I am wanting to do a simple Wii Power On/Power Off with LavVIEW via Bluetooth. I have seen several VIs in this forum that provide some pretty complex controls with Bluetooth but haven't seen anything that gives me info on how to power on/power off the Wii console.
Can anybody help me out with this?
I had previously downloaded the referenced VI and had looked through them. But I didn't find anything about power. Most of the VIs are way beyond that.
I just now looked completely through the thread you referenced but no luck.......
I just read the whole thread (out of interest) and noticed that the starting post states that the power button is not supported...
The Wiimote VIs currently can:
* Read and write LED status
* Read all buttons (except power button)
* Read calibrated accelaration data
* Read up to 4 IR sources
Well, BUMMER!!! I guess I missed that part.
Anybody have a clue why the power button isn't supported? (It is the only thing I need. LOL)
Going out on a limb (I know nothing about a Wii)- if the power was off how could it communicate back without any power available to do so????
It is like a TV remote control. The console always has power but is inactive. The remotes are battery powered.
I do not know anything about the communications protocol, however.
