    Wii on Apple Display DVI

    Hi all

    Brand new member here! :-)

    I am lucky enough to have a 30" Apple Cinema Display. I would like to connect my Wii but I'm not sure how to do it.

    Possible issues?:
    the display is DVI. I understand there are Wii -> VGA transcoders. How do I then make it work on a DVI monitor?

    also, the native resolution of the disply is high: 2560 x 1600 pixels
    It also supports
    2048 x 1280
    1920 x 1200
    1280 x 800
    1024 x 640

    If I buy a Wii -> VGA transcoder, and then a VGA -> DVI adapter, will it work?
    Will the image quality be really downgraded?
    Anyone done this?

    Many thanks for any help!

    Heres something but I am not sure if it works in either direction and if your monitor would support it:

    This would also require that you buy a component Wii cable.

    Also if you are stuck with the solution you described, I believe a simple VGA>DVI plug converter will suffice, but I can't comment on video quality.

    EDIT: Here happens to be a past thread about your such situation:

    Hi Kyle

    Thanks for your reply but it looks like it won't work.
    One of the comments from newegg says:
    Only work on windows Doesn't work in reverse

    Any other thoughts appreciated.
