I have all parts working and talking to each other.  When I go to calibrate the Wiimote with my LED light. I cannot. I have moved it all over the place and read all the articles that I could find in where to place the remotes, but nothing.
Help please....the children of our school will really appreciate this....
Thanks

Are you using an infrared LED for your IR pen? The light emitted by the IR LED should not be visible with the naked eye. Instead, you can test your IR pen by using your mobile phones camera to be able to see the infrared emitted by the IR LED.

Here is a detailed guide for positioning and calibrating the Wiimote

If you are sure that the IR pen is working correctly, you can use Smoothboard's calibration viewer (located at the bottom of the Smoothboard's main window). Position and face the IR pen to the front of the Wiimote and activate the IR pen. If at least an IR dot is detected, then the Wiimote and IR pen should be working. However, if you are not be able to detect the IR pen when calibrating on the screen even when you have followed the calibration steps, you may have a non-genuine Wiimote or the battery of the IR pen is low.
