    I've just bought an S-Video Cable and connected it to my WII., But sadly all I get is a jumpy black-and-white screen.
    My TV works fine with S-Video cables when connected via my DVD and Freeview Digital Receiver!
    Is the fault to do with my WII, the Cable or TV?
    [I've tried configuring the WII to send different Signals but no luck so far]

    AZ_Wii_Tard, it looks like you are giving the same response to any questions in this forum.:shocked:

    For the S-video problem, did you try switching back and forth between INPUT and TV mode? Which S-video cable are you using? I know some S-video cables for Wii (e.g. GameStop cable) have longer sleeve and thicker plug that does not plug in well. Try to push harder. I had problem to plug it into my AV switch box but it works fine on my Sony projector. Anyway, the difference between S-video and composite is rather small.

    To an extent yes I am posting the same link. But some are specific to the problem people ask. The online help area on Nintendo's website is very helpful and probably would answer 95% of all problems people are having with there Wii or accessories. Do a search before you post problems that most likly have been posted before.

    Did you find anything regarding this S-video problem there? I don't.

    there is a section on hooking up component cable and a step by step how to on setting everything up. Check it out. I have found many good things about the Wii that I did not know. If you don't find anything that helps there, contact Nintendo. By the way is your s-video cable a Nintendo Brand Cable or 3rd party?

    Find a way to connect the luma pin on the svideo cable to a composite input (don't forget the sheild too) and it should work in black and white to verify the signal is clean

    By any chance you got an European Wii that does not support S-video?

    I live in the UK so I assume it will be a European WII.
    What make you say they do not support S-video ?

    anyway I bought a "Nintendo Wii S-Video AV Cable Lead' from this site (they tell me they have sold 100's without any problems.. http://www.morpethmobiles.co.uk/proddetail.asp?prod=/A4/SD
