Wiimote Smoothboard / Re: imprecise ir pen position
« on: May 11, 2011, 10:07:56 AM »
The offset of the mouse cursor appears immediately after calibration?

The projector may be moving instead. A very slight change in the position may affect the cursor position.

What do you mean by "offset of the mouse cursor?" If you mean the popping up of the cursor after calibration so yes, it appears immediately. Also, please stop suggesting that something is moving! It isn't! I know that "a very slight change in the position may affect...", and I wouldn't bother to share with you my problem if I didn't check before such basic things. The thing is that the cursor is a bit away from the IR pen and I do not know why. As I said before, everything was ok until the projector was mounted in the ceiling. What is strange is that only in the centre of the screen the cursor is misplaced.

It's like this: I've been using smoothboard fot the past 2 years, everything was fine until today. The problem is that I somehow cannot get the mouse cursor in the right position in certain places on the projected screen. The wiimote was placed in the same place as usual, the difference might be that, for the first time, I mounted the projector on the ceiling - that's all. Now in the centre of the screen the mouse cursor is misplaced by about 2 inches. How to get this right, help appreciated.

Hi,

If the setup is the same, it should be working like normal.

During the calibration, are you able to click on the four calibration points properly?

Usually, the accuracy of the positioning of the mouse cursor depends on the calibration made. Also, after calibration the setup should be fixed in place. If the Wiimote is not placed securely, vibrations may cause the Wiimote to move slightly which may cause in displacement of the mouse cursor.

The thing is the setup is the same! The wiimote is placed securely in a wiimote stand as usual so the are no vibrations and there never were. Yes, I am able to click 4 points... don't make me laugh:)
Could this be due to the ceiling mounting of the projector? Before the problems started I had the projector placed on a table.

IR Pens / Re: IR pen gallery
« on: January 10, 2010, 02:11:56 PM »
Just wanted to show a pen I made. I don't especially know what type of ir led is inside but works well. It was taken out from an old tv remote.

cheers,

Wiimote Smoothboard / Re: smootboard won't see my wiimote

Hi

1. What error message do you get when smoothboard/smoothconnect runs.
2. Did you set smoothboard to 1 wiimote? From earlier post you uninstalled the HID keyboard not the Bluetooth HID devices.
3. By the way what method did you use to  connect the wiimote manually.
4. Did you disable your inbuilt bluetooth adapter if there is one? 
5. Can you give a screenshot of your device manager after installing the wiimote.
6. There should only be 1 Bluetooth HID/virtual HID device if you set for 1 wiimote.

Hi hagoh,
1. The smoothboard won't open, just keeps connecting repetitively. Only after I open the programme by clicking "open whiteboard" (I have a Polish version) it says it something like "it couldn't find a HID device on the list". (I hope that's a thorough translation)
2. I have 1 wiimote. I uninstalled all HID devices I could find in the device manager. What else and where can I find other or bluetooth devices?
3. To connect I clicked the bluetooth icon in the taskbar and followed the on-screen instructions pressing 1+2 buttons.
4. I don't have an inbuilt bluetooth device.
5. I could give you a screenshot but it's in Polish. I don't suppose you would understand it. 
6. The smoothboard shows one wiimote in the opening programme window (and one address).

Hi

You should uninstall all Bluetooth HID/ virtual HID devices. Then launch Smoothboard. After smoothboard starts then press 1+2 button on your wiimote. Smoothconnect would then learn and connect the wiimote.

Hope that helps

Hi
I tried that but with no effects.

Hi Boon Jin,

The adress of the wiimote is displayed. It just keeps connecting even if I press 1+2 buttons. When those buttons are pressed, there is information in the taskbar that bluetooth peripheral device is being installed.

There is one thing that could be of importance here: I don't have an original MS bluetooth device incorporated into my laptop. When put into the laptop it begins to install MS drivers.

Wiimote Smoothboard / smootboard won't see my wiimote
« on: November 13, 2009, 12:11:43 PM »
I cannot connect my wiimote via smoothconnect feature. Earlier I thought it could be caused by the trial version. Any ideas? I work on vista, 32, microsoft bluetooth drivers. I've tried Pentabulous and it connects smoothly. When starting smoothboard it says found 1 connected 0. I tried to uninstall HID keyboard as one person did in this forum but with no effects. I have to install it manually in order to use smoothboard.

Another problem I came across is that on screen keyboard doesn't work. When needed to be clicked the cursor stops and does not respond.

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Re: wiimote goes crazy...
« on: November 12, 2009, 03:17:43 PM »
Well, the setting is much the same with only one difference. I left my projector at school, therefore using the wiimote directed at my notebook. Could that be the cause?

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / wiimote goes crazy...
« on: November 12, 2009, 01:38:28 PM »
...I've been using my wiimote for last two days, everything was smooth and fine but today it went crazy. Now when I switch it on and connect to the computer the screen behaves in a strange way and is uncontrollable. The wiimote sends, I think, a signal and does not reply to calibration or ir pen. It does what it wants. What could be the cause? Maybe it is the wiimote? - a fake?
help please,

So, now having a Wii remote and an ir pen I just have to download smoothboard software and that's it? just like that? There's no need to download the original Johny's software?
