Use a Component Cable

Perhaps, the traditional device to securely connect your TV and WII is through a component cable. Using single jacks might bring more wired connections, but remember that it also secures the connection.

If you look closely at your TV set, you will see many inputs. Some TV sets have five while some have more audio and video inputs. If your TV set comes with five inputs, it means there are three inputs for the video and two inputs for audio. Moreover, the wires of all inputs are properly marked and labeled so you can identify them easily through their colors and match them according to the slot.
