    Does anyone know if I can connect my Wii straight to my HD TV using a single cable from Wii to HDMI port on TV?:confused:

    Well the Wii doesn't have an HDMI output so no.

    Sorry if that's a silly answer but I'm a bit confused!

    Hello TJUK1

    Probably best to ask why you want to connect the Wii to the Digital (HDMI) Input on your Display?

    The Wii Outputs an Analogue signal on SCART (RGB+Composite sync) or 3RCA (Component) using proprietary cables - its likely that your HDTV has the required SCART or 3RCA Inputs so no real need to integrate the Wii with the Digital (HDMI) Input on your Display.

    You can employ active conversion to get the Wii (Analogue) signal (Video + Audio) into your Digital (HDMI) socket - though its relatively expensive; see

    It may work - over on AVS there is a thread where someone has that unit working on a short direct connection to the TV but not when connected via an HDMI Switch!

    It may do. Oh right, have to take a look. Not sure whether you would also need a 3.5 coming from that adapter for the audio as well. Wanting to get my Wii connected soon!!

    The 3.5mm will be the Audio Input to the Converter - the Converter takes Analogue video + audio (from the Wii) and converts both to the HDMI digital out!

    If you want audio via an Amp rather than the TV you can connect the Wii audio direct to the amp rather than to the Converter.
