This device is absolutely amazing, it really is. The sheer ease of use is what really sells this product and Mayflash has once again shown that they know what the people want.
Setting it up is kinda easy once you know what to do. It took a bit long to figure out what to do, so let me help you. Note I didn't bother with the included CD for a variety of reasons (notably I don't have a built in drive on my machine).
* there is no driver required nor available. Try as I might to find one, it doesn't exist.
* there is a firmware update, and as it's tiny and easy to install, we'll start there.
1) Download the firmware update at http://www.mayflash.com/support/download/ (look for W010
Wireless Sensor DolphinBar MAYFLASH DolphinBar)
2) Unrar it (need to do this twice) and run updater (note sensor bar not plugged in)
3) while holding synch, plug sensor bar into usb port (a good quality extender should work, but unpowered hubs not recommended)
4) after plugging in and releasing synch, option to install firmware will pop up; Update firmware (take a second, as it's tiny)
5) there's a hardware switch for above and below TV placement on the back of the bar (never seen one of those), so fill that out. Also change to mode 4
6) Make sure your copy of Dolphin is a recent one from dolphin-emu.org (not dolphin-emulator.com--that caused hours of issues!)
7) Pair Wiimote(s) and everything should work with default settings. You may want to verify "continuous scanning" is enabled on the controller settings (I believe it was defaulted to on).
* note that the Wii Remotes will automatically turn off in time, but using the power button will turn it off sooner.
* all accessories (classic controller, nunchuck, etc...) should work
* four controllers should work
* I got 90-95% OEM Wii sensor bar performance (it has a harsher cut off than I recall, but when pointed at the screen, it works great).
* remember that Dolphin like a Wii has a software setting for above/below TV placement
* the cable is disgracefully short, though it does kind help in cable routing, as you basically run the extender cable to the TV and plug this in there. I had no issues with a quality (though only $6-8) USB 2.0 extension cable. There are reported issues with unpowered hubs.
My biggest hardware issue came from not knowing what mode to use (If everything else wasn't so good I'd deduct a star). 1&2 aren't really for gaming. 3 kinda works, but it's not what you want. Choose mode 4. Note you can change modes with the Wiimote (press home and the D pad--each direction corresponds to a different mode). The biggest issue overall is downloading from the wrong site. It's latest version wasn't recent and simply wouldn't work. Use mode 4 and a recent version from dolphin-emu.org, and you should be fine!
Wii controllers can be a bit picky about what Bluetooth adapter they're willing to pair with, especially the Motion Plus controllers. This bar has the bluetooth controller built in, so you don't even have to worry about it. A lot of other sensor bars don't have the correct positioning of the IR LEDs that the WiiMote uses to determine location - this one does.
There are a couple downsides. The first is that this bar can't be turned on/off automatically by Dolphin, it runs all the time, which will burn it out eventually. The best thing to do is just unplug it from your PC when not in use. The other downside is that it has 4 modes, 3 of which are pretty useless. One of them is for using the WiiMote as a mouse for presentations. While this may seem like a good idea, the WiiMote isn't exactly the most accurate pointing device, your pointer will be all over the screen. I really haven't tried the other modes, but I can't imagine them being much better. Just leave it in Mode 4 and use it for Dolphin and you'll be very happy with it.
The ONLY downside I have with the device is that the cable is quite short (the bar itself is wired, it connects via USB so the "wireless" part in the title is something of a misnomer as it refers to the Wii remotes which are ALL wireless) so you will probably need an extension cable if you plan to play the game on a TV. Amazon sells pretty cheap extensions though (Amazon Basics) so that shouldn't be an issue.
