I know this has been asked a few times, but even after a search I can't quite work it out. I tired connecting the red, white and yellow leads directly into my amp yesterday, expecting it to deliver both picture and audio, but I got nothing.

I've read that the red and whute cables need to go into the amp, and the yellow into the TV, but how is it suppose to reach the back of the TV? I expect I need to but some sort of extension lead?

Also, read there is some benefit by connecting via a component cable?

It'll look far better over component. What amp are you connecting to?

Oh it's just a JVC amp as part of an "all in one" my parents have in their lounge. It has 3 connections, and annoyingly the 3rd is on the front (Sky HD and BD player connected at the rear). But I suppose it's just a small matter of connecting it back up everytime the Wii needs to be used.

How do I go about connecting with a component cable and would this do the job? Component Connection Cable For Use With Wii

Just checked again now, and there's no component connection on the front. Only red, white, yellow composite, S Video and optical. Damn.
