WiiU dual sensor bar help needed...

Hope someone can help me. I just installed a WiiU in a loft bedroom, the center of the room there is a column.There are 2 identical TVs installed 180 degrees apart on the column. Each TV faces 2 single kids beds.
How can I install 2 sensor bars so that each TV has a sensor bar to be used with the WiiU?

There is an existing thread about this, I believe. Try searching the forums.

The existing thread (which is here) was more for 1 large screen than 2 smaller screens. I'd recommend just buying 2 wireless sensor bars (battery powered) for your circumstances - much simpler.

Because it's for smaller kids I would love for simplicity sake to have 2 sensor bars that will turn on when the console turns on. Rather than turning on the console and then turning on 2 separate sensor bars. I wonder if it is just as easy as splicing a sensor bar cable to another sensor bar cable which plugs into the WiiU console?

If you'd rather try connecting two sensor bars together I'd recommend reading through the thread I referenced in my previous post. It's not simple, but I've done it and it works.

The link was in my previous post (#3 above) hyperlinked to the word 'here' in the phrase "which is here".

I don't know what info the other thread contains.
