    How would you set up the wii?

    I have a tv in my room and is mounted the wall in the corner of my room.. How would i hook up the wii with the sensor bar? I have my gc hooked up and my gc is on the floor, and the wire reaches the tv but where would i put my sensor bar?? Any ideas?

    I rather have it hooked up in my room then downstairs where my sister has access to it ( she would brake it and if we get into a fight, she would) and i like it in my room incase i dont want to go downstairs... unless i take a piece of wood and drill it into the wall so its flat then put the wii and sensor bar at an angle so i dont have to play on my bed..... Or would this work: I hook up the wii and out the sensor on my monitor? I wonder what the range for the bar has to be because for golf you are lower ( hands wise).. AHHH, this is going to drive me nuts, have any advice?

    Yeah, the wiimote's range is 30ft (10 meters) from the sensor bar.

    As for where to put the sensor bar, you could just velcro it to the bottom or top of your TV, couldn't you? The sensor bar is about the length of two pencils placed end to end, so it's not like it's that big.

    the top of the tv is too high, maybe under it i have the sattellite box i can put it on that but i wonder if it would pick up the motion.. it might be too high.

    I believe the sensor bar is around 8", so it really wouldn't be hard to mount it using some of 3M's Command hooks or picture hanging strips. An even cheaper solution could be had from zip ties.


    Just keep in mind that the sensor bar's position does impact gameplay significantly, especially for games where 3D position is relative. So, you don't want to place it too high, too low, or off center from your display.

    In fact, using a tripod at about the height of your upper midsection placed a foot or so in front of your TV might be your best bet.
