    i want to connect my wii's standard composite video cable to a projector that only has VGA and DVI ports. and i was wondering if i could just use some cable with the right ends or will i have to buy some sort of a converter box...

    here is the cord i saw... there was quite a few from different stores (but the fact that you can plug in composite audio cords seems fishy...

    I guess this cord is for some graphicscard which have a special VGA port which ist a TV out port at the same time...this won't help you with your wii..you will need such a converter box

    You'll need a device to convert the signal. Having an adaptor to convert the cable isn't enough. [​IMG]
