Scenario: I have a G4 mini (with no Frontrow pre-installed) and I don't own a Wii (yet) Questions: If I purchase a Wii remote don't I need the motion sensor bar? I've read that installing Frontrow on your own requires an Apple remote? Or any bluetoot

Questions: If I purchase a Wii remote don't I need the motion sensor bar? I've read that installing Frontrow on your own requires an Apple remote? Or any bluetooth would do? So if I get the Wii remote working first then install Frontrow that would work fine?
Expert input appreciated.

If it is possible to add the position-sensing feature to your Mini, I should think that you must use the Wii sensor bar which, I think, means you would have to use the Wii itself. I don't know if any of that is possible. i can say that the control provided by the Wiimote buttons is very nice. BTW, I read a review of the Remote Buddy that suggested that users would be well off using a Mac mini/wii/Remote Buddy setup. Don't remember the reasoning, but it sounded good at the time! I believe I found the link on the RB company page. When and if you get things where you want them, please post back with details of your setup--I'm very interested in doing something similar.
