Hi everyone. This is the first time I've posted a message here but have read several threads previously when been stuck! I was bought a wii for Christmas but having no end of trouble hooking it up. First tried to do it through panny blu-ray (BT200) but upon reading threads realised not going to work so I've ordered the official wii component cable to go into rear of TV. Looking at the rear of the TV in the manual (it's on the wall with slimline bracket - not such a good idea when you've got cables to plug in and out) it appears to only have 2 component ports. The 3 video ports have been merged into 1 and same with the audio. Do I need to get a converter too??? One day I'll get to play....... Thanks for reading. Hope I haven't waffled too much!

Might be best to post in this thread.

It sees a whole lot more traffic on cables than you would get in this bit of the forum. :smashin:
