Topic: 5 plug vs 3 plug connection

Posts 1 to 3 of 3


I have the old school Wii and it has the 5 plug output. My new smart TV does not have enough inputs, so I looked at the HDMI converters, same problem, they are setup for 3 inputs.

What are my options for connecting to my new TV?



Not many. Either get the Wii HDMI modeled or use a Wii U to play Wii games.

@RevSpongeBobSP I think I understand what you're saying. The five-plug connection would be component, and the three-plug composite. But I think you should take another look at HDMI converters again. I've found two so far that have the Wii's single multi-out connector on one end, and HDMI on another. One I've seen is branded as a Portholic Wii to HDMI converter, and there's another by Hyperkin which is a more known brand of retro-gaming products. I bet there are lots more as well. I can't vouch for how well these work or anything like that.
