    What recommendations are there for 3rd party sensor bars? I'd prefer one that plugs into a wall but am not object to a battery powered model. Price is the largest factor.

    I don't care for the string-like power cord that connects the sensor bar to the system. I'm afraid I'll accidentally rip the thing or something moving my TV one day.

    Get a wireless one, Nyko's fine.

    Two candles will work as well..

    What happened to the supplied one?

    My supplied one is fine. I'm just afraid I might accidentally rip the cord on it out of carelessness if I ever move the TV or something.

    dont ask me

    All i know is that we both have a Wii and the only difference between mine and his is he has a wireless sensor bar and I don't and his is very delayed. Is there something I'm missing?

    I don't know where the lag would be, as an IR LED is universal, as is light...

    hmmmm well I guess I'm completely wrong. What else could be causing it to lag?

    Lol, I dunno actually.

    What I meant by it is that IR light from a wireless one is exactly the same as a wired one....

    Whoever had a friend with a wireless one, switch back and forth and see if it does anything.

    If the IR lights in the sensor bar are blinking on and off, even in a rapid manner, it could affect the remote's spatial sensing.
