    I have a 6-yr-old Sony XGA projector that rarely used at home. After trying Wii at my friend's place on a TV, I am convinced that projector is the way to go for Wii since you need a lot of room for movement. I got my Wii set up the first time yesterday. At first, I used the standard sensor bar to see whether it works good enough before I opened the Nyko wireless one. I had problem in positioning the wired sensor bar and a sensitivity issue. After an hour, I switched to the wireless one. I observed big improvement in sensitivity and the stability of the pointer. We had a lot of fun playing tennis and bowling in our family room yesterday with a ~60" projection and standing ~10ft away. My hands are all tired right now.
    I don't see any problem with the wireless sensor bar. If you are using a projector or large screen projection TV, the wireless sensor bar is highly recommended. I paid $18.09 for it including tax.

    I agree but this doesn't work for some of us that have a projector which generally means that the receiver is located away from the screen where the sensor bar must be placed.

    If I used the standard sensor bar, I'd have a long cable running across my media room.

    I have to say running Wii on component video on a 110" screen is not too bad. Definitely lower quality than HD but pretty decent.

    I just figured out the wireless sensor is just 2 infrared lights (some yellow light works too) around 10in apart. One can easily make one but $20 is not too much more than the parts and effort for the job either. It would be a nice DIY project though.

    Well yeah, it dosen't work NOW, it was taken down some time ago, but I myself did see the site, I don't know if the site was fake or not, but I don't care because I wasn't planning of buying one there anyway (I wanted to build one, I think my thread is still up, click the link in my sig), I am still trying to build the one mentioned above, but I got the Nyko one for free from a place I can not say, the Nyko one is compatible with the stand that comes with the wired sensor bar, it's a little bigger than the stock wired one, but it works pretty well, but then of course, as mentioned before it does take batteries, so pick up some rechargables your next time out if you plan to get one, but compaired to the wired one, I love the wireless one, no wire for the cats to chew and not having to worry where to place the wire
