Hello All


I need help hooking up my Wii through my Pioneer VSX-72TXV receiver with Digital Vidio Convertion. At this time I am using a single HDMI to connect to my monitor and would like to run the Wii signal through the HDMI cable as well. I have not been ale to figure out the settings on the receiver to make this work. Do i need a cable other than what cam with the Wii? Any input would be appreciated.


Thanks!

Here's a quote from a review on that receiver:

Quote:
In addition to an A/V composite and S-Video monitor output, the receiver includes component and HDMI video outputs. The Pioneer VSX-72TXV can convert video and output any standard analog input (composite, S-Video, or component) via the component outputs and the HDMI jack. Theoretically, that means you need only a single connection to your TV. But there's a catch for HDMI users: analog video is converted to digital for HDMI output, but the resolution remains at 480i, as does the 72TXV's onscreen display. If your HDTV can handle 480i HDMI signals, there's no problem; but if you have one of the many older sets that can't, you'll get a blank screen when trying to watch analog video sources--for example, your VCR or cable box or any video source that's not outputting 480p progressive-scan or 720p/1080i high-def.

Sounds like you need to pick up the component cables for the wii (Many people recommend the cables from monoprice, they are cheap and work well). Then you'll need to set up your wii to output 480p, and in theory your receiver will pass it through to HDMI.

Exactly - plus the overall color & a tiny bit of sharpness occurs when running Wii over component. Won't elminiate those Wii Sports jaggies, but it'll ceertainly look better than w/ the stock cables.


A 2nd recommendation for Monoprice's set - same quality as the Nintendo ones for a fraction of the price.
