I am having problems getting a second remote to work with my wii. I have to synch the 2nd remote everytime I start the console.
Here is what happens...start the console, hit A on remote #1 at the health and safety screen, hitting A on remote #2 causes remote #1 to lose synch...now both remotes are dead.
The only workaround I have found is to resynch the #2 remote with either the red buttons or by resynching both remotes using the controller settings on the wii menu. Also sometimes after I do this and hit "Start" on the disc menu screen to start a game, both controllers will lose their synch.
By the way, as long as I only use one controller and play solo, the wii works like a champ (as long as no one touches the 2nd controller). It's the 2nd controller that causes the wii to lose its' mind. I have also tried swapping controller #1 with controller #2 in the above sequence to no avail.
I have contacted Ninendo and have made arrangements to return the wii, remotes and sensor bar for repair but I was hoping that someone had a solution to this so I don't have to be without my wii for a few weeks.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
