Im new to this forum so hello everybody, looking forward to joining the community n all that.
sorry to be a pain and post yet another projector post.
I have recently purchased a wii and have to say i am mighty impressed with this little beauty.
I have it hooked up to a 26" tv at the moment and not my projector as i cant use it until next week.
My understanding of the sensor bar is that their are two infra red emmiters on it seperated by about 12cm. These two emmiters are used with the remote to triangulate its position. This is the thing though, Has anybody experienced this. Due to the relatively small spacing between the two emmiters on the sensor bar, the further away from it you get, the smaller hence innacurate the angles become that the wii is calculating. I have found that the wiimote starts losing it at about 2.5 - 3m away from the sensor bar, as the angles used to triangulate the signal starts to get just too small.
here is my question
everybody on the internet who owns projectors myself included, has been worried about the length of the cord in placing the sensor bar at the from of the room possibly a good 5m away from the console, but has anybody successfully lengthened the cord (there are many methods circling around at the moment) and managed to sit 5 meters away from the screen and still et an accurate position on the screen??
Also has anybody experimented just placing the sensor bar closer to you and seeing what happens??
i think this is an issue which has been overlooked and would appreciate any insight fellow wii'rs can offer!
