While testing the software on my PC. I place the Wii so it is pointed at the CRT. The software registers as reading 1-3 different IR sources. There are no IR sources in the room as of yet. Currently making my IR pen(in a different building). When I point the Wiimote away from the CRT, it registers as seeing 0. Is the CRT emitting IR? Could the Wiimote be faulty?

Thanks,
David Raynor

how does your pen look like?
ummm i mean like does it have more then one hole where IR can emit from your pen? that could be the cause of the other source of the extra IR

hope it helps ^^

In a dark room, if you point the Wiimote away from CRT monitor and it registers 0 IR Blob's then direct it to the monitor it registers 0< blobs then yes your monitor must be emitting IR.

If you are working in a room with natural light your monitor could be reflecting sunlight (IR)?

Well I found out I was just holding the Wii too close to the screen. I was thought the closer the better, but on a CRT, there is enough interference for the Wiimote to register multiple sources. After moving it back about 4 feet, it works great.
Thanks for the feedback though,
