I bought a cheap generic brand off ebay for $6 shipped. Picture was fine if I plugged audio and video into my TV, but if ran audio to my stereo receiver, I got massive interference. Video kept shaking and cutting out. Then I tried the official Nintendo cables and had no such problem.


I'm sure other unofficial cables would work fine, but my advice is to not go for the absolutely cheapest brand. I don't know how but they seem much more prone to interference between devices.

Nice. I already ordered a more expensive set because I didn't know which cheap ones were trustworthy. And I have reservations about whether I should support Monoprice or not after my past experience with them. One set of rca cables had mismatching ends and two other headphone extension cables broke after a month of use.


But it's good that yours worked out. I guess my advice to everybody is to do a little research on the cheap cable before you buy it. I found a few days ago that mine had many reports of EM and RF interference.

I also have Monoprice Wii cables - though mine are the net jacket variety. I have no problems at all w/ them. The Wii connector end was solid, and the cable is of overall high quality.


I buy all my cabling from Monoprice. HDMI, speaker, wii, etc. If they make it, I'll by it.


They're that good.

Agreed - since first finding Monoprice via AVS, they've been my only source for all A/V cables since. Also got a cheap component switcher/hub from them that works w/ a Harmony remote (HD DVD player & Wii share a component input on my display).

Just ordered the Wii cables for the Wii my kids are getting for Christmas. Buying based on comments here. I also have had good luck with Monoprice. $6.50 shipped, if they're no good I'll just toss them.
