I thought this would be an appropriate place to post this. I have run into a few occasions where people are looking for alternatives from the OEM wii sensor bar. I am in no way associated with this company, but I did buy 2 products from them, the USB Powered sensor bar and the extension cable. here are the options:
  • "HD" extra wide sensors bar - USB powered

  • Extension cable (I received an email stating it was in-wall rated)

  • Sensor eyes intead of a bar...for projector applications.



The USB powered bar works great as it plugs into the TV's USB port, but it also comes with an AC plug with a USB port on the back for house outlet power option as well.

Just wanted to update this post now that the Wii-U is out.
No need to hook up a new "sensor" bar, nor use both sensor bars if you plan on keeping Wii and Wii-U. If you have a powered (USB) "sensor" bar, it powers on with the TV power and will work for both consoles.
Wii-U is supposed to be backwards compatible for most games too, and I will be picking up one of the Mario Bros/Luigi delux bundles up for the boys this year for xmas.
Having this bar will speed things up the install! smile.gif
