Blaming that poor gaming performance on the delay between your Nintendo Wii Remote (Wiimote) and the game play? Well, it is not too far fetched. Depending on the configuration of your system, you could experience some game play experience issues with your Nintendo Wii.
Want to fix it? Here is how you can:
If you are experiencing delayed reactions when playing your Nintendo Wii, start with checking your connections.
Do you have the Wii connected through a DVR, such as a TiVo, or satellite system with a built-in DVR?
If you are, it is recommended connecting the Wii directly to the TV or VCR and not the DVR device like a Tivo or cable box. Many of these devices intentionally create a slight delay in displaying the picture (since they are recording), which makes it appear as though you are getting a delayed reaction from your controller.
Are you connected to a projection TV? Some models of projection TVs may cause a delay when playing video games. Try another television and test for proper response.
If you have removed all devices like those described above, and have tried another TV, but are still experiencing the delay, try another Wii Remote with your system.
If a different Wii Remote works, the original Wii Remote will need to be replaced. Please click here for repair options.
If the problem continues with another Wii Remote, then problem is most likely with the Wii console and it will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair options.
