Did you use the calibration? And how is your setup positioned(is there any sunlight direct in front of it etc...).

I need some more info about your setup, to really help you.

Good, because today when i fired the program up my cursor got crazy and then i saw the sun outside :D.

So you started the program, pressed the calibrate button, calibrated the screen, and then when you used your IR pen your cursor got crazy?

Mines on a 45 degree angle off there to the left.
Height wise, it's directly centered with the middle
of the screen and it's laying pretty flat.
I'd say it is about 2 feet away from my monitor and
it works great. Squiggly lines aren't there and it
reads the whole screen. Hope that helps. ^^

Ok let me check

- Cursor is stays on his place when you dont point you IRpen at the screen?
- Your wiimote can see your IRLed(You hand isnt in from of the led)?
- You can complete the calibration successfully?

Well, i cant see your mouse cursor in the movie. But i do see some Left and Right clicking going on, i supose the right clicking was your mouse? And the left clicks was your IRpen?

If your right handed place your wiimote on the left side, and if your left handed place it on the right. This way you can be almost sure that your hand isnt infront of the LED. And make sure the led is seen with the Wiimote, you can check this by looking at the "Visible IR Dots", if it shows 1 then you alright, if it shows nothing then the wiimote can see your led. And if its shows more then one dot, then the wiimote see your led and some reflected light from the screen and than thats your problem is has multiple dots to place the cursor on. And so i looks to go nuts.

Some issues that I am having is that some spots on my screen it doesn't see at all no matter how much of the pens light it sees it just wont recognize it. I am using the trial version of the Bluesoleil, could it be that you need the full version of it or is it maybe that I need a stronger IR light. Anyone help me with this.
