So I got my Wii (US D2C, October batch (came with remote jacket)) few days ago, tried hooking it up to my Toshiba LCD (European PAL) through component connection, using a cheapo cable off DealExtreme, connected through my receiver. To my dismay there was no signal (It did transfer audio signal, BTW), I tried connecting directly to TV, still no signal. Seeing that I had no problem connecting other devices by component to my TV (Both a DVD and a PS2) I thought that the problem was in the cable and asked DX for a replacement, in the meanwhile I connected the Wii with the original composite cable, and got a very, VERY poor signal quality, all grainy and flaky. The replacement arrived last week, I attempted connecting it and still got no signal, thats when I started getting worried. So my possibilities are: * Both the cables I got are busted - improbable, but possible, so nothing is serious * My TV is incapable of displaying the component signal outputted by the Wii - annoying, but nothing I can do about it, aside from switching TVs. * My Wii "detects" the third party cable and doesn't work with it - highly unlikely. I've ordered an original component cable just in case and hope that it works * Worst case scenario - my Wii is somehow defected and can't output a component signal, only way I can check this is on a friends TV (he's connecting a (US) Wii with an original cable so I can just use his setup, but he live a few hours drive away). In that case I'm pretty much screwed, as I'm using a US Wii at a European region with no way of having it checked/repaired/replaced... So, before I shoot myself, or throw the Wii out of the window, any advice? Any checks I can perform to determine the problem's source? Any help would be appriciated, Thanks!
