wii placement AV rack in seperate room from theater

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The short story is that my av rack will be about 33 ft away from the screen and in a seperate room from my projection screen. Does the wii console need to be in the same room or just the sensor bar?


pic of the floorplan with the green line showing the path through the ceiling that a cable run will be made for my ir repeater.




thanks for the help

Just the sensor. I used a wireless sensor bar in a similar situation.

You can get a wireless sensor bar, which needs batteries or a wall-wart. It doesn't need to be within any sort of range as it's just a pair of IR LEDs to give the Wii Remote a reference point. The limiter may be the Bluetooth in the Wii Remotes, as they are only good for about 30 feet. Your play area may only be 25 feet away though, so you might be okay.

I will make a suggestion and if this is not allowed mods please remove my post
I have my wii in the next room and it works great the only thing I had to do to make it more enjoyable was to mod the wii for a USB harddrive as having to run back and fourth to change games.

just my 2 cents

My wii is in an AV closet outside of my media room and works fine.

I have a wireless sensor bar.

Bluetooth range may be an issue, but hasnt been for me
