Is it possible to have two sensor bars going at once?
yeah sure its possible, the real question is why?, who wants to play the wii while looking at the back of the TV?
The same Wii's video output would go to two different TV's facing opposite directions, one player on each TV..
How would I get this to work?
get a wireless sensor bar.......not sure maybe you could just splice 2 sensor bars onto the one plug.....or stick 2 candles on your TV and do it that way
the sensor bar is just a set of infrared leds (protip, use a camera or a phone to see the leds while you have wii ON)
you can even use 2 candles instead of the sensor bar...
or if you got good sunlight, you can make 2 small holes on a cardboard, leting sun go through them and there ya go...
but best way for you should is get a wireless sensor bar and put it where you want it, you can use the normal one connected too
the wire on the sensor bar is just for power, (its just a set of lights turned on, really)
you can even power it using a AA battery (not sure about the voltage that requires)... but it would work. so it doesn't need to be connected to the wii or anything, just needs the lights to be ON...
you could probably also use a mirror...
however 2 sensor bars can cause a slightly sensitive issue.. i can't play wii on sunny days with windows full open, the sun can be a hassle
but a sensor bar is kinda weak and shouldn't be a problem...
@migles, would it be possible to put LED lights above/below the TV?
if they provide infrared light yes..
you will need 2 leds or you can have several togueter, as long as its 2 light sources with some distance...
pick your phone or camera look to the sensor bar to give you an idea how its seted up
i think you could use old tv remote leds.. if you have old remotes you dont use, take of the light, (you need 2) and make some DIY sensor bar...
you would need to know some electronics because you know voltages and etc.. make it safe.. so you don't make some fire hazard...
Apparently you can buy USB sensor bars for $12
That should work (: thanks @migles & @gamesquest1
like i said, its a set of lights with a source of power (like a battery), of course you could use the power from a usb port
if your tv has a usb port on the back you can use it as power source, or a usb wall socket
(i didnt remember usb power was an option, don't blame me i still didnt get a recent phone)
Some of those aftermarket sensor bars don't have a very good range. You'd be better off buying an original Nintendo branded sensor bar.
2 sensor bars 1 wii
you could use a usb port on the wii to power the usb sensor bar if you really had some reason to do this sort of thing
get a wii u, one person plays on the TV one person pisses off to another room with the gamepad and plays using the gamepad, that happens to have a sensor bar built in and no need to get a second TV hooked upto it
check out this page about sensor bars.
I THINK you can have 2, but im not sure if it even has two slots for them LOL
Or two candles...or two incandescent flashlights. You need two IR sources.
A wireless bar is pretty inexpensive on eBay, but as mentioned earlier licensed N bars are going to have better range.
i have 2 sensor bars. one on top of the other. one is for wii and 1 for wii u. turn on both consoles and i can have both on...
