Connect Wii to TV

Kids getting a Wii for Christmas, not the U just the standard version as they are still young.

How best do i connect to my TV, I know it comes with phono leads but have seen some devices to connect via HDMI, is this worth while or desirable?

Alternatively I have a Bluray surround sound system also attached, is it possible or better to connect the Wii via this system?

The Wii does not have HD graphics and only two-channel sound so you won't see any benefit by doing any of the above. Just connect it using the supplied phono plugs (composite video, sound L/R)

You can get a component cable for the Wii that improves things a little but it's no great leap.

It's well worth getting that. Sharpens the poor graphics up a bit.

Official ones were hard to get or expensive when I was looking and that was a while ago.
