Hey there,

I'm a teacher trying to make a whiteboard so the school doesn't have to spend thousands on one.  I have an infrared emitter, a wii remote, and the software from Johnny's site.  After successful calibration, the mouse fails to respond to motion of the emitter.  What should I do to fix this?

I am running Windows 7; does that affect things?

Thanks,

Mr. Bever

Thanks very much, I just tried it and now my mouse works, but only as a selector (it doesn't just point, it grabs stuff).  Any suggestions to make it so I control the pointer without it selecting everything?  Again thank you for helping me get this working.
