    Hello, I was wondering if there is a cable or something that I can connect to the Wii system so I can play a versus game with a friend in two separate TV screens. My character in one TV and the other in other TV. I'd like to know where to find it, the prices, anything...

    No. theres not and will never will be. If you want to do that, you need 2 wiis and an internet connection.

    I don't even understand this question.

    How would this possibly work?

    Multiplayer games have split-screen, or 1 at a time, so you don't really need 2 tv screens.

    It can't. He thinks that if he plugs 2 T.V.s into his Wii, the wii will magically know that there is 2 tvs and instead of split screen multiplayer, each tv will have a full screen of one character.

    Even on Halo that takes 2 Xbox 360's and one connector chord. Nintendo isn't as developed for multiplayer as microsoft, so I don't think they have one.

    (NOTE: I'm not a fanboy, don't flame me for being honest.)

    Actually, there is a way to do it via a capture card and monitor spanning feature on certain video cards.

    Basic Example:

    No, you can't. If you did that, you would get two TVs with the same screen. He wants two tvs with different screens.

    You can if you use the Monitor Spanning feature to span your desktop across both.

    No you can't!!!
    1. The wii is not a computer
    2. The wii does not have the necessary drivers
    3. The wii does not have the processing power. It can barely do one screen... let alone 2...??

    I see what your saying and in theory it should work, however, you don't have the technical knowledge to see the faults.

    In order to do what he wants, the wii would have to simultaneously compute the screens and send them to the T.V. It is not impossible, and can be done IF THE SYSTEM WAS DESIGNED TO. However, it is not. Trust me on this, you can't do it...

    Exactly, 1 wii can not do it. You need two, as I said before...

    And you don't understand my diagram:

    Wii AV input into Capture Card IN a standalone COMPUTER/LAPTOP then use that to span it to 2 monitors while splitting it in half.

    It will not work, end of discussion. If you want to get into a very technical argument and then lose in disgrace, I'd be happy to accomodate you.

    YEsssss you cannnnNN!!!!!!!! :ciappa: :ciappa: :ciappa:
    We do it all the time with video devices at our organization using ONE composite output for presentations. Now I will agree that it will not chop the split screen of a game exactly. You basically do some manual resizing. Just because you have never done it does not mean it cannot be done.

    Sorry but you're wrong mate, there is no reason at all a computer couldn't cut a video input into two and send these seperatley to two screens, the wii is not doing any extra work, and I don't think it would even need a very poweful graphics card to do so; of course when playing spilt screen the graphical quailty is reduced, so it wouldn't look the same as playing LAN with two wiis on two tvs, and setting up this system would be much more costly than buying a tv double the size, so doing this, while perfectly feesable, would be completley pointless
