If so, how do you do this?
What are the connections for audio and video that are visible for?
DO NOT PUT YOUR WII IN THE COMPARTMENT BELOW THE TV! we made this mistake in our 378 and almost fried it due to the extreme heat in that cubby above the fireplace. I do not put ANY electronics above that fireplace as discussed in other threads on the 378.
The video plate mounted into the top of the cabinet behind the TV on ours does not connect to anything, I suspect it should have connected to the aux inputs on the back of the TV so that you could put something in the cubby and hook it up easier.
We now put our Wii in the overhead compartment where the DVD player is and plug it into the AUX input on the back of the switch box. You then switch the box to the AUX input to see it on the TV.
In addition we bought a separate power cord, TV cord and a wireless infrared bar at Walmart that just stay in the motorhome so that all we have to do is grab the Wii box and put it in the rig. The wireless infrared bar is a must in the RV so that you don't have wire running to the unit in that overhead compartment...
Had fun playing Mario Kart with our friends on our last trip out when it was blowing snow sideways outside....
