the only thing that's a little tricky is making sure you don't get any "overlap" with the input assignments. For example, HDMI-1 is set to "DVD" by default, but so is Component-1. So if you hook up the Blu-Ray to HDMI-1, and you hook up the Wii with component cables to Component-1, but don't do anything else, they will BOTH be "assigned" to the "DVD" input name.
But, the key thing to understand is that you are free to reassign these inputs to whatever "name" you want. So you don't need to physically rearrange the cabling, all you need to do is reassign "Component-1" to some other name and use that for the Wii. With the Wii, you need a pair of analog audio inputs (red/white), so make sure to use one of the "names" which have RCA inputs (DVD, SAT/CBL, VCR, or DVR).
For your setup, this is what I recommend:
1. Blu-Ray plugs into HDMI-1, leave it as the "DVD" input (you can rename to "BLU RAY" if you so choose)
2. Xbox 360 plugs into HDMI-2 (assuming it's an HDMI xbox), leave it as the "HDP" input (again, just rename it to "XBOX 360")
3. Cable box plugs into HDMI-3, just leave it as "SAT/CBL".
4. Wii plugs into component video #1, but you must reassign that to either "VCR" or "DVR" (because DVD and SAT/CBL have already been used). see pg 32-33 of the manual. then rename it to say "Wii".
Whichever one you choose for the Wii, plug in the red/white audio cables into the corresponding red/white RCA input jacks for either "DVR" or "VCR" (remember that these "old school" composite inputs are NOT assignable, so you have to match up the name to whatever you assign... if you decide the Wii will be on the "DVR" input you need to plug in the audio cables into the ones that say "DVR")
that should do it!
