    I think Wii only uses AV (red/white/yellow) cables on up. Time to retire that old workhorse, my friend.

    There is a RF adapter, all major chains carry it. just tell the electronics salesperson your situation, they will hook you up. It's the same as not having the correct hookups for a dvd player to an old TV. They'll know what you need.

    You do need a new TV, you know that right?

    You could run the A/V cables through a VCR. Most of them can convert A/V into RF. This is the method I used with my RF-only TV. The problem is, I don't know if anyone sells VCRs anymore.

    I have a Pelican System Selector that has 5 systems using A/V cables all going into an old RF only TV. Maybe that's more system slots than you need, but the thing was $20 and does what you need. Mine was from Best Buy but you can probably find them anywhere.

    yeah just go to radioshack and look for an rf modulator. itll run you bout $10-20 but its kinda worth it. my tv was a display model for colortyme, they wernt even supposed to make tvs but they made mine, and I have a modulator and a splitter box with 9 systems hooked up.
