I recently purchased the 616 when my last receiver finally crashed after 10 years.  Needless to say, a lot has changed since then!


I like the fact that I can now run HDMI along with component video through the receiver so I only have one HDMI going to my television (at least that's my assumption) so I only have to make the switch on the receiver and not have to change inputs on the tv as well.


The problem I'm having is that I'm trying to hook-up my Wii (I haven't played it in months, but because I have it I feel the need to hook it up).  Nintendo might have come out with an HDMI connection by now for the Wii, but I currently have the component cables, which I've connected to the component in and the game audio jacks.  When I switch the receiver to game, I only have audio and no video.


I thought this receiver would upconvert the component to run through the HDMI out?  Is that correct and I just missed a step somewhere?  I see there's component out jacks, which I would prefer not to use so that there's only one cable going to the tv, and one input used.


Any help would be appreciated.

Hi jnath92, the NR616 require a 480i signal from component (or composite) in order to up-convert to HDMI (see the chart on page 91 in OM). So you need to set the Wii tv resolution output to "Standard 480i".
