    No pics.. just picture a small plastic box with a switch on the outside.. 2 wires coming out of it. And that connected to the end of the sensor.

    Pretty simple.. and was fun to make.. I like to solder.. lol

    He's not even asking a question so why does he have to read a shitty thread first full of speculation when you can memorize the schematic in about 10 seconds. Did you even read his post?

    Yes, he/you was/were asking a question.. why the resistors.. and that at 9v the lights would be dimmer. When I'm getting 20+ feet on the mod, I doubt it's dimmer.

    The thread had experience from many different guys, all experiencing different voltages.. some 12, some 7.2 Then they tried standard wall plugs of different voltages. Anything over 9 heated up the bar and in one case burnt out the LEDs.

    I guess you lost me asking if I read your post.. unless you're referring to another one.

    I was in best buy the other day and they had the Nyco wireless sensor bar for 19.99. Just a thought for all of those thinking of spending the time, effort and money on the DIY project. Of course I understand the sense of accomplishment and sheer fun of making it yourself.

    Congrats on the new wii and the homemade sensor bar!

    Ok...

    Here is where it's mounted, on the center channel:


    Here is a pick of the box with the switch and battery and resistor inside:


    And here is a pic of my about 20 feet from the screen where it still works past (it's going up stairs):


    I'm not going to open the box, though. That's top secret.

    Ya, it works great for us! Only 92", but back when I did it, that was big. Not sure I'd want much bigger.

    The cool thing is now, I play wii boxing after my weights for cardio. WAY more fun that jogging a couple miles.. lol! Then I bowl a few games for a cool down.. lol
