    Since I use the same display for a real wii and that it's actually a tv, I would rather use an eight diode sensor bar for this purpose.

    My hack job works like a charm.

    Radio Shack Power Adapter #273-1696
    Radio Shack 6" Power Lead #273-1742

    Cut your sensor cord.
    Strip it back and separate the wires.
    Red is power, orange is ground.
    Solder the red wire to the black/white stripe wire of the power lead.
    Solder the orange wire to the black wire of the power lead.
    Set up your sensor bar by your screen.
    Plug in the brick.
    Play Wii.

    Note that the Wii normally puts out 7.8 v. I have the adapter set to 7.5 and it works fine.

    Yeah. I already did this in 2006.
    Like I did say, I am going to make it like a more official sensor bar.


    Easier? Yeah.
    More Simple? Yeah.
    Less expensive? Yeah.
    What I want? Not really.

    Edit: Besides, I set my sensor bar at the bottom of the display.

    I have the Nyko Wireless Sensor Bar. you can get the same one on ebay for only 7 dollars now. i like it a lot better than the wired one... i can move much further away from it and still use the wiimotes for aiming.
    Even the best fall down sometimes.

    My guess is that the wii would handle the current draw of a second bar the question is if the bar wireless operates on 6 volts which is what the wii puts out. AA and AAA batteries are 1.5 volts so just do some quick math to figure that out.

    Edit: Now im questioning myself. It may be 12 volts out of the wii. You need to verify that!
