    I'm looking for a cheap way to get the Wii over HDMI. The reason being I want to get a Black Magic Intensity Capture card, but it only supports HDMI, and the Pro version is $100 more to support component.

    Anyone have an ideas/suggestions?

    There's an S-video to HDMI converter but if I remember that's going to set you back like a 100$ so at that point stick with Pro?

    Besides HDMI for the Wii is like putting nice rims on your hugo.

    You'd need something like this:
    Code:

    And they really don't come much cheaper than that.

    Edit2: This one's on sale for 50$ but with shipping and the like, your still better off with getting Pro.
