The Nintendo Wii games console supports two types of output when hooking up to a flat screen Toshiba TV. Almost all Toshiba TVs will support composite or AV input. The Wii comes with a grey AV Cable with three connectors -- coloured yellow, white and red -- for standard definition video and audio output. For better picture and sound quality from the Wii, you can use component input, available on Toshiba HD TVs. The Wii Component Cable, sold separately, has three plugs for video and two for audio.
