    Hello,

    I wonder if we can connect a guitar Guitarr Hero for PC to the Wii.
    Wii guitar is a Bluetooth device that you can connect to a PC.
    PC guitar is also a Bluetooth device, but you need a USB receiver to the PC for it to work.
    Anyone who has tried to connect USB guitar receiver on the Wii USB port?
    I do not know if the Wii would damage if I try to connect my PC guitar receiver on the Wii.
    Is there software that can make possible to use PC guitar on Wii glovepie do vice versa?

    I'm gonna say probably not.
    The Wii (or specifically, its games) doesn't work with bluetooth devices not designed for it. Even if you could connect it, the game wouldn't know how to read the buttons. Same reason Wii U Pro Controllers and the official GameCube USB adapter don't work in Wii games, even though they work in homebrew.

    Are you sure the PC guitar is using Bluetooth?
    Both of mine are standard corded Xbox 360 controllers, meaning they use XInput.
    To my knowledge, no one has implemented XInput on the Wii.

    Yes, I am sure, there is wireless but you need the USB receiver that comes with the guitar when you buy it.
    That's why I was wondering if it could connect the USB receiver to the Wii and using software to translate PC signals guitar to Wii and play Guitar Hero.
