How to Connect Your Wii to Your Television

Finish the Set Up and Play Games
Turn on your TV. Set your TV input for the input channel your Wii is plugged into. This can usually be done through a button on your television remote generally called “tv/video” or “input select.”

Read any onscreen text. This will be either a warning, in which case you can press the A button, or a request for information, such as whether the sensor is above or below your TV and what the date is. Point the remote straight at the screen. You will see a cursor similar to the mouse cursor on a computer. The “A” button does the equivalent of a mouse click.

Once you have answered all the questions you are ready to play games. Push a game disc into the disc slot; the illustrated side of the CD should face away from the power button.

The main Wii screen shows a bunch of TV screen-shaped boxes, and clicking on the top left one will take you to the game screen. Click the START button and begin playing.

Have fun!
