This is a long shot but would be very grateful. I have used my Sammy for a number of work presentations. I use PowerPoint with the plex add in which is very cool but means that most wireless mice don’t work very well with it. Upshot is you have a more flash presentation but have to sit next to the keyboard, not nearly so nice.
Now some clever bods have configured the wii remote to do just this job. However, I can’t get the remote to pair with Sammy. Sammy sees it as a bluetooth but doesn’t want to pair. The geeks say if you are asked to enter a pin number just go to the next step. However, when I do this, the pairing fails.
Any advice from you clever computer people?

all explained here
To actually get the WiiMote working as a media remote you need an additional bit of software – either WiinRemote, GlovePie or Bluetunes. I personally use Bluetunes as it let’s me easily use the WiiMote as a mouse on it’s own as well as controlling my music.
I had a few problems connecting the WiiMote first time I tried, but it does work.
Hold 1+2 on the WiiMote and at the same time search for a new Bluetooth Device on the Sammy.
Keep holding 1+2, select the Nintendo device that pops up.
Next screen is the passcode screen. While still holding 1+2, click skip.
Next screen configures the services for the device. Still hold 1+2, and tick the box that says about Mouse/Presentation mode.
Release 1+2, click finish.
Bluetooth Neighbourhood will open on the Sammy – goto Browse nearby devices and you should see the WiiMote there with a double ended arrow on it – if so then it is connected.
Install Bluetunes and run the application.
If all is well, the WiiMote will vibrate briefly – if not Bluetunes will display an error message about the WiiMote not being found.
Downside is you need to repair the WiiMote each time you need to use it after rebooting.January 26, 2009 at 5:21 pm #181376

Here is a quick piccy tutorial on how to connect the WiiMote to your Bluetooth Enabled PC – soz about quality but it was literally just thrown together…January 27, 2009 at 5:36 pm #181380
This is what I was trying to do, but when I press ‘skip’ nothing happens until the process times out. Will try again tomorrow….January 27, 2009 at 5:40 pm #181384
keep holding 1+2 right the way through until you click Finish.
