How to run component cables for wii?

by grc24 / February 16, 2008 4:05 AM PST

Hi all!

Maybe this has been posted here already but....
The component cables sold for the wii aren't made to connect to other components that are more than a few inches apart. I want to run the audio cables to my receiver which is at least 6ft. away from my TV. (I have to plug the video into the TV ) The A/V cables that came with the wii can be separated. The component cables are bound together and can't be separated. Does anyone know of any other cables that can be bought for the wii that will work? Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

Just get some extensions

Just go to your local Radio Shack or whatever you might have that's of a similar nature, and get some extension cables. Preferably individual cables so you can minimize the amount of extra cable sitting around. Connect one end to the audio plugs on the Wii, the other end to the audio plus on your receiver, and you're done.

I took your advise. All I really needed though was a pair of $4.00 couplers for my audio cables that were too short. I just joined two sets of audio and i was in business. Thanks man. A huge difference in picture quality from the standard and component cables.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
