I just got a Wii and connect the Wii device to my comcast box. I can't seem to figure out now how to get the Wii menu to show up on the TV. When I go thru the Input options, only Input 2 for the TV works and all the other inputs show as No Signall.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I have the same problem. I connected the Wii unit as directed in the Wii instructions directly to the input connections on the HDTV, but with the Wii unit on there was nothing on the TV. Would the Wii unit have to be connected through my DVD-VCR unit?

Thanks for the quick reply. I did manage to figure out what my problem was. I didn't click through all the options using the tv/vcr button on the remote. Works fine now. Thanks again for the help. Have a happy new year.

What did you do? What was the option. I am unable to get our Wii to work with any of the sets on Xfinity that do not have the more expensive box. Does anyone else have this problem or know how to solve it?

On my comcast controller number pad ( I have a HD TV) there is a TV/VCR button. Pushing the button switches to different modes. I found that the AV2 mode works for me. My daughter also has a Wii with a regular TV that uses AV3. You can try that to see if that works.

Hmm - none of my new controllers from Comcast have any such buttons (I recenlty "upgraded" to their all digital network.)
Has anyone successfully connected their Wii to an HDTV that uses the new controllers on the smaller box?

Sorry I couldn't be of help. If you are talking about the DTA units ( the small boxes) I have no idea how that would work. Are there any controls on the TV itself that you could plug the Wii unit into?

Yes, it is plugged into the composite inputs and the TV is set to receive signals from the composite inputs but no luck. Unfortunately I cannot get the Wii to work on any TV with the small box - only the larger one. In all cases the Wii was being set up to connect directly to the TV inputs.
Thanks for your efforts.
Does anyone else have this issue or know how to fix it?

Not a dumb question but I don't think we need to - we wanted to use it to stream a Netflix movie and they did away with the need for disk to do this a month or so ago. However, it might be worth a try to see if it somehow allows the TV to recognize it.

where the TV Experts might be able to assist you.

Where in the world are the famed instructions on how to get Xfinity set up on the Wll? I have done numerous Google search as well as looked high and low on this website, but I don't see a step-by-step instructions set to get Xfinity app on the Wii to watch it like Netflix.

I'm sorry, I have never heard of an Xfinity app for the Wii. Do yo mean simply connect it to your Internet connection? If so, do you have a wireless router? If you do, it's as simple as:
Under #7, provide your wireless password.
If that doesn't work, then check your router for MAC filtering. You also might need a firmware upgrade if this is an older router. It using a wireless-N router, make sure it is in mixed mode, not N-only (the Wii is wireless B or G, not N).
