Well, I got it too, cheap ebay wiimote with bad ir tracking (cursor shaking and jumping over the screen)...  :'(

Is that normal for nonoriginal wiimotes (i did try everything, battery, position, leds, lights, tv set, bt stocks, etc)?
Is there some hw/sw hack to improve it to work usable for whiteboard sw?

please suggest ebay seller with original nintendo wiimotes, pm.


sorry for bad English :)

Certain cheap Wiimotes indeed has bad IR tracking.

What IR Pen are you using?

You can just buy the Wiimote from your local game store.
