I today started working with wiiboard for the first time. I'm using a Toshiba laptop and using the bluetooth app that came along with the laptop.
I have 3 Wiimotes, an original Nintendo (works with another wiiboard so I know it's not faulty) and 2 cheap Chinese ones (one black, one red). All three get recongised from the system, connect with the bluetooth app and appear at the control panel as devices.

The  problem is that Smoothboard only recognises 1 of the 3 wiimotes and it's the black one, not the orginal.  I also tried the original Wiiboard app and again it only recognises the black one.
Any ideas as to how I could make smoothboard recognise the others? I'm not interested in them working silmultaneously, just get them to work seperately.

thanks!

Are you using the latest version of Smoothboard?

You may download Smoothboard Air with Duo from http://www.smoothboard.net/wiimotewhiteboard

I'm using smothboard 2.5 but not Air with duo.

I also tried the red controller on another system and it works fine so it definitely isn't faulty. I forgot to mention that I'm on windows 7, it could be an issue with that.

I'll give air a try

It should work with Windows 7.

Maybe you may try to remove all the HID devices from the Device Manager before trying to connect again.

Also, you may try to configure Smoothboard to connect to multiple Wiimotes. This can be found in Smoothboard->Show Settings->Wiimote
