Connecting Wii to a TV with only coaxial using a U-Verse VIP1200 box
I have a very old TV. It has ONLY ONE coax connection. There are no A/V I/Os on the back. It has a VIP1200 U-Verse box connected to it. For clarification, the MAIN U-Verse Modem/Router is in another room and is the brain of our U-Verse network connecting our main television and 2 computers.
I reviewed this issue in another post, with subsequent solution, and found I needed to purchase something called a composite modulator, which I did. I went to Best Buy they gave me what I needed (I thought), a Terk Mini-Modulator. I came home and connected EXACTLY as directed in a previous post. (At least I thoughtI did). On a scale of 1-10, I'm probably a 6 or 7 with written directions !!!
Anyway, after reviewing the directions for connecting this composite modulator (about 10 times), I DO have Wii on channel 3. However, supposedly if you power down the Wii you should see some signs of U-Verse. Unfortunately, I only have gray fuzz now after powering down the Wii console. It's as if something is not connected correctly, but I did it exactly as the directions indicated. It says if you power-down the Wii, you should see the U-Verse screen as a minimum. Like I said: Only gray fuzz.
With this particular hardware configuration, is it either U-Verse or Wii???? Any suggestions?
