Title: Multiple dots/ dots reflections
Post by: thanhplay on February 06, 2008, 05:03:38 AM
Hi Wii people

I got this problem with the my IR-pen. When i run the whiteboard app, it shows the number of dots the wiimote sees/recognise. I only got one diod but sometimes the wiimote recognise 2-3 dots.

Is this somekind of the dot being reflected or something?
Someone got the same problem?
and how to avoid this?

Make sure to switch off light bulbs and other heat emitting sources that are in sight of the Wiimote IR sensor.

I have the same problem you do. It's pretty frustrating, and turning off the lights/heat sources didn't help very much.

I had the same problem when using the whiteboard on my Desktop monitor.
What i did is put a little tape on the side of the LED that is facin the monitor.
Si the LED isn't reflected anymore on the monitor and i got a really incredible precision.
The only problem with that is that if a left handed use my IR pen, it won't work...
