    Cable Problem

    Hey guys, first post, be gentle

    i have a wii and i have a 3d TV which is mounted on my wall.

    As you know, you can connect the wii through scart or the 3 coloured cables.

    Now, on the back of my TV, i have the slots for them, but if i plug the wii inm with either the 3 jack plugs or the scart, the tv does not sit flush against the wall.

    ive looked at the 360 degree scart bends but its still too wide considering the jack plugs still make the tv not sit flush.

    my only option is to use the HDMI slots as they are on the side of my tv and not on the back.

    so my question. what is the cheapest way to convert either the scart to HDMI cable OR the jack plugs to hdmi cable so i can use my wii. if its possible?

    thanks for reading

    Dan

    I don't think the Wii will cooperate with the HDMI cable.

    Damnit Trago...

    There's definitely a solution for this, but I ain't familiar with it since I've never had to deal with any such things. Composite cables or some nonsense like that...

    I think you should look at getting a tv mount that fits your television properly. It would probably be less expensive and look better as well. There should be no reason for your cables to interfere with how the tv mounts to your wall. Perhaps you could upload a picture so we could see your setup.
