So, bottom line, do the Wumotes work or not? Was it really a question of software?

Hi,

The fake Wiimotes may work but the quality control may be bad and thus there will be little reliability with these devices.

Examples of problems that may occur is inconsistent connectivity to the computer and very bad tracking sensitivity.

Although with low tracking sensitivity, you are able to use the fake Wiimote in Presenter Mode or in an actual Wii console, for the Wiimote Whiteboard, it may not be suitable. This is because the Wii Remote may be placed at a significant distance away from the screen and in addition to the fact that the IR emitted from the pen is reflected off the screen. This will cause a significant drop in intensity of the detected IR source. If the Wiimote does not have a sensitive camera, you may inconsistent tracking.
