    Hi Folks.

    I've recently got a Denon AVR1907 and have connected my Nintendo Wii via component. The problem is i can't seem to get any sound out.

    I realise i'm probably doing something stupid but this my first receiver and i'm still learning. I find the Denon instructions to be a bit vague.

    If anyone has a simular setup, your advice would be much appreciated.

    Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this, i've also posted on the wii forum.

    Thanks in advance

    That would be beacuse component is a picture only interface and does not carry sound.

    Thanks for the reply.

    The wii component cable has audio leads as well so i connected them into one of the audio inputs on the receiver. Is this right?

    I can get a picture but regardless if which input i select still no sound.

    Sorry again if this seems a bit daft.

    Yes, that's right, you need to connect the red and white audio out leads of the Wii to the analogue audio in of a spare inout on the AV amp and then select that on the 1907. Have you plugged it into the correct sockets?

    You may also have to configure the selected source to the correct input. So for example, if you plugged in the Wii analogue audio outs to the stereo audio in for the DVD on the 1907, you *may* have to configure that source on the 1907 to use analogue in rather than digital. Hope this helps!

    Regards,

    Thanks guys, i think i'm getting there.

    I have the component leads into Component 1 and i have the audio outputs into CD in. I have sound or no picture or picture with no sound!

    How do i get the two working together?
    Should i try a different audio in?
    Can i assign the audio in to component 1?

    So many questions.........sorry.:(

    You need to specify which sound input you are using when on component 1. Does ocmponent one have a name on it like dvd etc???? trhey usually do even though you can chnage it to whatever you want. if it is dvd for example then plug the audio plugs into the dvd analogue sockets it should work first time then, if its aux then find the aux phono sockets

    Thanks peeps, i've cracked it.

    Component 1 is just labelled as component 1 but in the instruction book, it shows a DVD being connected into component 1 and audio input marked DVD/in. It seems illogical to me but then again, this is my first receiver. I'll read the manual...AGAIN and see if it makes any more sense to me.

    Thanks for your interest and time in my silly little problem.
