Connecting a Wii to the insignia NS-32E570A11

I just bought the NS-32E570A11 AND need to connect the Wii and the Nintendo Box . How should I proceed?

Hello YANA,

Welcome to Community@Insignia™!

Connect the Wii's AV cable to the port on your game console and then to the component connection on your new TV.  More details can be found in your Wii Operations Manual for Systems Setup.

Thanks, for your answer, but the AV cable has 3 plugs (white,red and yellow), and the TV set has different configuration. Do you really know what the TV set component connection looks like?

Hello again YANA,

 

A schematic for the TV can be found in the TV owner's manual.  If you need a copy, it can be found here.  All you need do is connect the yellow, white and red connectors to the same colored inputs on the TV where it says "Component In."

I don't think you understood what Yana was saying John.  The component connectors on the TV don't have the same colors as the cable that comes with the Wii.  I'm having the same problem.  On top of that when I do get any kind of a connection it's black and white not color.  I looked through the Wii settings and it only has 2 options for video;  480i and 480p.  It's defaulted to 480i and won't allow me to set it to 480p.  This model TV is of course 1080p.  Game mode on or off doesn't make a difference.

Hello all,

Actually, this TV will only come with a Component input but no composite (AV) input was included on this particular model. Unfortunately this will cause you not being able to connect your Wii or getting a black and white picture at the most (since one of the Component connections will gather the shape information, but not the color one causing the B&W picture).

 

In this case, you will need to get the Wii component adapter, to get the highest quality picture from your Nintendo Wii and your HD TV.

 

If it was useful, and you liked it, Kudo it!

Thank you,
Guille

I have a suggestion... Perhaps Insignia should inform sales people of the lack of a composite hookup on this tv so people don't buy these televisions if they need composite hookups.  Most every other HD flat screen I have reviewed after buying this one and being dissapointed has composite inputs...   Very dissapointing to buy an expensive tv for Christmas just to find out you cannot hook your son's Nintendo Wii up to it...  Very frustrating and not likely to recommend this television to anyone.  Especially after the digital audio output issue my television is having requiring an in-home service already as well.  Can you say lemon?
