    Hey guys,

    I've been looking for way to display my Wii on my LCD monitor.
    I've seen things like converter cables / boxes via a composite cables for the Wii, but am looking for any potential cheap alternatives.

    Are there any cables out there that'll adapt only the RCA Composite video (yellow cable) for VGA?

    If it's possible, I plan to deal with the audio using:
    http://www.amazon.com/3-5Mm-Stereo-Splitte...A/ref=pd_cp_e_1

    Also, does anyone have any links for "3.5mm stereo INPUT to 2x 3.5mm stereo PLUG"? (Two male ends, one female y splitter)

    Thanks!

    Try DX for the audio splitter, they have those. As for composite to VGA, thats hard to do and there might be boxes for it I don't know (never needed one) whereas component to VGA is relativly easy and can be done with a single IC and a few side components.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Unfortunately, all I could find from DX are the 2 female / 1 male splitters (I need the opposite).

    I'm aware that component to VGA boxes tend to be easier to setup, but the cost for decent quality ones are a little out of my reach sadly.
