Hitachi HXT12U 42 In Full HD1080p FVHD LED TV + Smart Apps. 4.4 5 382 395
great for the price Bought this tv in the sale as my original tv was irreparable, sound is good as is the picture, my main issue is connecting to the internet or streaming film/pictures through the WiFi dongle(sold Separately) it often disconnects and on times the tv is not findable when searching for it through your phone/tablet. The hdmi and other outlets to rear of tv are quite snug against my wall when connected didn't have this with my last tv(Bush) as the connectors were deeper into the casing. 21 September 2014
Loving it! Very impressed with this. Extremely easy set-up of the FreeviewHD and the Wi-fi! Sound quality is great, picture is excellent and it looks lovely even switched off. Already told lots of my friends and family about it. 16 September 2014
Television I was very happy with this t.v and the excellent help from the lovely young lady , only gripe is that the next week the price reduced by £30 ! 09 September 2014

Answer: 
There is a short adapter cable supplied with the TV. It has a yellow jack plug at one end, and yellow / red / white inline sockets at the other. This then plugs into the AV connector at the side of the TV. (I think it's composite video, not component video - red and white are audio.) This works for me.

Alternatively, Wii comes with an adapter that plugs into scart socket and allows the three connectors to plug into that. I haven't tried that approach myself.

Answer: 
Hi,

The Hitachi HXT12U 42 In Full HD 1080p FVHD LED TV + Smart Apps does not have a component input, you would have to use an adaptor and connect the Wii to the TV via SCART.
