Accessories / Remote Control for On-Off and 3v adaptor
« on: March 06, 2010, 02:08:26 AM »
After experimenting with On-Off remote like in this post
It turns out to be easy to change the jumper, as seen on the picture.

And I am planning to sell this for USD 50

The specification:
1. No rechargeable battery involved
2. Integrated remote control receiver and adaptor
3. 2.99 to 3.00 voltage output
4. Include Automatic Voltage Regulator
5. Customized cable length for DC cable or AC cable
6. LED indicator for channel A or channel B
7. No soldering required in the wiimote
8. Using standard adaptor connector, not audio connector
9. 256 different frequency combinations (2^8)
10. 2A transformer for durable continuous usage

General Hardware Talk / Remote Control for On-Off

I buy a remote control with on-off function, and then test it with 3 volt leds, this could be the solution for remote control of wiimote.

The remote is powered by AC, so no need power adaptor, the seller said it can achieve 50 meters with line of sight, but I don't test it that way, what I test is I bring the remote away for about 15 mtrs blocked by 4-5 walls and it still works.

I read it here that there is a concern about interfering frequency that other remote can trigger the led, and the concern is valid, because when I use another remote, it triggers the led, but I have not change the jumper yet, so more experiments are needed to conclude better judgement.

In the mean time, I will synchronize the jumper between the remote and the receiver and will let you know the outcome.

Wiimote Smoothboard / Layout for Presenter & Whiteboard
« on: July 12, 2009, 08:37:25 PM »
About Layout for Presenter & Whiteboard, if we put wireless sensor bar at the bottom/top of the screen and put "infrared camera" wiimote with d=2h distance, which I assume it should be around 45 degree to the screen, and probably see the infrared light in the sensor bar.

Will the new infrared source (from the pen) conflict with sensor bar ?
If we switch from Presenter & Whiteboard to just Presenter, can we just switch the mode and take the primary wiimote as presenter wiimote ?
What is the farthest distance between the pen and tracking wiimote, assuming using commercial pen ?

I didn't try this, because I don't have the pen yet.

Suggestion, in glovepie, I can open the script for configuring wiimote as mouse with or without the sensor bar, indeed, it should be back and forth of opening the script, but it is useful if we don't have the sensor bar, eventhough the navigation is terrible.

General Hardware Talk / Nyko Wireless Nunchuk

This is info from my experience, I can't pair the wiimote with the nunchuk in my home, the blue light in the wiimote dongle won't blink, but when at the store, it is instantly paired, may be because I don't have Wii console, so I guess there must be some connection established first between Wii and dongle, just my observation though.

Great forum here.
