I think you can but it needs to be hacked. Why would you want to watch a dvd from a wii anyway? Composite cables blow!

I'm pretty sure you can use components for the Wii.

I would be careful if you choose to do the Homebrew has messed some peoples Wii up bad.

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

I read about the homebrew, but was leery to try it.

Now come on, how the hell would I use a "composite cable" as you call it??
lol

I have another DVD player, but I want a quick way for my son to watch DVD's and play Wii without carrying the dvd player in the other room.
