    I've been thinking about gettin one of these, because the freakishly long sensor bar cord is pissing me off. I if you have it what do u reccomend about it?

    Yes, you can cut the cord and use a 9V battery to make the original sensor bar wireless. However, you can also make one easily using 2 little light bulbs or flash light. Just use your WiiMote in calibration mode to identify compatible light source. Then two of them in a 10-12" distance. It is funny that the sensor bar is actually not a sensor, while the wiimote is. FYI. the backlight of a LCD display is sufficient. I do have a wireless sensor bar just for the convenience of setting it up with a portable projector.

    I've tested a couple tv remotes and it works fine. If the tv remotes aren't sucking up any battery life, then why does the sensor bar need batteries?

    The sensor bar is always on, whereas the TV remotes kinda "sleep" until you press a button

    I understand that. I replaced the sensor bar with two remotes and the Wii remote worked fine. Thats why I don't see why the sensor bar needs batteries. You know?

    um the sensor bar needs batteries for power.......

    anyways i dont care about that little bity cable, plus i have a billion other cables for the TV, Satelite, computer, surround sound and dozens of consoles, so that little baby cable is nothin.

    But the tv remotes don't use any power...that's what I'm trying to figure out.

    i have it, you should to, just get rechargeable batteries first, i have 6 and plan on buying more for my 4 wiimotes and sensor bar, the only problem is you have to turn it on and off, and i always forget to turn it off

    ok look at it this way, its wayyy different.
    the Sensor bar is constantly using power as far as i am aware. So that is constantly draining the battery.
    Most tv remotes on use the battery when you press a button. So its only that half a second the button is down that the power is used.
    what are you talking about anypower tv remotes need batteries
