Support Remote Buddy FAQ Hardware - Wii Remote

I can't pair my Wii Remote using the Remote Buddy setup wizard. Are there alternative methods to pair my remote?

In some cases, the Bluetooth-stack of OS X does not deliver the names of devices to Remote Buddy, making it impossible for Remote Buddy to detect a new remote control. If you experience this case, you can use the OS X Bluetooth Wizard in order to work around this problem upon your first connection. Therefore, please follow these instructions:

  1. Open "System Preferences"
  2. Select "Bluetooth"
  3. Click on "Set Up New DeviceĀ…". The Bluetooth assistant will now open.
  4. Click on "Continue" to get beyond the "Introduction" message.
  5. Select "Any device" and click "Continue".
  6. Now press button 1 and 2 simultaneously on your remote control
  7. If the name of your remote control appears on screen, select it from the list and click on "Continue"
  8. Continue to click on "Continue" until you are prompted to enter a number on your Bluetooth device. If you have reached that screen, quit the assistant.
  9. Now use Remote Buddy's own "Setup Wizard" to pair your remote with your computer.
