    Title of thread says it all. Been trying to play a game, however the sensor bar or whatever it is called is not reading the laser from the Wii remote. It has serious problems with lag time and such. Anybody else experience this problem?


    Edit - Never mind. Talked to somebody about it.

    As long as it's not in direct sunlight, should be no problems at all. I've had none anyways.

    because the sensor bar doesnt read anything. the sensor bar is just a source of IR lights for the remote to read, and the cable on it exists only to supply power to the lights. you can unplug the sensor bar and use two candles if you want, it'll work exactly the same.

    any bright light will "drown out" the IR lights on the sensor bar, and christmas lights will make the remote thing there's dozens of sensor bars in front of it, and the cursor will flash and move around on it's own as a result.

    I think you just answered your own question. We all know you're supposed to play video games in a dark, stuffy room without any lights on.
