How to Connect Wii with the TV for the First Time

Feb 10, 2008
You can't simply have the Wii all to yourself literally-you have to make use of it. But then, how? One of the best ways is to connect it to an output device, preferably a TV.

Normally, when you're going to purchase a Wii, also included in the package is a multi-out plug for AV connection. It's highly necessary so you can connect your consoles not only to televisions but to VCRs as well. How can you check if your TV can connect to your Nintendo Wii?

The best technique is to look at the back of your TV. If you will notice some colored sockets with an 'Input' label, then you know that you can do appropriate connections. The same strategy can be used when it comes to your VCR.

More Tips for Your TV Connection

There are a number of things that can help you out when you're trying to connect your Wii to your TV:

- The AV inputs are usually round sockets made of metal.
- They come in three types of colors, such as white, yellow, and red. The red color is for right audio input while the white one is for mono sound or left audio input. The yellow, meanwhile, is for the video input. There are a number of televisions, however, that only have one audio input.
- Spot the one that is marked A/V In. Don't try to connect your Wii to anything with a label 'Out' or else, it won't function at all.
- Use the color codes when you're going to insert the plugs found in your Wii A/V cable. If there are no labels, get your television manual. Usually, they are well identified there.
- If the cables are already inserted in their proper places and you have already turned on the Wii console, you should locate the Input Select of your TV. This way, you can start viewing or selecting your favorite game. You can make use of a TV remote control for it, or you can simply manipulate the front panel located in the television. Press the button for TV/Video. If there are many input channels, just continue pressing the button until you can find the Wii console display.

For Your Computer Monitors

There are a number of people who make use of computer monitors rather than their television when you're going to play Nintendo Wii. However, this is going to be initially difficult as home consoles of Nintendo are only meant to be used in VCRs and home televisions this, of course, with the help of RF or A/V connectors. Since monitors of your PC dont have any of these, you need to look for alternatives. One of these is through the use of a PC TV card.

This is when you insert a TV card inside your PC so you can connect the console to the card. However, you should take note that you may not get the right image quality youre looking for in your Wii.
