Now, I noticed in other posts that folks talk of genuine black and non-genuine white remotes.  The remote in Johnny's video is white as are mine.  Are these not genuine?

Well, second remote and same problem.  They are both factory Wii remotes, but I *did* get them both from the same seller.

Boon Jin -- I have a contact triggered type from irpens in UK.  On the wiimote, is there a special source I should use to find a replacement?  I simply searched for the cheapest new in the box before.

hagoh88--Thanks.  A little gun-shy about purchasing another new wiimote, but I think you are right.  My tracking percentage has been 5-15%.

Hi.  Newbie, obvioso.  I have read a ton of stuff, downloaded tutorials, got all the parts and it works, right off the bat.  Woohoo!  However, I find that the wiimote has a useful width of way less than the 45 degrees touted by Johnny Lee and that it just does not work with a standard classroom size 8' x 6' projector screen.  What am I doing wrong?  I just now spent an hour and a half trying some 40+ positions, angles, heights, whatever, and all I get is a useful screen area of about 2' horizontally and 1' vertically.  To reitereate, it works, and works fine within that space, and works fabulously when the wiimote is pointed toward the laptop as well (obviously it is well within 2' x 1').  Otherwise, though, useless.  Any idea?  As I say, I am certain this brand new wiimote has not only a very very narrow operating range, but also cannot be more than four or five feet from the screen or it doesn't work at all.
