I bought this wii 2 hdmi adapter that has the features:

Wii to HDMI, a converter for the Wii console, outputs video and audio in full digital HDMI format and supports all Wii display modes (NTSC 480i 480p, PAL 576i). Plug and play for true-to-life video/audio effects on your TV/monitor.

It can convert the standard Wii output into an HDMI 1.3 compatible device allowing audio and video to be carried over a single HDMI cable.
It detects Wii display modes including NTSC 480i, 480p, PAL 576i automatically, and upscales them to HDMI 720P or 1080P.
The extra 3.5mm audio socket brings your convenience to connect headphone or speaker. You can enjoy games in night without worrying to disturb others.
Video and audio in full digital HDMI format, no transmission loss.
Supports all Wii display modes (NTSC 480i 480p, PAL 576i).
HDMI upscale to 720p or 1080p high definition output.
Provides advanced signal processing with great precision, colors, and resolutions.
LED indicator shows current display mode and status.
No power adaptor, no messy cordsjust one HDMI cable.
Works with DVI monitor.
Plug and play.

Input: Wii console input
Output: HDMI female & 3.5mm audio
Supports all Wii display modes: NTCS 480i, 480p, PAL576i
Resolution: 720P or 1080p
Item size: 7.5*3.5*1.5cm
Item weight: 25g
Package size: 13.5*7.8*2.2cm
Package weight: 41g

But my tv, a 32-IN Insignia LCD
says no signal when i use the adapter. My tv specs say:

SUGGESTED scan rates for hdmi: 1080i, 720p,480p,480i

Because 1080p is not on the list, could this be the cause why the adapter is not working?

I don't know how much you paid for the device, but it's beyond me how they take and "analog" 480p video signal and an "analog" stereo audio signal and magically convert it to digital video and audio.

Anyway... try using 720p on the magic box. If that fails, use 480p. If 480p fails, use component cables and return the box for a refund.

Are you talking about the ViewHD Wii to HDMI converter? That product outputs either 720P or 1080P.

To use it, your HDTV must support 720P or 1080P.

If your TV is 1080i, then doesn't assme it will do 720P.

Check the manu, a lot of 1080i TVs don't support 720P.

You would probably be better off using component cables and then hooking the TV up to an AV receiver using the digital audio out jack, this way at least the sound would be digital. Most HDTV's convert video from analog inputs to digital anyway.
