    Well the idea is for them to include this setting in a future firmware update
    Just make a little shelf right under the projector screen

    I wish there was some kind of adjustment so that you can adjust it to be more accurate depending on your TV size and stuff. Its not that big of a deal though.

    I don't have a big deal with it it, but I have to angle my sensor bar to pick up the movements correctly.

    Just tape the sensor bar on the bottom of the projector screen.

    Projection screen is far away from where I'm playing (8m) and i projector on a wall. I need to place it somewhere in the middle but at a height lower than directly below the screen

    I play it on a projector last night with an 80" image. I put the wireless sensor bar a few feet in front of the screen. When I set up my home theater in the basement, I'll drop down 2 groups of IR LED from the ceiling.
    If you are making your own sensor bar, you can put more IR LEDs on each side and put the two groups farther apart on top (or bottom) of your projector screen to provide sufficient signal to be detected at a distance.

    I know what you're talking about iceblade. I too use a PJ setup at home using an InFocus 4805 projecting onto a custom made 90" diagnonal black out cloth screen. Depending on the height of the screen, you can somewhat improve the situation by telling the wii the bar is in the opposite spot. If the bottom of the screen is above eye level and you can get the sensor bar on the bottom of the screen at that level, then tell the Wii the sensor bar is on top of the TV. It takes some getting used to initially but it feels find after awhile.

    I guess I'm used to it now but I have my sensor bar below the TV. My screen hangs on our entertainment center and the sensor bar is still visible below the screen, I can use the same settings for the TV as I can for the large screen. I haven't had any problems with this setup myself. Do you have pics of your setup?

    If you are using a projector far away then you will have to have some sort of stand placing it between the screen and you.

    There is no getting around that. I fail to see how "adjusting the distance" in your situation would even be possible.

    I would post photos but I don't think it would help. I'm now actually thinking of constructing two IR sources that would be set much further apart than the original sensor bar and placed on a table in front of my projection screen. Do you think this will improve the triangulation? However there really should be a sensor bar offset custom setting in the wii settings.

    The problem is that the height of this stand isn't adjustable and is 20cm below the lowest part of the screen. That's why I'm talking about a sensor bar offset compensation setting

    It's infrared, you can't just adjust triangulation. If it is sitting significantly lower than where you are holding the wiimote, there is nothing you can do about it. Unless you tilt the sensor bar and aim down with the wiimote for everything you do.
