Anyone tried the wireless Wii sensor bar ? I'd like to move our room around (build in progress) so that all the gear is at the rear of the room and the only thing at the front will be 3 speakers and the screen (maybe the sub but it can be at the back of the room). The gear stand is 800 mm high and between that is a well padded leather couch at 900 mm and probably the Wii players - so will this setup work ?
I'm not sure what you're asking here exactly?
It sounds like you think the sensor bar communicates with the Wii console,it doesn't.
It just has a series of LEDs in it that the controller sees, to detect where you are pointing.You can see these with a digital camera.
It's not really a sensor bar at all,it should be called a light bar if anything.
The only reason it is even connected to the console is to provide the power to illuminate the LEDs.
You can use 2 spaced candles instead of the sensor bar if you wanted to,but this would be a fire hazard and more expensive than batteries.
So in short,the wireless sensor bar will work exactly the same as the wired one with the exception of having to replace batteries.
As long as your AV cables are long enough (Component cables recommended) everything will work fine.
I run about 10 metres of Component cables to my Wii with my projector setup and have no issues at all.
If you are using a very large screen you may have to space the series of LEDS further apart than standard to get accurate tracking.
Hope this helps.
