    What Mode of Wireless?

    This may be just dumb, but I am looking into getting a Wii and wondering if it would work for me.

    My AV stuff is setup in an enclosed closet about 10' from where the TV hangs on the wall. I use a BT keyboard and an RF universal remote to control everything.

    Would the Wii controller work (BT?) without anything like a bar under the TV (not an option)?

    If not, are there any 3rd party controllers which would work without a line-of-sight, either through BT or RF?

    Thanks!

    well you need to have the wireless sensor bar which can sit on top of or under the tv, one comes with the wii but you can buy a nyko wireless sensor bar for about 20 dollars

    Thanks!

    I was afraid of this. Unfortunately, the bar will not look great in my setting:-(

    So, nobody makes actual controllers which are BT or RF and can just communicate either directly with the Wii, or through a dongle?

    If not, someone really should...:-)

    That's what I thought..., but then why the need for the bar?

    Could the controller connect directly to the Wii without a line of sight, and if so, at what distance?

    i think the movements are what you need the sensor bar for because it picks up the movement and the buttons work through bluetooth

    O.K, I see....

    I thought that with Nintendo's investment in Gyration, it worked kind of like the old Gyration remote/mouse combo I had, which had motion sensing and RF.

    Bummer:-(

    why not just buy the wireless sensor bar and tape it to the top of your tv?

    haha it doesn't hurt the looks of your tv if your tv is black, actually it kinda blends in and looks good but if your tv is white or another color then i don't know what to tell you
