I have the cable box hooked up and running and the sound (5.1) is working when I play DVDs and cable. I can play the Wii but the sound is only going through the TV and I want it to play through the home theatre. I’ve tried a few different way of connecting it but haven’t found the one way it will work yet. I’ve looked at the owners manuals but they aren’t clear on what to do when have more then two items to contend with. I also checked out Nintendo’s site and all it said was to hook the Wii output cable into the input of the cable box, which I did but it didn’t work. Any ideas?
