    So I don't have a TV but I wanna play my Wii. Sure, there's dolphin with its fancy AA and stuff, but it's not perfect, plus my Wii has all my saves and shiz. I ordered this and tried it but I can get no video on the monitor. I tried it with composite and component cables. No dice. Any help?

    I figured since they were both analog signals it wouldn't matter. But what do I know? That blows.

    Yeah, and here too http://www.amazon.co...ords=RCA+to+VGA

    You can connect all RCA things like PS2 PSX etc to VGA,not just WII

    EDIT:Ohh and one more thing.
    I found it on Youtube.

    Code:
    It doesn't work for NTSC Wiis because VGA uses RGB, which only PAL Wiis support.
    NTSC uses S-Video, which is stupid. I don't understand why Nintendo could just let both
    regions support RGB since VGA is universal.

    No way for what??
    For a NTSC WII you need a S-Video to VGA Box
    And for PAL Wii you need a RCA to VGA Box.

    You can try it but i can't guarantee that's gonna work.
    U can do that or u could buy the expensive HD Box Pro but i font recommend that cause its 55 $(Rip off)

    Too bad there's no component to VGA/DVI.

    Order of quality, HDMI>Component>Composite(also known as RCA)>RF adapter
