Okay, here's the situation. I need to run a wii sensor bar to a location through a wall, only I can't put the cable through the wall anymore, as the walls are finished and a 20 dollar item isn't grounds for a several thousand dollar wall adjustment. So, my options are pretty limited...power the sensor bar through a local outlet, or a wireless option. My question is regarding powering it through local means. Is there a wii sensor bar or third party variation that can be plugged into an outlet, and if not, does anyone have a page or an idea of where I can go to find specifications for modifying it to use an ac adapter? Before anyone suggests candles or flashlights or anything, not an option, the bar is the most asthetically pleasing and has to be used.

I looked around already for simple voltage specs, and only found info from people who either couldn't speak english or typed horribly, but what I managed to gather was the bar is 7.5-12 volts, though third party bars are 5-6 volts. Also didn't get if that was ac or dc, which was problematic. If anyone could even tell me that, I'd be essentially set in stone. Thanks in advance.

I read the post, though I think a wireless sensor bar is maybe? the only choice, like this one http://www.vgblogger.com/accessory-review-memorex-wii-wireless-sensor-bar-and-quad-controller-charging-kit/7652/

I searched for the same thing a while back AgentD and found nothing

Wireless really has to be last ditch, though I appreciate the reply darklight. I have absolutely no problem destroying the sensor bar cable in an attempt to make this work. Hell, I have several cat 6 cables ran through the wall to the final location, I can use one of the 4 pairs and splice the xable onto it and attach the connector end and just run it into the wii, just rather not waste a network cable for just that.

Long story short, rich person, expensive house, specific asthetical preferences, and a very large equipment rack.
