    I got a Wii but my tv does not have the 3 wires (red yellow and white ones) that you plug in. I've been trying to find an adapter like they have for all the others that just plug into back of your TV and its on thing but I can't find one.

    Is there even one out?

    If so where can I buy it?

    Thanks alot! :)

    no offense...but what T.V. doesn't have a red white and yellow plug-ins on the TV?!?!?! I understand if its a HD TV..most only have red blue and green (or something like that). I know best buy will have and adapter..but if your T.V. is HD go out and buy the red blue and green cables.

    *didn't add*
    ^^^^^^^
    if a DVD player is hooked up to your T.V. then the DVD player should have red white and yellow plug-ins.

    I believe it is the old 80's tv. I have been here before. Ask around at game stores. You never know, the GameCube/N64 cord could do the trick.

    I have a couple TVs like that, where there's only a coax cable input, with no RCA input (red, white, yellow). Go down to WalMart, Radio Shack, Target, etc. and buy an "RF Modulator" for $10 to $20. The cable from the wall and the cables from your Wii plugh into it, and a coax cable goes from the modulator to the TV. Easy fix.

    OMG ameatures, theres only 2 or 3 good posts here, ALOT of oldish tv's (say 5-10 years old) don't have those 3 pins, instead they have a scart socket, which is the same thing, and you get a scart adapter in the box with the wii

    Agreed on the bad posts, he obviously had an older TV and needed an RF Modulator so he could plug his wii just into the coaxial input.

    But 5-10 years?! I'd say more like 10-20 years. I have an old TV for snes/n64 from about 92', and that has the Yelllow/White RCA inputs (no red input, no stereo) and that's 14 years old.

    YOU HAVE A VERY OLD TV. I know maybe it's not a possibility but i think it's time to invest in a new one. Check out Best Buy's insignia brand, very cheap but still decent quality.

    cheap tvs about 5 years old won't have the inputs it doesn't necessarily mean its ancient and without stereo... mine didn't but my 32" tv was only 30 bucks. i got a RF modulator that connects to the RF input in the back of the tv andyou can have as many as 3 different composite inputs.

    The 20" tv we are using for the Wii & Xbox was bought around '92 from Sears and the RCA inputs don't work anymore, that why I bought a modulator. Still has a great picture and keeps on ticking! The off-brand $130 27" WalMart TV in our livingroom has front/rear AV input, Game button, stereo, etc. but lets see how long it lasts :-/

    Do you have a VCR with the inputs? If so you can run it thru the vcr

    What is the average of posters on here? I would be surprised if a 5 year old tv wouldn't have RCA inputs on it but it's not impossible. I'm not aware of what kinds of hook ups older TV's outside the US have, so a SCART is not something I've ever heard of.

    If you have a VCR, then use the inputs on it, it should have some inputs on the back at least. If that fails, then get an RF modulator (as others have mentioned) but I would recommend one that automatically detects and switches. You'll need to put your TV on channel 3 or 4 for them to work.

    DUDE, if he has the money to buy a wii then go spend some money to buy a new T.V, unless ur a 5 year old not knowing that game consoles use those.

    My advice
    1) BUY A NEW TV

    or...

    2) THROW OUT UR WII.
    I like option 2 best ^_-
