    Hey everyone! My first post here, great forum!

    I've got a quick question relating to the sensor bar for the Wii. Is it easily removable and replaceable on different TV's? I plan on utilizing the WiFi connecion to move around my house when needed, i.e. My room, office downstairs, and Living Room (biggest TV in house). So would it be fit for this situation?

    im assuming it is connected to the wii through one simple cable, and will work on any tv. I have a small portable in my room, and am also hoping that it will work on this and the one in the living room.

    presumably, any changes about the tv in use either wont affect it or will be easily noted on wii's menu.

    Im sure nintendo will make it as easy as possible, as always...

    I wouldnt worry about it...

    Hmm, I hope it works out in our favor, as I'm sure it will. I can't see Nintendo doing something that would screw over a lot of customers, becuase I'm sure a lot of people are planning on moving/taking your Wii places.

    it plugs into your console like a controller and just sits on top (or bottom) of your TV so it can be moved pretty easy

    But won't i get the TV sticky if an adhesive is used?
    and what if the Bar isn't long enough for someone's TV, or too long?
    How much will It cost?
    I really think Nintendo needs to tell more.

    maybe the bigger your TV they just crop the game so its fits and if its to small they again crop it. But then it would make it blurry or squishy. ohhhhh well time can only tell.

    you will be able to calibrate your controller... thats been said somewhere before.. .this will include the ability to set up your motion and what/where the sensor picks it up... so if you have a big TV the little sensor will probably work just as well as a little one... once you have calibrated it correctly...
    (unless your TV is 6ft wide... at which point you should cut it in half and give part of it to me...)

    when you say sensor bar is seems like your talking about the Wii sensor bar, how far away you can connect depends on your wireless range, not the wii. and yah from what ive seen it only has 2 plugs, havent seen the sensor bar plug though o.0

    Ok... as far as I know the sensor bar only needs to be one size. And, as shown in not so recent pictures, it is slightly longer than an average pen. I do believe I also read somewhere that there will be and adhesive backing. When you start the wii for the first time it will probably just ask you to move the pointer to the far left of the screen, the far right, top, bottom. Then its calibrated! Then later, via a menu, you can redo it if you change tv sizes.

    I have no doubt that you will be able to calibrate the motion sensing to your tv. And I hope to god that my having no doubt is true. I have a 100 in. projection screen tv (yes, 100 in! but doesnt have the best quality) and that will no doubt be different than a small portable tv. I'm sure nintendo would have thought about calibration of some sort. That would have been one of the most obvious things when creating a motion sensor for all sizes of tvs.

    The motion sensor won't be calibrated to the TV, the IR pointer would be, the motion sensing change would be for big or small movements, the IR most likely will be calibrated through the Wii's internal OS like a light gun. Nintendo has also stated that this will work with small TV all the way up to projection TV's, that is one of the advantages of the sensor bar over the traditional light gun, light guns would send a signal vertically and horizontally the mark each point when it hit the gun and get coordinates, making a flash on-screen, now there are IR sensors on the bar and the Wii senses the controllers position by the relativity to the bar which should mean it could be used for a movie theater screen in theory.

    Just remember: even if it does come with some kind of adhesive (which I'm sure it will) you can always replace it with Velcro.
