I'm certain the cables are set up right. I have same problem with GameCube and PS2. Everything works fine with my old 27'' flatscreen tube TV. It's a Toshiba 32'' LCD HDTV.

Probably because you don't know what the difference between what a composite and component cable is.

It looks like I'll need a component to composite adaptor.

My suggestion instead would be to get a Wii Component Cable. You'll be able to use the Wii's 480p mode, and you won't have the color spill or crosstalk present when using the yellow composite connector. You can get them cheaply at most stores that carry video games, and many of them have connectors for PS3 and XBox too, if you have one.

Are you using component cables? If so then you messed up the placement.

From his post about needing a component to composite adapter (and when looking at the TV model he provided, which lacks RCA composite in), one can assume that he has at this point in time the standard yellow AV cable that came with the Wii and he is trying to plug it into one of his television's component inputs.

He just needs to get a Wii component cable is all.
