It has been a while since I used the 875 setup menu, but there is a place where you link the audio input to the video input. It doesn't matter too much what video input you use or what audio input you use, you just have to find the setup screen where it lets you specify which audio input you want used with the Video input you have selected. For example:
- Component inputs are labeled 1, 2 and 3. You can use any one of those and you can even rename the input so it says "Wii" when you select it - on screen and on the front panel of the 875.
- That's only 1/2 the setup issue. You have to pick an audio input for the 875 to use with that video input (I don't remember where this is in the setup menus, but it's not that hard to find). There are 3 possible audio input choices for each Component video input....
+ optical 1, 2, or 3 (I don't remember how many the Onkyo has - but you're not using optical so don't select one of these)
+coax 1, 2, or 3 (again, not sure how many there are, could be more or fewer, but again, you aren't using one of these so don't select any of the coax options)
+ then there are the analog audio inputs. These are labeled differently... DVD, CD, VCR, SAT, PHONO, and many others. You can't use the PHONO input - that's only for phonograph cartridges. But you can use just about any other analog stereo input, you just have to specify which one you are connected to so the 875 can pick the right video input and the right audio input so you have both sound and picture.
