No Wii video

I know the Wii is an antique, but I'm hoping somebody can help me figure out what's wrong. I have it hooked to our new Sony STR-DH550 receiver via the standard Wii RCA connection. When we set the receiver to the appropriate input channel we only get audio from the Wii. The receiver is hooked to the TV via the HDMI output and has no problem sending video from the Blu-ray or cable box to the TV. So I don't understand why the Wii video doesn't make the trip. We could hook the Wii straight to the TV like we did before getting the new receiver. But we'd like to keep the audio going through the surround system.

Could it be because the receiver can't translate the RCA input to HDMI output? I know we can get an HDMI converter for the Wii. So maybe that's the only solution.

Re: No Wii video

your assessment is correct regarding the RCA to HDMI

Perfect day for lazing about.

It helped tremendously. Now I just have to figure out what the difference is between all the Wii converters and where I can get one locally.
