General Hardware Talk / Wii / Projector Problems
« on: August 05, 2014, 05:10:26 AM »
I have connected my Wii to a video matrix which sends all signals from my DVD, Cable Box, and Wii to an overhead projector depending upon which selection is made.

When I select the Wii the picture is there, but it is in black and white with plenty of lines, etc on the screen. Looks kind of like an old analog TV signal back in the day.

Any ideas? I am using composite cables, but have component if necessary. Just didn't think the nature of this problem would be solved by a cable change.

Thanks for your help!!!!!!!!!!!

General Hardware Talk / double remote recognition problem

Both remotes have new batteries. Both remotes work perfectly when connected individually to the Wii. Neither remote will work as the second remote and the on screen shows that the second remote has no battery. Have unplugged Wii and rebooted but the problem persists. Any ideas?

I don't know why but whenever I rearrange channels in the wii menu my wii makes a sound like it's trying to read the disc, even though the disc is already inserted and is working fine. Does anyone know why this happens?

I would suggest you to update the Bluetooth peripheral device and check if it helps:

a)      Click on Start button.

b)      In the search box type devmgmt.msc and then press Enter.

c)      Select the Bluetooth peripheral device and right click on it

d)      Now select Update.

e)      Restart your computer.


If the issue still persists, you need to contact the manufacturer for further assistance.

You can't watch DVD or full-length movies, but you can stuff video onto a SD Card (2GB maximum) and stream it through the Wii.

1) Download the movie to your PC. It should be noted that downloading movies, or "ripping" content from studios without paying for them through a legitimate site (like is a crime. You can be prosecuted and face a stiff fine and jail time. However, assuming you rightfully paying for the files, download them.

2) Convert into the correct format. In order for you to play movies on your Nintendo Wii, they must be in one of the following formats: DivX, Avi, MPG or MOV. (Some files may already be in these formats.) If not, download "Virtual Dub" (by searching in your favorite search engine). It's free and it will make sure your files are in the correct format.

3) Download Wii Video 9. This is the integral program which will serve as the program which actually plays the file on the Wii. It is free to download, and literally only takes minutes to open.

4) Purchase an SD Card. The bigger the card the better. But make sure it's at least 2GB. These can be found on ebay, or at Circuit City or Best Buy.

5) Insert SD Card. Place the SD card into your computer and save the video file (which should now be in the correct format) on the SD card.

6) Place SD card in your Nintendo Wii. Place the SD card in the wii. Then turn the setting to the "photo channel," use your controller to press play and sit back and enjoy your movie! Congratulations, you have just learned how to watch movies on your Nintendo Wii.

You can get a 2GB SD card here:

Accelerometers are dynamic measurement devices. The piezoelectric elements create a charge when deformed. However, that charge is quickly dissipated due to voltage leakage. For eample, they are good for cyclic vibrations that induce sinusoidal accelerations (a vibrating piece of machinery), but they do not work under a continuous acceleration (like gravity).

Honestly, I think that the accelerations are going to be so small that your measured signal is going to get lost in the usual noise of a system. However, it's easy enough to set up. Give it a go.

1. Attach the Nunchuk to your Wii remote by inserting the Nunchuk plug into the connector outlet located on the bottom of your Wii remote. Push the Nunchuk plug in until you hear it click into place.

2.Hold the Nunchuk with your thumb on the analog stick and your pointer finger on the "Z," or "Trigger" button. Hold the Wii remote and the Nunchuk in front of you, pointed at your TV to prepare for game play. Use the Nunchuk for your weaker hand in games like boxing.

3. Employ the Wii Nunchuk as a standard remote, with the analog stick controlling character movements, when playing games such as Zelda. The targeting control for the game is done by using the "Z" button.

4. Use the Nunchuk for more accuracy in games like Mario Kart Wii. The analog stick gives more control to your movements than the gaming wheel and cuts down on the paraphernalia cluttering your living room.
