I don't think you have a problem with your wii console and I doubt you have a problem with your set so I do have some suggestions for you. But first, it sounds like you own a nice HDTV and you are wanting to use the composit (red, yellow, white) cables that came with your Wii console correct? From what I have seen, most HDTV's offer at least one AV Out port and one AV In port for standard def composit cables. Are you sure that you are plugging the wii composit cables into the correct AV In port?Originally Posted by Gregg89
Most HDTV's are starting to offer more component and HDMI ports for 480p (wii), 780i, 780p, 1080i and 1080p Hi Def viewing and at least one S-Video and composit port for standard resolution (480i).
Since you own a nice HDTV, I would make sure that you are not trying to plug into the AV Out port but into the AV In port. I would also look into purchasing some component cables (around $20.on up) so that you can experience the wii's best picture resolution (480p). Once you purchase your component cables (5 connectors - red, wht, pink, blue, green) be sure to connect them into your sets component ports and then make sure to set your wii settings to 480p and your wii screen settings to widescreen.
