Using a Wii/Wii U with a projector

What's the best way to do this? I've tried wireless sensor bars before with my TV, and they never worked very well. Are there IR emitters I could buy and place beneath my screen (preferably behind AT fabric)?

Re: Using a Wii/Wii U with a projector

Putting the sensor behind even an AT screen would reduce the sensitivity of picking up the Wii motes Ive been using a wireless bar sitting right on top of my centre channel under the screen and that works well.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Re: Using a Wii/Wii U with a projector

i didnt have a problem connecting my wii to a projector. If its like my parents projector it has several different visual connections, just do a trial and error to figure out which is the right one. As for the audio just put it whatever stereo setup you got(like surround or w/e). Thats how i got mine to work, but ever projector is different so who knows. Good luck though

Re: Using a Wii/Wii U with a projector

Hi,
You shouldn't have a problem using a sensor. Place your Wii in a position near or beneath the locations of the projected image. Place the sensor bar above or directly beneath the projected image, but try to keep it at a level roughly central to the ceiling and the floor. Place your projector on the opposite side of the room.
