I've used a VDigi VGA cable for the Wii since I first got the console way back when. I've loved it ever since, because I really don't have the space for a big TV in my living situation, and I a spare monitor in my room for gaming consoles. Unfortunately, something wonky has started happening. If I try to turn the Wii on with the VDigi cable plugged in, the Wii will power on - and then immediately power off. Sometimes it will stay powered on for about thirty seconds before powering itself off.
Switching to component or composite cables works fine. The Wii stays powered and can play as expected, so I'm almost positive it's the VDigi cable that's borked.
The question is, though, if it's time to buy a new one or if I just mussed with the cable without knowing it. The difficulties started when I moved the console and transported it in a bag, so there's a possibility I accidentally flipped the dip switches on the cable. I have NO idea what the default settings should be, or even if inappropriate settings on the switches would cause the Wii to power down. I managed to find this text representation of the switches online, but I have no idea what it means, and my manual for the thing is a useless sheet of paper without information. Does anyone have any experience with this, or can offer any advice? I'm just hoping to be sure before I throw down the extra scratch to have one of these shipped again. Thanks!
