I have sync'd up my Wii remotes to the Wii U, but the pointer will not appear on screen. The bottons on the Wii remote work; I just am not getting any type of pointer on screen. No little hand or pointer like you would get on the original Wii. I went in the Wii menu to play try a Wii game and am getting no pointer.
I have the original Wii remotes, no jacket, no motion plus, etc.
