    Think I should go with the Wii VGA Cable ($40)

    http://www.vdigi.com/index.php?page=...chk=1&Itemid=1

    or just get the

    KWORLD TVBox 1920ex Output up to 1920x1200 w/YPbPr 1080i input - Retail ($90)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815260014



    Seems like for that $50 more I'd get TV on my monitor if need be right?




    EDIT -

    I'm curious if anyone knows if this would work. Lets say I get that TVBox which has 'audio inputs' does that mean I cannot get a Optical audio cable with a Digital Optical (Toslink) Female / 3.5mm Male on the end of it going into the TVBox and the other end of the cable going into my Logitech 5.1 5500 speakers?

    Really be nice to be able to use my PC Speakers instead of the crappy 2W's that are on most PC monitors.

    I'm pretty sure that would not work, because the TVBox only take analog audio input. Even if you use the Optical->3.5mm adapter, the signal is still in optical form...which won't be recognized by the tvbox.

    Hmmm your probably right.

    In that case, would there be anyway I could hook the Wii's sound (TVBox's sound? / Wii VGA Cable sound?) to my Computer speakers (monitor speakers usually suck...)?

    I guess I'm a little confused with that Kworld TVBox device - all the connections are labeled "Input", so which is the output? I assume the VGA connector is the only video output, which means one of the 3.5mm audio jacks would go directly to your speakers (most likely the green one). They provide you with a 3.5mm audio cable, so you should be all set in that respect.

    Nevertheless, if you wanted to connect the audio output from your wii directly to your computer without going through this little box, you would just need to get one of these:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882196031

    It takes the left and right channel (RCA) as input, and the output connects to your front channel jack on your speakers (green).

    The output would be male VGA to male VGA to the computer monitor for the Wii, while my actual PC video card would be to the DVI on the monitor.


    The VGA Cable for Wii is like this




    while the TVBox is



    where the Wii's AV cables go into the cables supplies into the Y port



    Heres is the cheaper version which is probably properly marked with an audio output



    would i then take the audio cable supplied by the TVBOX and go into the side of my Speakers Console box?

    You would connect it to the green jack on the back of your speaker box. The one on the side (with musical notes) might work, but I know the green one on the back will.

    Cool, yeah even if the sound only came in on stereo quality that would be fine


    Looks like the TVBox is a winner then?



    How do these extras look for my *future* Wii?

    rechargeable battery pack with a cable to charge instead of a stupid docking station

    game cube controller for SSBB

    LAN adapter instead of using wifi

    silicone cover for mote and chuck
