That works well, but then of course you have to deal with the awesomeness
that is trying to find the start button, and the go back button. And then of course not all games use the d pad for navigation. Ahem carnival games I'm
looking at you.
And you too deca sports.
I'll stick with my xBox.  Heh

moreaccessible

If any of you have played the Wii, you know that it's just about impossible to start, since on the startup screen there are seven buttons to push--four on top and three on the bottom, which makes for a confusing and frustrating day at the Wii console. Even though you know the one you want is in the top
left corner, you just can't seem to find it and instead find yourself
adjusting your daughter's mii... (which is the way she programmed her
character to look in the games.)  Incidentally, I gave hers quite the
hairdo.
With the screen in such a state, you might spend an hour starting the game
you want and have time for a match of tennis before dinner time--if you're
lucky.
Well, fear not Wii fans, because I have found a solution.  You'll need
sighted assistance for this but...
In addition to the page containing the start game icon, there are three or
more pages with additional channels.  There are two ways to get to those
pages--the plus and minus keys on the Wiimote, or the arrows on the screen.
What we are going to do is to drag each channel, (accept for the one we
want--the start game icon,) to another page.
Have your friend hold a and b together while pointing at a channel, then
move to the right arro and let go--and they have successfully moved the
channel.  You'll know it because you'll hear a chirp from the Wii and your
friend saying, "cool."
Have them do this for the next five channels, and you're done. You now have a startup screen with only one button--well, plus the arrows, but they won't
do anything accept change pages and you just hit the minus button to get
back to the first page--no harm done. So now all you do is move the Wiimote
around till it vibrates and you're there.  Make sure that your assistant
moves the channel you want--the start channel which, if they can't figure it out, will say "Wii sports," on it if that CD is in, to a place far away from
the arrows--the upper left corner perhaps. I can now start the game almost
every time I try it, although somehow another channel appeared on the first
page--but that's what happens when you let your children play with adults'
toys! LOL Well, if any of you have or are considering to purchase a Wii, I
hope this helps.
