    About 3 to 4 feet away. But like I said I've played around with positioning, doesn't seem to help.

    That should be far enough. Make sure the sensor bar is at the edge also if youve got a 2nd remote maybe try that because it could be a faulty remote

    Don't mean to interrupt, but when I look at my sensor bar with my cell phone there are 5 lights on each side instead of 4 lights..

    are there different models of the sensor bar or is my cell display lying to me?
    History in the making..

    I noticed he said 4 but i desided not to say anything. There are actually 5 IR leds on each side. So theres nothing wrong with your sensor bar

    Yeah, I was gonna say something about that too, there are 5 led lights that are lit on each side, total of 10 led lights. Although only two are actually necessary for the Wii to work, one on each side. All 5 are lit on each side. Tried my second Wii remote (scored it at Best Buy), no luck, same problem. It's looking more and more like a faulty Wii console.



    EDIT: By the way, thanks so much for trying to help me everyone. It's great to see the Wiichat community is this good about trying to help out it's members.

    Similar issue with my console. I think it may just be an inherent flaw that you just have to live with but if you find out any more about it, be sure to post it here 'cause I'll be interested.

    After all the trouble these guys have gone through to help me, I'm sure it's not an inherent flaw that you just have to live with. Well, one way or the other, I'll get it fixed. If I have to send it to Nintendo, then that's what I have to do. At least they send you another console first, then you send them the broken console. Rather than being like MS and making you wait a week to two weeks, if not longer, to get a working console.

    is your sensor bar flipped upside-down? (if you didn't use the provided double stick tape, then it's a possibility)

    I thought about that too. I've tried flipping it over, didn't make a bit of difference. Which make sense seeing as it's just a set of LEDs so it shouldn't matter if it's upside down or not, as long as the lights are lit. Thanks though.



    And it gets even stranger. I hooked my wii up to my other TV on a table instead of in my entertainment center, and poof like magic it works fine. Only problem is, I'd much much rather use my better TV. This TV doesn't even have component hookups, only composite. I'll play like this if I have to, but I'm totally baffled as to why it works when hooked up to one TV but it doesn't when hooked up to the other. Maybe the Wii-Mote just doesn't like the TV being in the entertainment center?
