    1 Wii, 2 Tvs. Possible?

    Hi
    Ive been looking this up a bit online, but it seems most people want to share one Wii between two TVs at the same time. I'm really looking to switch between two tvs.

    The main reason is to have access to Netflix in the bedroom, and play games in the living room. But a few games while lounging in bed doesnt sound that bad either.

    I know I'll have to physically split and run the audio/video cables. The tvs are only about 15 ft apart. My question is the sensor bar. Could I just get a wireless Sensor bar for the bedroom? Exactly how far is the wii's range (through walls)?

    I'll need to be running like 20-30 feet of audio/video cable, and drop 20 bux or some on a wireless sensor bar. So I'm just asking this in case anyone has experience with this? Tutorials? Hints and tips? BEFORE I spend the money.

    Depend on the cost of it all, I may just be better off buying a second Wii. Especially once the Wii U comes out.

    any info would be great. thanks guys!

    I've read reviews about wireless sensor bars that claim a 30ft range from the wii itself. I also remember a time years ago where I went to the kitchen to grab another brewski and my buddies yelled that I was holding up our game of bowling. In my wisdom at the time I took my shot right there in the kitchen, completely in another room and couldnt see the TV. They laughed like hell when I guttered it, but the point was discussed that one could indeed could take a shot if necessary while grabbing a beer or using the restroom.

    So theoretically, yes, it could work. LMAO. Thanks for reminding me about that, I had done forgot lol.

    Spend the money not on video cables and wireless sensor bar.... if you are mainly worried bout Netflix in the bedroom get a Roku.... they are $50 and can do allllllllooooootttttttt

    I've heard of different things that could do stuff like that but never really spent the time searching for details or comparing models. I have always had a bunch of PC's around the house so I used them. When I saw the full HD capability and everything else it had to offer I was hooked in lol.
