Strange... You and I are getting different results. I just turned out all the lights in the room and covered up one side of my bar and the cursor didn't work. I uncovered and it worked fine. I then covered the other side of the bar and again, nothing.
That is wierd. I will check again tomorrow Krafter and respond. Thanks for your insight.

If this works, it would prove your theory about triangulation; also, the link that was provided mentioned distance and lighting as being a factor for obtaining the pointer. So, in effect, I believe you suffer from weak and degraded LEDs.
I counted 5 LEDs on each side of the sensor for a total of 10, and that's for both my wired and wireless sensors.

And I'm the one who told you to check with a different sensor bar to see if it was your own sensor bar. I helped someone.

Your sensor bar should NOT work with 1 side covered or at least in an EXTREMELY small "viewing angle".
The remote works out where the pointer should be based on where the sensor bars leds are "lighting up".
If you want increase range, you can make your own sensor bar with them further apart, etc.
Its probably just a sensor bar issue as you have been total, there is no voodoo going on here from what i have read and nothing that needs confirming.
