but there is problem. when i want to write with this pen , doesn't work good like the videos that you uploaded in net . i read the user guide and notice to notification but didn't solve . i guess the reflex of a LED it's not good and not durable . i am working with "Scope Screen" that is not glassy screen and it is about 70 inch.what is the pen problem and LED?maybe wiimote can't see the IR from away. what should I do?
thanks

You may want to purchase a ready made IR Pen. This will save you a lot of time troubleshooting the issue.

It may at least eliminate the issues if there are with a self-made IR pen.

You can place the Wiimote as close a possible to the screen by adjusting the position with the use of the Smoothboard's Calibration Viewer.
