WII

WII

Hey Comcast.....

 

I have a new WII. I have hooked it up to my television, BUT....I dont know how to get it to come on with the box. Can anyone tell me what to do or push?

Re: WII

The WII should connect to an open video input on your TV.  You then take the TV's remote and change the input select button on the remote to the input you have connected the WII into. 

 

As an example, if you connected the WII to video input 2, then you press the input selector on the TV to input 2 and if the WII is powered up, you will see it on the screen.

 

Do not connect the WII to the video inputs on the front of your cable box, those can not be used.

Re: WII

I have done as you said, placed the connections to the t.v.

1. should the comcast box be on?

2. if i program my t.v., do i program it for vcr or dvd?

3. i tried the aux button on the t.v. remote, but nothing.

 

Any more suggestions?

 

I have an RCA Entertainment Series that is about 10 years old, but works fantastic and used a wii on it a few months ago befor I got the comcast.

Re: WII

The Comcast box has nothing to do with hooking up a WII, it can be on or off as it doesn't matter.

 

A WII plays in 480P, so that is similar to a SD progressive DVD player that also plays in 480P.

 

You don't give enough information on the TV to give any more idea's.  Many TV's have multiple video inputs, so on some, you must press the input button multiple times to find the right video input that the device is connected to.

 

You might want to find a friend or relative that's handy to help you out that can actually look at how you have it hooked up.
