    ok, i did search, and haven't found quite what i'm looking for. I know you can somehow play songs on your wii, but i want to have songs playing while i'm playing the games. Is this possible? I don't have an SD card. Maybe i can put in a CD and upload the songs?

    thanks.

    The Wii storage space is pretty small (512mb) so I'd put the SD card in and just leave it there if that's all you're going to use it for...

    If you like listening to music while you Wii... why not get a radio or just wire a speaker from your PC into your living room/place you have your wii?

    Turn on your stereo, tune to your favorite radio station, and start playing the Wii. . .now you have music during games.

    also, without starting a new thread, i have some other questions.

    Is it possible to get aol instant messenger on Wii? I would think since you can get online, maybe its possible. Also, my remote is fine when i'm sitting down, but when i'm standing up, its not as accurate. The little hand is much lower than where i'm aiming.

    Don't think you can download and run apps on the Wii.

    As for pointer accuracy, where is your sensor bar? Have you tried above and below to see which one works better for you?

    i don't like you.

    as far as my sensor bar, its above my TV. i can't put it below. I'm playing on an old big screen. The screen sits on top of the speaker part, and theres no little edge to stick the bar on. If i put it below, it'd have to be on the ground, about two feet below the screen.

    oh also, is there a way i can minimize a screen or bring up a second one on the internet channel?

    4KB will get you about 38 seconds of MIDI music, as seen here: http://hungaria.org/hal/folklor/midi/folk/szatmar/verbunk.mid

    You're on crack if you think MP3s are that small ;)

    Edit:

    The sensor bar works above TV's as well, you just have to change the sensor bar position setting from "Below TV" to "Above TV".

    Anyways, my solution to music in every game was just to get one screen with a HDMI input and component input, have my computer hooked up to the HDMI (DVI to HDMI cable), and my computer's speakers right in front of the TV's speakers. Works pretty well, but I don't have a way to skip songs yet without switching between HDMI and YPbPr on my TV :|

    You can't do much with the Internet Channel yet, Nintendo only released a "trial" version, they're still working on all those good features you'd expect in a regular browser.

    I play with a dvd projector with 103" screen size - and I have my sensor bar on a little stool about 2.5 feet below the screen and I have no problems at all.

    Have you tried it?
