    So I as my PC Monitor doesnt have HDMI or 2 DVI, i decided to buy one of these.

    So i put the DVI in my Monitor and the HDMI of my Wii U in the Adapter, it worked but after 40 min my screen went just black.

    So my Wii is not capable of outputting HDMI, no matter which calbe which settings or which TV i tested everything.

    Now the question : Is just the Output of the Wii broken or more? and can i replace it?

    Have you tried to connect another HDMI?
    Try to cleaning the pins of the HDMI.
    You can replace it. but you need to open you Wii U and solder it!

    I'm pretty sure the wii u doesn't work with such devices.

    Well if you mean a different HDMI Cable/Input @tv yes i did, and still the same result.
    Could something different @the board be broken or is it surely the HDMI output.
    And can i buy any HDMI output port or does it have to be a specific one?

    It's not even working without it, its like broken, its not working standalone directly.
    Im playing with 480p via SCART and this delay sucks.

    That box might have fried the hdmi chip on the wii U. What was the price of that box? You can always use the 480p video cables.

    Black screen generally means, can't handle resolution\refresh rate,
    and it could be that your monitor can't negotiate acceptable values in return.
