    You might be able to buy cables for the Wii that has S-video input. Head scratcher for me. Myself, I have a 32" Magnavox that I use for my monitor and tv, switch it back and forth by the push of a button. :), I bought it at Shopko for 300 on sale. It's HD too, although I've never used that function.

    TortillaChip520: I dont think its going to reach either way. You should make your own. Its really easy to do! You only need a stick, 4 IR LED, some wire and a battery pack that holds 2 AA batteries.

    yeah, but i'd rather use your usb card idea instead.

    Careful, some USB tv carts will introduce too much lag. You might want to look for a the old Adaptec Gamebridge. I have one and it works ok for what you're trying to do. It's not at all high quality though, it's like any other standard def display. It doesn't look that great, but it does allow you to play game systems on a computer with virtually no lag.

    As for getting signal to a projector. Again, through a PC you're going to get too much lag. You need to directly connect. There are cables that can do this for you. I have a projector setup at home that I play Wii on.
