Introduction: Palmer: How to Connect Your Nintendo Wii to Your Tv

In this instructable I will show you how to connect a wii to a tv.
Needed materials
-power cable
-HD/SD cable
-Sensor bar

Step 1: Step 1: Locate Console and Cables

 Find your nintendo wii, power cable, HD/SD cable, and sensor bar.

-The power cable is the cord that  looks like a gray brick with an attachment for power on one end and a connection to the wii on the other.

-The audio video cable varies depending if you use a HD or SD cable. Both cables have a color code. The SD cable has the red, white, and yellow connections. But, the HD cable has one more set of connections. They are colored red, green, and blue.

-The sensor bar is the long, thin, and rectangular item.

Step 2: Step 2: Locate Ports on Console

Each cable has its own port. These ports are located on the back of the wii.

Step 3: Step 3: Plug the HD/SD, Sensor Bar, and Power Cable Into Console

The cables don't really have any specific order in which they are plugged in.

Step 4: Step 4: Plug the HD/SD Cable Into Tv

The connections on the end of the HD and or SD cable go into the red, white, yellow, green, and blue holes. They are located on the back of the tv.

Step 5: Step 5: Put the Sensor Bar Above or Below the Tv and Plug Power Cable Into the Wii and a Outlet

Putting the sensor bar above or below the tv doesn't matter. This is your preference to where you want to point the wiimote.

Step 6: Step 6: Push Power Button.

If  properly connected and the correct tv input is selected, once powered on the wii should bring you to the wii menu.

YOU WON!!!!!!! :O

    It would be nice if it would have more information/steps, like the security stuff with the wiimote and how you use the wiimote and such.

    why did you make this?
    i'd like to think the majority of people who come on the Wii section of instructables arent 5 year old orphans without parents who can't set up a wii

    Apparently you did not read the "be nice" comment policy. I read nothing positive or constructive in your comment. How many instructables have you posted?

    All of the Senior High Instructables were created by students as exercises in technical writing and engineering practice. While some may not be high tech they all are someone's hard work and should be treated respectfully.

    Thanks for apologizing.
