I don't think anything's wrong with my Wii, but I'm just trying to understand something. I have the black version, not Wii U. Got it in 2011. The bowling game for example that came with it. I can be literally 30 feet away from the sensor bar and bowl just fine. I can be the same distance playing Super Mario, which does not use the sensor bar I'm assuming since it's not based on motion, and everything works just fine. So why when I am 15 feet away sitting on the couch can I not do the initial pointing to start the game??? Like when we play Super Mario, I have to get off the couch to get closer so that I can point the arrow to launch Super Mario, then select Start. It's not a height issue, it's not that anything is blocking the sensor bar, I've even tried a brand new sensor bar to make sure nothing is wrong. It's like that initial pointing has different sensory settings or something. It's baffling my mind since I can bowl from 30-40 ft away! What's the deal here?
