I am having a problem using my Wii with my TX-NR3007 receiver. The Wii is the only device connected by component. Everything else is HDMI, and only an HDMI goes to the TV.

The volume is very loud, and does not adjust with the receiver control. Won't even mute. The receiver shows the volume moving, but the sound is blasting. I have hooked the wii directly to the tv and there is no problem. Ideas?

So how did you connect the Wii's audio to the avr if not by HDMI? Optical? Assume you assigned the Wii input on the avr for component video but not sure about the audio. If all is correctly connected, could be defective or perhaps needs a firmware update or maybe just try a reset.

the wii Component cable has audio as well. One connection to Wii, component and two audio cables. all go into input 1 on the AVR. yes, component input 1 is assigned to GAME.

also, did the latest firmware last night. no change,

Hi FORIAMBILL, is this static sound that's blasting or the actual audio from the Wii?

I see, the video is component, the audio composite in that case. One input on the avr? with 5 cables? neat trick that smile.gif

You mention component input 1 is game, what did you do with the audio?

I am a dumbass. I had the audio cables hooked up directly below the component, which are not the audio inputs, but front outputs. all hooked up properly now. damn dummy.

Glad you got it figured out. Checking connections is a good start to a problem but we don't always do that because we're sure we did that part right, eh? smile.gif
