          Spud,

          Everything seems to be working great, I am trying your XBMC PI and using the wii as a remote control for it

          I have found for me the position is not very useful as I tend to aim it up or straight alot and not think about it so I get false actions, if i just use the buttons for actions it works perfect.

          Have not tried yet, but I assume you can use multiple Wii remotes (instances)?

          Thanks,
          Steven G

            Thanks for the feedback!
            Of course using the position is not mandatory, using the buttons only, work just fine. Adding a condition on the the position is just a way to use the same button to trigger different events.

            The current version of the plugin (3.0.0.0) does not support multiple instances (multiple remotes), but it is something quite easy to add.

                Yes it does support remote instance
                But right now it only support one instance (remote or not). I will add support for multiple instances soon

                  Sounds good. Wonder if it would be possible to use the speaker for anything like announcements..

                    I can easily add actions to control the rumble and LEDs (Note that you can already controls the LEDs using HS devices), but using the speaker is technically more challenging.

                            Have you tried to run wiipair.exe as Administrator?
                            the pairing process is a little picky, I frequently have to do it several times before it works correctly.

                            does this support multiple remote instances yet
                            yes it supports multiple instances, I haven't actually tested a remote instance but it should work as well.
