    it just seems if you put the sensor directly in front of tv it works better but thats not very
    Pratical thing to do when playing a game.

    think of the wii remote more like a mouse rather than turning your tv into touch sensitive.
    What i mean by that is you have to learn where you are pointing the cursor rather than the wii learn where you are actually pointing

    you can go and change the sensitivity and sensor position on the wii settings menu. The sensitivity option is really for how far away you are if you have a big screen stand further back and put sensitivity up

    I do wish the wii had a calibration setting so you could map the screen instead

    weird things can effect the pointer, we had big problems at a friends house with the gas fire of all thing, not sure if it was the heat or the actual reflective grill on the front of the fire. halogen lights are also known to effect it.
