    I think it really depends on where you have your TV... if your TV is at eye level when you're standing then I'd say under the TV... if it's below eye level then above the TV.

    You can place the sensor bar either above the screen or below the screen. There's an option in the Wii configuration where you can tell it where the sensor bar is.

    When you set up the Wii and connect everything, it asks you if you've placed the Sensor Bar on top of the TV, or below the TV

    i think he's asking which is the best, but i guess you'd be able to test it yourself when you got a wii.

    Hey guys i'm from Belgium and in about a month i will be getting a Nintendo Wii. I currently cannot afford it right just yet because i still don't have enough money. On the flipside, I do have a question/concern... With the sensor bar, where would it be best to position it? I have a plasma flat screen that is approximately 106CM wide (42 inches). Would it be best to put it on top or bottom? What is your opinion?

    hope that helps for anyone reading

    btw: it depends on how high your plasma is sitting

    I used some double sided tape to secure the sensor bar to the TV.

    DO NOT put your sensor bar more than an inch away from the TV... you'll get horrible results.

    Yes, it comes with some sticky tape at the bottom of the sensor bar. I didn't use the provided tape because I had some other tape on hand and also I was planing on getting a new TV soon.

    You want to put the bar as close to the actual screen as possible so this really depends on your setup. My TV (42" plasma) has a rather thin bezel but sits on a stand so i can get it closest to the screen by putting it on top. I can't imagine many situations where putting it under the TV would get it closer but I'm sure there are some...
