    Ok guys another question (i know i know i ask alot of them xD ) I tired google but didnt get much help so i thought id ask you guys.I am trying to hook my Wii up to my pc monitor and atm i have serval boxes/adapters but cant seem to figure this out :(

    My monitor takes HDMI,DVI and VGA and i have an HDMI to component converter but my Wii still is not showing up on my monitor for some reason?

    Yeah, if nothing you already have is working, the Wii2HDMI adapter is probably the way to go. Look on the right side of this page, someone's got it for under $20 shipped from in the US.

    Well with the Wii U coming out in just a few days and it can play my Wii games im just give it up for now cause by time i ordered anything and got it in the mail Wii U would be just around the corner. I still dont understand why the HDMI to Componant converter didnt work?
