Connect your Nintendo Wii to your HDTV with GamingZap

Although the Nintendo Wii does not support HD capabilities (producing a maximum display output of 480p) listed below are two options identifying how to connect your Wii to you HDTV for maximum display quality. Which  Nintendo Wii Cable you'll need depends on what  inputs  your television has available.

The  Nintendo Wii Component AV Cable is the simplest solution of all the  Nintendo Wii Cables available. Supporting both Audio and Video content at a much higher capacity, this cable can only be used with HDTVs which support component video inputs (labelled: Y,Cb/Pb.CR/Pr)

Simply connect the A/V connector to the rear of your Wii console and the corresponding colour jacks to your HDTV. The result is a picture quality much clearer and sharper than that of the standard three coloured AV cable that comes with the Wii. The Nintendo Wii Component AV Cable is available soon from GamingZap at £15.99

If your HDTV does not support component cable inputs then the best option for you is an AV to HDMI converter. This simple little adapter connects to the AV port of Wii and allows you to connect your Nintendo Wii to your HDTV using an HDMI cable. The  Nintendo Wii AV to HDMI Converter then converts and up-scales your picture quality automatically to the highest posssible output of 480p - producing crystal clear images and vivid colour contrasts. This is particularly easy for most HDTV owners as televisions typically feature 3-4 HDMI input ports. Currently retailing at £44.99 the  Nintendo Wii AV to HDMI Converter is available now from  GamingZap!
