    Sorry but the SVideo cable does not work on European consoles, they have RGB instead. Seems strange I know! And I know people on ebay are selling them but Ebuyer are too!

    There will be converters from rgb to svideo and vga available i should imagine, they might not be cheap though! It's a shame your projector does not have component inputs, that would give you the best picture using the Wii component cable.

    Sorry i have no idea, component is 3 cables - R,G and B. I have no idea what the other two are for, they might be control signals of some sort for the VGA. You could try it but it might not work, i wonder if anyone else can help?

    Should they not be red and white?

    And if it's VGA why would it have sound? VGA does not carry sound.

    Be very careful. Do not mix up RGB with component video. They are different standard. RGB signal can be pass through VGA port with adapter cable, while component input may require a transcoder unless your projector/monitor support component input. Some projectors do but not with most monitors. The plugs on component output are colored red, green, and blue which make people confused with RGB signal. An RGB-VGA adapter cable is much cheaper than a component-VGA transcoder.
    Some European Wii seems to support S-video. Sometimes, the problem is with the S-video cable itself. I got one from GameStop that the shield of the plug is too long and does not work well when I plug into a switch box but on my projector.

    ive done it.. bought a componet cable and connected too the vga rgb input on the projector... picture is very clear.. cant believe it

    the five colours on the VGA cable black and Grey are used for other signals so didnt use them..

    Thanks for all your help

    Looks like your best bet might be RGB scart to VGA then, sound like it's a lot easier and cheaper than component to VGA.

    Edit - it seems you've cracked it - nice one!

    Component output to a projector is the best combination (and the best quality) you can get from a Wii. :yesnod:

    I've tried to state it clear the difference between RGB and component, but it seems he still did not get it. :lol:
