Hey everyone! Throughout the BitBuilt forums, I've heard rumors here and there about building a Noldendo Wii Micro that is able to run off of 5v, despite both the pre-amp and the sensor bar requiring 12v to properly function. I understand how to bypass the need for the sensor bar's 5v requirement (using either a USB sensor bar or removing some of the IR LED's on the original) but how the heck would you get the pre-amp to work with only 5v? Would you need to use a different video out option on your Wii Micro that's not the original port (for reference, I've ordered an analog2HDMI that I plan to use)? Do you have to perform some wacky surgery using the RVL-Amp from 4 Layer Tech as your audio coder instead? After scavenging all throughout BitBuilt, I have been unable to find any previous post documenting this. If anyone has any information at all to contribute it would be greatly appreciated !
