    we have extended a Wii bar with cat 6 which has been working intermittently.

    The controller works on RF but no magic finger after a while.

    What is the voltage meant to be for the bar?
    I'm getting 11.8v from the back of the wii and 11.7v at the wii bar 15m away.
    Voltage seems ok then?

    Any othe suggestions or is it just too far away?

    Cheers

    What's a cat 6?
    Have you tried adjusting the sensitivity in the Wii settings menu?

    You can get wireless bars, might be worth a look? It's just two ir lights after all and the cable is for power, not data.

    I can't imagine the bar is so sensitive to voltage inconsistencies that +/- 0.1v stops it working. Good luck with the wireless bars.
