    And I have some questions. I put my sensor bar abpve my tv and it is sitting on a cable box. Does that intefere with the motion sensitive of the Wii? And how do I download the updates and stuff?

    Congrats.

    I'm not enitrely sure about the cable box question... Though I'm almost sure that it won't affect it.

    And to get updates, you need to confirm your internet connection, and I believe it will automatically update.


    I have no Wii (-sniggersnort-), though, so don't take my word to the bone. But I'm almost sure that's the way to do it.

    No, Wii sports is mad fun though. I'll make a thread later about my story today, it was pretty fun. Anyways, here is my wii number:

    3964 8307 8964 3931

    Btw, how do I send messages to myself? Like through an email thingy.

    I believe it's w(your wii's number)@wii.com like for you it'd be w3964830789643931@wii.com

    Haven't done it myself but that's what it seems to be.

    Hey, congrats on getting one. Yeah, the light doesn't stay on when you turn on the console, only when you get a new message.

    It won't mess up anything as long as the cable box is at the edge of the front of the TV and the sensor bar is at the edge of the cable box. Also, make sure to go into the Wii Settings and set the sensor bar setting to "Above TV."
    To download the updates, you'll need to get Wii online. If you have a wireless router and internet access, then go to my guide:

    Official Wii Wireless Internet Connection Guide

    If you don't have a wireless router, you'll need to buy a USB-ethernet LAN adapter, which has a USB part that you plug into the Wii and the other end is an ethernet port, which you will then plug a ethernet cord into, the other end going into the router.

    Once online, go to the guide I linked to above to see where to go to update. You should get 2-3 updates which take a bit of time.

    Hope that helped.:D

    If you disable WiiConnect24, you should be ok I think.
