yes, excellent point! You can't have two things plugged into one. Two examples:

1. Having a single TV channel that accepts inputs of a red and white audio with either a yellow video OR an S-video. It can't accept both at the same time, so it gets confused. It will work with either the yellow OR the S-video in, but not both.

2. Having a universal game cord that has connections for more than one game system on it. For example, you get a universal cord that can have a Wii, a PS3, OR a xbox 360 connect to the TV. But again, it only works if just one system is plugged into it at a time--it's still multiple sources going into one TV channel.

The way to solve either of these is to redo the connections to the TV (get some component cables--the red,green,blue video ones, or some HDMI cables, etc.), OR get a selector box that would allow you to connect 2-4 (or more) devices into it, have one set of outs to the TV/sound system, then select on that box which one you'll be using and let the box do the rest.

Mine was black and white until I unplugged an "s" cable that is hooked up to my DVD/VCR player. NOw my WII plays really well...but not the DVR.

I think I will need to get special cables for DVR and DVD/VCR player to run in the leftover TV slots.

Okay, after reading this, I just have to ask...did you plug the red, white, yellow cord into the red, blue, green slots?

I just googled "wii in black and white on new tv" and got this:

ne
_black_white_no_colour


also, not sure if it's mentioned, but if you changed from a red,white,yellow cord to a red,blue,green,red, white...I think there's a setting on the Wii that needs to be changed, but not sure. (It's been a long while since I've had to look at those.)

you may need someone to help with the tv controls to set it up as well as the wii controls.

Check to see what input you have the tv set to. On mine, if it's set to componant instead of video my stuff is all in black and white. It took me a long time to figure this out with the new tv. Good luck, Pam
