    Just bought my son a cheap Wii so he can get his Mario fix.. Using an old Panny TX-L26X10B in the bedroom.
    Tried the basic composite lead, but it would only give b/w and very bad picture. Took the Wii back to the shop who tested it and they said the TV needs setting to 50hz instead of 60hz.
    Any ideas how I can do this?
    However, for now i've got it running through a scart adaptor and it now gives colour and is not too bad, but just feel it could be better.

    Any advice?
    Thanks.

    The best picture quality from a Wii is only available when you connect it via a Component video/audio cable but to be honest it's not a massive step up from the standard Composite connection...which is what you have at the moment when connected via the scart adapter.

    I’ve ordered a hdmi converter as it’ll be the only way I can connect it to the “games room” tv. Be interesting to see what it looks like on a 58” screen.... I’m imagining minecraft..

    Don't think you'll need it.
    I haven't yet come across any modern TV that doesn't have a composite video/audio input.

    The tv has the connections(58dx802b), but they are straight out the back and the back of the tv is almost flush against the wall, so no room. Hdmi will go in the side.
