    I have a TV and DVD player hooked up and I would like to be able to hook up the Wii as well, but each piece of hardware only has one set of plugs to take input or output.

    Right now you have the DVD with one set of video/audio output (yellow, red, white)
    The Wii special cable with yellow, red, white end
    And TV with video/audio input (yellow, red, white)

    Is there any way that I can get something so that I can plug the Wii into the DVD player and then the DVD into the TV? Right now because there is only one set of ports on each device I can only have the DVD into the TV or the Wii into the TV.

    You can pick up an Audio/Video switchbox (I got mine at Wal-Mart for about $20).
    One set of cables (yellow, red, white) goes from the TV to the Switchbox (output)
    One set of cables goes from the Wii to the switchbox input1
    One set of cables goes from the DVD to the switchbox input2
    One set of cables goes from the ??? to the switchbox input3

    If you want to use the Wii you just change the switchbox to that number (#1) and away you go, you want to use the DVD change the switchbox to that number (#2) and if you got another unit that has it's own cables then you plug that one into #3.
    Hope that helps...
