    Software to correct "off center" Wii motes?

    OK, I've just bought a Wiimote/nunchuck combo from Deal Extreme.... Plugged it in and the cursor is about 8 inches off where I am pointing it (to the right). It's off enough to bother me at least. My official Wiimote is spot on. The cost/time of returning the Wiimote is not worth it (cost me $20).

    Is there software out there that can correct this issue, by forcing input in the opposite direction to compensate for the inaccuracy? The remote is fine in every other way.

    Nope, if you can't adjust it out by calibrating it in Wii settings then take the $20 loss. Cheaper is not always better. My guess is, it's in the calibration or alignment of the IR camera in the Wiimote itself.

    I bought two of those for the hell of it to play around with because they were only like $11 or $12 USD. They are complete junk and there is no way to fix them to my knowledge. I took one apart to play with the insides and I found a use for the other one. It permanently resides in my DJ Hero controller so I don't have to plug in one of the 4 official Nintendo controllers my family use whenever I want to play DJ Hero. It works just fine as a bluetooth dongle. lol

    Ah well.. You get what you pay for. I really would have thought that there would have been some homebrew that would have allowed you to adjust the input via the software though.

    EDIT: Just ordered the 3 slotted screwdriver for Wii and an additional GENUINE remote. Let's hope I can fix the dodgy one
