Wii connection to receiver

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I did a search and found a few things to check out when I get home, but I wanted to see what you think.

My current components are Yamaha HTR 6140, Sharp Aquos 42, Xbox 360 and my Asus laptop. Xbox 360 and laptop are connected via HDMI inputs to the receiver, which is then connected to the Sharp through the HDMI out. The Xbox is using the "DTV/CBL" HDMI input on the receiver while the laptop uses the "DVD" input. Everything works great and I can toggle between the Xbox and laptop by toggling the inputs.

I bought a Wii and thought it would be dead easy to connect to the component input labeled "DVR". However, when I do this, I get audio, but no video. The only other component input is the "DVD" input which the laptop is already using through HDMI.

I havent been able to find out if the HTR 6140 is capable of converting the component signal to HDMI. I am also not sure if there is a setting on the Wii I need to select, as I have been using up until now with composite connected straight to the TV.

Any ideas? I appreciate and all suggestions!

Sorry, I made a mistake. I have the HTR 6140, not the 6040. Searching the web now to see if this upconverts. Anyone know?

6140 is still a no go, sorry.

Suggest connecting Wii direct to Tv and run an optical cable or RCA audio out from Tv to receiver.
