Connectivity / Re: Still not working for me on my mac

The problem seems to be when I have desktop mirroring on.  I like that on so that I don't have to drag things over so that they show up on my classroom screen. I have to play around with it more, but I could calibrate my laptop screen and the pointer was right at where I was touching when I didn't mirror the desktop, if I have it mirrored it won't work.  I couldn't open anything , need to figure out double clicking and so forth but I got further than I have before!  I will keep playing with it and continue to post.  Thanks for all of your ideas, it's helping me a lot!

I connect every time to Uwe's program.  I click calibrate and it goes to the calibration screen.  I didn't understand your last question.  Do you mean do I point the pen at the wii mote and then go to the screen to touch the cross hairs?  If that is the question then no I don't point it at the wiimote and then go to the screen.  I just walk up to the screen and touch the cross hairs.  Sometimes I get them to go green and most times it doesn't.

I am running Mac OS X, leopard.  I am using a projector onto a screen.  I am a music teacher so I am setting the wiimotes on a stand and pointing it at an angle at the screen.  I have tried multiple angles, have moved it closer to the screen, further away from the screen, way up hi pointing at the screen, sat it on my projector pointing at the screen.  I really don't want to run  it in boot camp, no specific reason.  Hope that helps.

Is there something other than the program that I should download?  I got the pens, made sure they had batteries in them and all of that, got the program to see my wiimote and it's still a 60/40 chance that I can calibrate the board and then once I get it calibrated I still can't open anything.  Is there something else other than the whiteboard application that I should have installed on my computer? 


These are the pens I ordered.

Is there something other than the program that I should download?  I have a mac book, brand new, it finds the wii motes, the crosshairs show up on the screen, I have pens that someone on the internet made and still it's so random if the screen will calibrate?  Anyone have any help?  This is frustrating!

Wiimote Interactive Whiteboard / Mac and wiimote

I am using a macbook with Uwe Schmidt's application.  I have tried to place my wiimote in many different areas and distances from my projector screen but it doesn't let me use my ir pen correctly.
My computer is set up to Mirror the desktop since I don't want to be dragging my applications to the right to show whats on my screen all the time.  I am using Streamlight 65089 Stylus 6-1/4-Inch Penlight Combo, Infrared LED from Amazon with pens on order from John Mitchell.  I get the program to find my wiimote, I go to calibrate the screen and at times it as I am getting on a chair (tall screen) to touch the first area it turns into a green check mark.  I started kind of playing around with it and could actually move the cursor by pointing my pen at the wiimote, is that suppose to happen?  It's like somehow reversed since I would like it to work when I am pointing my pen or touching my pen to the screen.
Any advice it welcomed!
