Need some help. I've got a Sony 40S3000 and recently got a STR-DG 820. I got my PS3 going through HDMI and Sky going through optical.

I'm trying to get my Wii connected to my AV receiver and several threads have suggested connecting the Wii via component to the tv and then phono cables from the tv audio out to the AV receiver but i can get no sound out from the av receiver. What do i need to do to get sound through the AV receiver

Are you also connecting the audio connection from the Wii to the audio input associated with the component input on the TV? Put it another way, do you get sound on the TV from the Wii?

Thanks for the response.

I'm just using a component cable for the Wii that I bought from HMV, it's got no audio connectors, so I'm not getting any sound from the tv.

or if the wii has an optical or digital coax connect that to the amp, the component cable carries no audio

The Wii component cable will have 5 rca outputs: Red, Green and Blue, these are the component video outputs and should be plugged into the component video input of your TV. There will also be Red and white stereo RCA, this is the audio and can either be plugged into your amp, or if the cable is too short into your TV's audio input associated with the component input and then a cable from your TV's audio outputs to the amp (this may be optical or stereo RCA).

The audio input for component on your TV may be a 3.5mm Jack input (like a headphone socket), in which case you will need a stereo RCA to 3.5mm Jack adaptor.

Get a Wii component cable, I just got mine (the madcatz one) from the auction site for £7 and use a component video cable from your amp to your TV.

That way you can also connect your XBox to your amp using component and use the single output (component to your TV).

I have the same amp as you have. There is a bi difference in picture quality. :)

Thanks very much for all your advice. i'll get on and order that cable with the 3 video connectors and 2 audio connectors. There's not much distance between the wii, tv and receiver so i should be able to separate the wires and plug the component into the tv and audio into the amp

Thanks again
