I've got a Wii, and like most people was playing it with the cables that came in the box. The talk is mostly about component cables, but with no HD set, my increased quality salvation would come in the form of S-Video cables (which I have everything going through (DVD player, 360, TiVo) anyway.
So I was waiting for this to become available in my local Worst Buy. In the meantime I read online where you could use your Gamecube cable with your Wii. So I went and located my old Gamecube S-Video cable, and plugged it in.
The thing works - to a point. Everything is in Black & White! Ugh. It is a much crisper signal, but no color. I was really hoping I'd ditched the need to spend another $20/$25 on an Svideo cable. I went through all the settings in the Wii, and there was nothing relevant to this. This is the same cable I used when I had my Gamecube on the same TV, so I would think the cable's either become broken in storage, or it really can't be used with the Wii.
Anyone else run into this? Is there a way out with this, or am I stuck buying another cable?
