Does your amp have scart input??

I would have thought it would be better to connect the Wii's scart to the tv.

Yes you won't be able to see the Wii unless the amp has the ability to convert from analogue Scart to HDMI.

The Scart is often just for audio in. What dvd/amp is it?

The scart socket on the amp is probally a video out socket for customers who don't have HDMI sockets on their tv's.

The amp/dvd is a Samsung HTZ310R. The thing is we want to utilise the speakers while playing the Wii. We are currently at work and have not got the Samsung HTZ310R infront of us and we cant find anywhere on the internet that tells us if it is capable of receiving a video signal from the Wii and processing it thru the HDMI cable.

My guess is that it will be able receive the sound via the red and white coaxial cables but a separate cable will be have to be run for the yellow video cable direct to the TV. Am I right?

This is the updated diagram.

This is the way,I reckon, the Wii should be wired if the amp cannot convert the Wii video output thru the HDMI out to the TV. This way the sound is being run thru the amp but the video is going straight to the TV.

Am I Right?

Link to manual.

It does have a stereo RCA input, so that will work for the Wii. You don't say what tv you have but if it has a component input (red, green and blue RCA connection), then I would get the Wii component cable, it will give you a much better picture than the single yellow composite video connection.

you cant do that, with this system.
hdmi out,is just that, hdmi out,it wont take composite,or component and feed them out through hdmi.
you would be looking to spend a lot more money on a receiver with the ability to do that.
connect the wii directly to the tv,for video,and connect its audio ins,to the samsung,is the best you could hope to achieve,with this.
and use component for the wii, as composite is terrible.
