I just bought a Wii this week and since I have a 56" HDTV, I also ordered the Nyko Wii HD Link Component Cable from Amazon. I had no problems using the standard cables that can with the Wii. The Wii played fine. But when I hooked up the HD cables, Wii came on the screen but in black and white. So I continued to settings and changed it from 480i to 480p. Then the screen goes black. I figured maybe I didn't put the plugs in right as the HD cable doesn't have the standard red, white and yellow plugs (they have red, blue & green plus 2 extra for sound). I tried all the combinations with no luck.
Any one run into this problem or am I just missing something? Could the wires be defective? Any help would be welcome.
