    You need to get a converter to go from the composite (yellow video and red and white audio) to the coax cable. Should be found for under $15 anywhere they sell tvs. I have seen many at resale shops like Good Will.

    Set the knob to "Auto"; it will automatically change video modes to match the console's output, in this case NTSC.

    But yeah, get the Coax-->Composite adapter mentioned above.

    Go to any electronics or large general store and ask for an RF modulator. There not hard to find.

    While there *are* different types of RF modulators, almost all of them will convert RCA (composite) to coaxial connections. Some just also have other inputs such as s-video. But there isn't a specific "type" of RF adaptor that you want to look for. Even an old VCR will work to bridge the gap.

    There really is only one type. Hook the cables you have from the Wii to it then it to the tv. Also hook you're tv feed to it if desired. Change tv to channel 3. Play Wii.

    Edit Sniped - like Vulpes says, there really is only one type for practical purposes.

    The source that feeds your TV with channels, such as cable, antenna, satellite etc.
