PGP keeps dropping wiimote connection.
Hi there. I'm having a strange problem with my wiimote where even though it stays connected through my bluetooth, PGP seems to lose it for some reason and the profile suddenly stops working. I'll then have to exit out of my game and restart PGP for it to see my wiimote controller again.
At first I thought it could just be something where the batteries need changed, but I've tried two different sets of fresh batteries.
Now for the really weird part - I've tried using this controller in my game with a Wii gamepad attached to it (where the nunchuk normally goes). I seem to be able to use the gamepad while connected to the wiimote just fine. But if I use the wiimote by itself in a wheel-type peripheral, it seems like the constant left and right turns is what messes this up. It will work fine for a few minutes, but after constantly steering left and right with the wiimote the light showing it's "Wiimote 1" goes out on the device and PGP no longer shows it to be a connected controller.
Any ideas what is wrong? I just updated PGP to the latest version but still have the same problems.
EDIT: Well, now I can't keep a connection using the Wii gamepad controller either, so there goes that theory. Looks like PGP simply does not want to keep my wiimote profile active regardless of which controller I'm using. But, again, it always seems to be when I'm inputting commands. The connection is fine as long as I don't use a controller!

One more thing I noticed this morning - I had PGP open to edit the wiimote profile and while I was pressing buttons on the wiimote, PGP lost the connection. Again, everything is still fine according to my bluetooth. I restarted PGP and the single blue light came back on for my wiimote. So it seems this issue has nothing to do with me playing a game when this happens.
I've managed to use PGP with my wiimote for a full day today with no issues. I'm not sure what was causing the problem yesterday and why it's not happening today. As far as I know, nothing has changed - PGP just never loses the connection. I'm leaning towards something other than the wiimote was interfering, but can't figure out what it can be.
Also, I did download another update to PGP again last night, so not sure if that made a difference.
