Change your settings and it works like a charm...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HDE Wired Infrared Sensor Bar for Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
I bought a used Wii and it didn't come with a sensor bar so I decided to try this product. The box it comes in is worth a chuckle if only for the terrible English on the outside of the box. I plugged this in a was initially disappointed to discover a range of maybe 3 feet.
IMPORTANT: increase the sensor bar sensitivity settings via the Wii settings menu. I did this and it works 8 feet away with no problem (I haven't tested further distances). If you're looking for an inexpensive replacement for your Wii infrared sensor bar, then look no further - this will work.
Note: I docked the product one star for the lack of documentation on changing the sensor bar settings; many people would not know to change it in the Wii settings and could be disgruntled that it doesn't work effectively out of the box.
