    I got a brand new Wii Remote with built in Motion Plus (the box it came in says it is for Wii U, but works with Wii) the other day. I have a CBHC modded Wii U with 5.5.3 FW, and vWii.

    Every time I turn on my Wii U, I have to sync my Wii remote for it to work on my Wii U, otherwise, I turn it on, and all 4 LED's blink continuously.

    What can I do to resolve this? Once synced, it works fine.

    Weird...

    Don't know if this will help. Try deleting all former pairing. and then pair your wii remotes anew after.

    Is it third-party?
    Sounds like the Wii Remote is failing to store the information of the console it's paired to. It could be a faulty flash chip in the remote or a faulty Bluetooth module.
    If you can, I'd try returning it.
