    Does Wii work with projectors?

    Was wondering if anyone has used their Wii with a media projector? What was the results? Picture quality? Did controllers work? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I don't have a Wii yet but I did find this article: http://www.projector-news.com/projec...rojectors.html for you. Hopefully it helps to answer your question.

    If the wires aren't long enough there are third party wireless sensor bars available.

    Ok, here's another question. Does it work with the units that project the image onto a wall or screen? Just curious

    The Wii itself and the controllers don't care how the image gets from the system into your eyes, CRT, front projector, rear projector, etc.

    The only potential issues would be the sensor bar placement, but as has been mentioned already, a wireless bar is available. Also, for a projector, you need to be able to stand in front of your screen (3 to 8 feet away) without blocking the projector, otherwise you'll just have a big shadow of yourself.
