    alrighty well my tri-wing finally decided to show up, and i've chosen the whole wire method to install my wiikey.. i'm interesed to see where people put the wiikey inside their case w/ wire installs...

    just from a quick glace, there looks to be a lot of space in the back by the sensor bar to put the chip for safe keeping [​IMG]

    You can put it in the same place as the Cyclowiz ... right in the open spot on the dvd surrounding the circuit board.

    I did a wire install and put the chip pretty much in the same place you would do with a quicksolder, just put some electrical/insulation tape between the board and the wiikey and then a bit over the wiikey to keep the wires tidy and keep the chip stuck down. I was able to screw the drive back down fine so there must be a fair bit of space underneath there. [​IMG]

    I think I will do it like Darkforce. The trick is to use cables that are as small as possible. Long cables can give problems.

    Thanks for letting me know there is enough room to do this. I was worried I would need to do long cables.

    You should be able to get it cheap in either a place where sells car spares/accessories or an hardware shop. It costs next to nothing.

    Live near a Home Depot or any other hardware store? I imagine Safeway or any major super market might have some as well. I got 1 roll from Home Depot for under $1. The stuff is not very hard to find at all.
