    I just moved in to my dorm room, and it's a single, meaning it is extremely small. The way I have my TV/Wii set up, The tv is about 4 feet aobe the ground, sensor bar below it, and then I have a very low to the ground futon about 3 feet from that. Using the wii, I can see the TV from the futon, but the angle is so extreme to the sensor bar, that I'm having a heck of a time getting it to work. I have played with the settings forever, and I'm getting really frustrated. Can the sensor bar work at really close distances? What settings should I adjust to make this work? I'm going crazy without my Wii!!!!!! HELP!

    I've tried that. I think the angle is too small, (from the top of the tv to sitting on the futon in front of it).

    1. If that's a bunk on top play it from up there,
    2. Put the tv where that microwave looking thing is and turn it to face the futon, then sit facing it,

    Hope this helps =]

    Try purposfully mismatching the sensor bar settings. With the bar below the TV, change the Wii setting and tell it that it's on top. Then see how that feels. If that's no good, try it the other way around (sensor bar on top, setting set to bottom).

    Looks to me like you're too close to the TV, I have the same problem when I sit that close, or at an angle. Can you rearrange the furniture to give yourself about 6 feet of distance from the tv?

    Maybe try some locations for the tv and maybe 're-sort' the room untill you find a position which you find comfortable and which works.
