Important Note: If you have not already done so, be sure to set the Sensor Bar option in the Wii console's System Setting to 'Above TV' or 'Below TV' to match your setup. This setting is important to ensure a proper response when using the Wii Remote. Place the cursor over the option that reflects how you have your Sensor Bar setup (above or below the screen) and press the A Button. Select 'Confirm' to save the selection.
