Do you love gaming on your Nintendo Wii, but hate being limited to playing on a small television screen?

How to connect Wii to your projector with HDMI port?

Since the Wii console lacks an HDMI port, it cannot be connected directly to a projector using an HDMI cable. However, there are methods for doing so.

You will need:

  • RCA/AV to HDMI converter
  • HDMI cable
  • Wii video cables

First, connect one end of the HDMI cable to your projector and the other end to the RCA/AV to HDMI converter. The adapter has three ports where you will insert the video cable. One is white, one is yellow, and the others are red.

Make sure to plug the cables into each port correctly. The cable should go into the port that is the same color as the cable. Once everything is plugged in, turn on the projector to see if it works.

How do I connect an old Wii to a projector?

Even though the Wii doesn’t have an HDMI port, you should try to use a newer projector when playing Wii games. Older projectors don’t have the same connectors as the newer ones, so you’ll need to use adapters to connect them.

Most projectors from around the late 2000s and early 2010s have non-HDMI A/V connections. However, you can always get a converter or adapter to link up a Wii with a projector.

Plug the AV Multi Out plug of the Wii AV Cable into the AV Multi Out connector on the back of the console. Plug the colored connectors on the Wii AV Cable into input connectors on the TV that match their colors.
