cable.

    Sorry i have no idea, component is 3 cables - R,G and B. I have no idea what the other two are for, they might be control signals of some sort for the VGA. You could try it but it might not work, i wonder if anyone else can help?

    Should they not be red and white?

    And if it's VGA why would it have sound? VGA does not carry sound.

    Be very careful. Do not mix up RGB with component video. They are different standard. RGB signal can be pass through VGA port with adapter cable, while component input may require a transcoder unless your projector/monitor support component input. Some projectors do but not with most monitors. The plugs on component output are colored red, green, and blue which make people confused with RGB signal. An RGB-VGA adapter cable is much cheaper than a component-VGA transcoder.
    Some European Wii seems to support S-video. Sometimes, the problem is with the S-video cable itself. I got one from GameStop that the shield of the plug is too long and does not work well when I plug into a switch box but on my projector.
