I have read a previous thread about this but im getting problem connecting the wii via component 3 and audio through BD i was trying to video assingn the component 3 to the bd button but i can only get audio no video on any input for the wii i also tryed this with stand video cable(just the yellow one) and that didnt work. Is this all because i have only hdmi out to the telly an not component or video ?

Yes, the 800 will not upconvert analogue signals to HDMI. Hence you need a component cable from the reciever to the TV to get the video to pass through. If you want upconversion the cheapest reciever that does this is the Yamaha 565.

Thanks mate i think the cable might be cheaper than a new amp seeing as i have only had the 800 for 2 months
