    Just setting up our 555 and the website states that the Wii uses Bluetooth technology and cannot be used with this remote.

    I didnt even release it used Bluetooth!

    It may be same for the 880 ??

    I assume you're aware that you can power up the Wii with the Wii remote?

    Obviously if you wanted to use the Wii, you would have the Wii remote to hand anyway, so it's not really an issue.

    You can still set it up as a device to make setting up activities a bit easier, you just can't control it.
