Wii to HDMI Converter
Convert the standard Wii output into an HDMI 1.3 compatible format for audio and video to be carried over one cable.
How this works
The Wii to HDMI adapter plugs directly into your Wii's cable port (the same port you use to connect the Wii video cable that is included with the Wii). After you have plugged it into this port, you will have an available HDMI port.
This adapter creates a super-accurate, rich and vibrant 480p reproduction of your Wii's video signal. For the best performance, make sure your Wii's video output setting is switched to 480p (also called "Enhanced Definition" in your Wii Resolution settings). This will double the average refresh rate of your pixels and deepen the colors.
The Wii to HDMI adapter includes an audio break-out port that allows you to send stereo audio to another audio device of your choice (like an audio receiver). The port is in the form of 3.5mm stereo port.
Handles Both Audio and Video through HDMI Too
Since HDMI is an audio/video signal, this device rises to the task and handles both through the HDMI port. This conveniently allows you to run a single cable to your TV unless you wish to break the audio out separately using the adapter's break-out 3.5mm port.

when compared to similar converters like the popular portholic, this one does result in a noticeable upgrade in clarity in my use. unfortunately i had to return the sewell one due to the intermittent jailbar lines that coat the screen like some users have mentioned. i only use premium connections with all my electronics so i don't know the root of the problem. my portholic one did not have this issue.
when contacted about the it, the sewell rep was understanding and offered an exchange or return
The device works as it should and has low input lag as described, but just like some other reviews I’ve read I’ve also been noticing faint diagonal lines that move across the screen. It’s definitely more pronounced when in 480p mode, than 480i. I had another cheaper brand before this one and a similar thing happened. Guess these things just have poor shielding inside to block interference. Reached out to Sewell, but apparently my warranty ran out on the device so I just have to live with it. Otherwise the device works fine and functions well, other than the slightly jarring wave of faint lines that move across screen. So I’d say it’s a fairly good device, but not great, considering the higher price over the other brands. Basically paying the premium for the low input lag since the other brand I had had a similar issue with the lines.
We're sorry that device caused you problems and hope we can do business in the future!
