What is the best way to connect a Wii to the Pioneer VSX-90

I am trying to connect a Wii to a Pioneer VSX-90 using the component video and analog audio combination cable that comes with the Wii. I can get video but I can't find a configuration that allows me access to an analog audio output, so I am not getting any audio.

Figured it out

In reply to: which wii?

It is the original Wii, not the WiiU. I figured it out. I used the component jacks reserve for SAT/CABLE which also have a dedicated set of analog audio jacks. I don't need them for my cable box since it uses HDMI. I mistakenly thought that I had to have an assignable audio port, but as long as the device uses the SAT/CABLE labeled component video and the dedicated audio ports for that, it will work.

Thanks for responding.
