    Hi, I was wondering if there is a good way to play my Wii with my Computer monitor instead of on the TV.
    I have a SAMSUNG SyncMaster P2250 screen, which does not have any built in speakers.
    If there is like a RCA to monitor cable or something like that, that works, would I also be able to have sound? Thanks!

    a component to hdmi/vga adapter is what you'll need.

    And if that works, what about sound? Should I just plug the yellow cable in and get something to output the sound through normal audio output? (And use with headphones)

    Your post makes it look like you think the yellow cable is used for sound... [​IMG]

    Just in case, the yellow cable is used for video.

    I know, [​IMG]
    I should perhaps have mentioned something about the red and white cable... [​IMG]

    I found a nice little video about how to connect the wii if anyone is interested

    or you can always get a hdmikey but their expensive.

    most component to hdmi converters have outputs for sound also.
