Is it only with one program or have you tried others?  What other troubleshooting steps have you taken?


Plus this is your second post on this the last one I moved to Smoothboard forums, I would suggest you use that one.

Hi,

Please take a look at the other post in the forum.
http://www.wiimoteproject.com/wiimote-whiteboard/wiimote-goes-crazy/msg10866/#msg10866 (http://www.wiimoteproject.com/wiimote-whiteboard/wiimote-goes-crazy/msg10866/#msg10866)

Most probably you did not calibrate correctly or there are stray IR sources that interfered with the calibration process.

In Smoothboard, there is a calibration viewer that allows you to see the stray IR sources and also the calibration.

Please ensure that the calibration is correct as shown in the earlier reply I have sent.

Regards.
Boon Jin

Hi

What % utilisation did you get after calibration? Did you know that you will need to calibrate each time you restart the system?  Try getting a different wiimote to rule out a defective wiimote.

Look at the bottom of the Dialohe box do you see the number 1 2 3 4 flashing? Or do you only see "1" while you are clicking the IR-Pen.

Read: http://www.boonjin.com/smoothboard/index.php?title=Mount_and_position_the_Wiimote#Positioning_the_Wiimote for help with improving your utilisation.
