    Hey,

    I got my Wii connected to my tv with a component cable.
    But I also want to connect it to my speakers (at the same time) so when if I want to have good sound I'll turn on my speakers and when I want it to be quiet I just leave the sound coming from my tv [​IMG]

    The issue is, all my other devices have multiple outputs but the Wii doesn't.
    Now my question is: how do I connect my wii to both tv and speakers?

    Regards,

    MawGoomba

    Thanks but I tried multiple browser and that link gives me a blank page.

    Edit:

    I think this was the right link?

    That's just a cable to expand the lenght, I need it to connect it to my tv AND speakers so more like a multiplier or something.

    Sorry about that

    Also that's what it does. One end plugs into your stereo and the wii cables plug into the other end of it. so the wii video will display on TV and sound will go to stereo.

    well the sound will come out through TV also even with the stereo connected. So if you turn off the stereo like late at night you will still get sound from the TV =).

    Also what you need is red/white cables like the pic i showed you but the male connectors on both ends so 4 male connectors 2 on each side. 2 go into the TV and 2 into your stereo.

    Edit: If your TV only has 1 red/white input then you will also need to get a female to female splitter which looks like this

    You need to buy/make 2 RCA Y adapters, male to 2 female.

    If you buy it you will probably need 2 more basic male female cables as an extension.

    I made some because radio shack didn't have any Y cables, and I had some extra cables, but they are cheap as dirt.

    Just a quick one but many TVs have audio out these days (or at worst a headphone port).
    Equally if you wanted you can usually attach a lead to the TV speakers and fire that out through the TV.

    I am assuming you checked this but in case it was a "unable to the see the forest for the trees" moment you have this post.

    Ye, the audio out only outputs the tv channels not my hdmi, av inputs.
    And I don't like the sound when connecting it to the 3.5mm port, but thanks for thinking with me [​IMG]

    go an find some rca splitters, 2male/1 female this will solve your problem. run the male end out, from tv, plug rca end to female from wii, an then run rca to the reciever rca.auto in. if you have satalite, yea the have component rca. but while using the dvi for the tv, you can still use the auto out. run rca cables from auto out to reciever. both of these methodes will work. i have it done to mine. rca from cable box component/auto out, to reciever auto in. an my splitters are at the auto in on the cable box.

    I think I just plug this into my tv, then the cables in from my composite cables then another one in that i'll connect to my speakers.
