I recently bought an Onkyo HT-S3300 and have it all set up. I didn't have any problems except for when I tried hooking up my Wii. I have tried everything I can think of but I can not get the video to work. I can get the Wii audio to work, but there is no video. If anyone has any suggestions to how I should connect the Wii it would be greatly appretiated. Thanks!

How is it connected? How is the TV connected? The receiver may not be able to convert the Wii analog video to HDMI, which could cause issues depending on how you hooked it up.

HDTV connected to receiver with HDMI, so the receiver has to convert component to HDMI or you don't get video, right? And perhaps this receiver can't convert the analog component video to HDMI, which would explain your issue.

Hi Doughead, the HT-S3300 does not upconvert analog video to HDMI.


You will need to connect a component video output cable to Tv.

Thanks!

Hi alphaace, since S3300 does not upconvert analog video to HDMI just connect the Wii (video and audio) directly to Tv and run an optical cable from Tv to receiver.

Following the advice from JChin will be the easiest solution, but assuming your TV doesn't have an optical audio out, here's what to do:


First, I'm assuming by 'component' you mean red/blue/green. If you only have a yellow cable, this is even easier (the principle is the same.)


Second, use this for reference: http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/...5b7d2e7f163436


Go to page 8, which is what I'll be referencing.


Plug your audio cables in as you normally would, then plug the component cables in to "IN-1" and connect a second set of component cables to "OUT" (both of these are on the left side, in a box that says "COMPONENT VIDEO."


Connect the second set of cables to your TV. The remote that comes with your system does not have the ability to use macros--you will need to manually change the input on your TV each time you want to switch between the Wii and Cable (or whatever your other input is.) Your remote can control your TV (if you input the correct remote codes, see the owner's manual for that), so on the bright side it'll be down to 3-4 button presses.


Best of luck!

Hi Everyone,


Thanks for everyone's help! With some tinkering I got it to work and now Super Mario Galaxy 2 plays in surround sound. AWESOME.


I've just ordered the RGB cables for the wii to hopefully increase the resolution to 480p and make it look even better. Thanks again!
