    Like someone else on here I skipped the plasma tv step unlike the vendors want me to and have a big living room with my a/v equipment in the back of a big room, a wall, and a high end projector. My Wii is practically useless and I am considering giving it to my bro as a gift because: the sensor is useless needing to be atop the wall lol and its wire way too short. This is for starters, with this hang up my wii has sat in the box since I bought it days ago on ebay because I don't have time to deal with this bs. Nintendo fix this or you're gonna lose guys like me. any serious, simple solutions, email jamesvaughn@gmail.com

    put the sensor bar behind you where your av equipment is at the back of the room
    then install a mirror thats the same size as your screen
    then just play with your back to the screen

    could take some getting used to though :yikes:
    at least nintendo wont lose you :scared:

    :shifty:

    its so easy to make your own sensor bar or find something that works as a sensor bar its just a bunch of little lights that the human eye can't see in fact the lights in my family room effect my wii remote sometimes so i have to turn them off.

    What's wrong with candles placed half a metre away from each other and in front of the TV screen. No one has a lounge room that's so huge that the length of the sensor bar wiring is 'too short' to be used.

    There's always the option of getting a food tray by the television and setting the sensor bar there, that's what I did with mine.

    while you wait for your wireless bar in the mail, i've heard rumors that two lit candles work just as good.

    Just put some Christmas lights around your TV....festive AND effective!!! (btw...I actually did use the Christmas lights on our tree this weekend so I didn't have to turn them off...it worked just as good as the sensor bar :))

    original poster replies (projector owners wiiker gaming experience)

    1) The Nintendo manual seems to believe the games work best with the sensor bar atop the tv, which is impossible when using a wall which being my screen I don't want to stick anything into.

    2) There are nearly 40 feet between my screen and the lounge area where people playing would sit, the projector being yet behind them. I am serious not bragging, only asking for help. I imagine someone who tries to incorporate a Wii into a public place will run into similar difficulties likewise the Paul Allens, etc.

    3) It seems a wireless sensor bar may work. But in my brief research there seems room for someone to make a very high quality one still which not only serves as a generic Nintendo replacement but exceeds its precision, the loss of which I am most concerned about & hence my bro still is likely getting a bonus present. For his sake, don't help me Nintendo lol.

    Thanks guys for the helpful and also not so helpful but witty posts. ;)

    I just remembered, I heard you clip the wires and attach a 9volt battery to your sensor bar. Since the wire is only used for power.
