Nintendo has nothing to do with your problem, because you're using a monitor not a TV. The Wii U is designed for TV's...

If you're going to complain about people suggesting that you buy new hardware, USE COMPONENT CABLES. They still support 1080p and they have analog out which you don't seem to be having problems with.

The Wii U is not a PS3. It cannot output video from HDMI and audio from the proprietary component cables simultaneously. Pick one or the other. Maybe they'll update it in the future, but stop complaining when people are trying to help you. This thread is full of useful suggestions; take it or leave it.

Their argument is that Dolby codecs should still be supported. The only way to get surround sound out of the Wii U is HDMI, because it doesn't support anything but the sound itself.
Dolby is mainly a brand people look for to ensure compatibility, and nothing more.
It for the best to abandon the Dolby codec for more reasons than one.
Dolby is a compressed file format, and the charge boils down to charging for the sound itself. It basically means that your devices are free from an obsolete format. Whether your devices support that or not is past.
Component cables won't even support any form of TRUE surround sound. It's apparent that HDMI is the only cable that can carry the uncompressed data without sending it pieces and putting it back together on the sound source.
It's like buying a car, and being disgruntled that a new one comes out next year.

EDIT: BTW, this thread is old, and the OP was complaining about a monitor, and not being able to fix his problem without buying other things, or buying better equipment to begin with.

Oh whoops, now I feel stupid
I probably should have looked at the dates and more of the other posts before I posted!
