Wii to HDMI Converter
Until now, Wii could not be connected to an HDTV via the HDMI port. Add HDMI to any Wii by plugging in this adapter. No extra setup is required. Enjoy the same games, but via HDMI.
How this works
The Wii 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.

I purchased this particular brand because of the reputation for low input lag. This seems to be the case and I am satisfied with the amount of lag introduced. I am extremely unsatisfied, however, with the moving diagonal lines that are persistently moving across the screen. They are especially prominent when there's lots of brightness on the screen (which is a lot on the Wii). I was told by Sewell that it probably wasn't a bad unit, but was a somewhat common problem when trying to output to 480p, though I'm getting the same lines when using 480i.
If you want something low lag and don't care too much about picture quality, this works. But if weird ghosting lines always moving across the screen will distract you, find another option. I've since moved back to component cords run through my Retrotink 2x Pro.
This adapter works perfectly! I can't speak to the competition as I skipped over the cheap stuff, but this adapter works beautifully. Output is clean without any issues. Shipping was also fast!
