My old Wii, like many others, has been languishing in the loft for a couple of years. I decided to dig it out and see whether any of the more recent releases had improved.
BUT before I could get it fired up and playing, I encountered a problem: my new space-age TV doesn't talk to old outmoded electrical equipment; it has a scart lead. Two, actually. It has HDMI. It has a nice socket through which it can communicte to intelligent, modern devices via the internet. It even has a USB socket. But it doen't have composite RCA-style ports, which are what my Wii has at the end of it's A/V out leads.
The only solution seemed to be to buy one of Nintendo's expensive propreitory scart leads, which I hate doing; proprietory cables and sockets should be illegal in my book!!! Luckily for me, this little bit of plastic popped up on Amazon just at the right time. It does everything I wanted, and I now have Wii on my TV.
My one has an 'in/out' switch on it, which should be set to 'in'.
And no, the games haven't got better!
