Just a quick tought.
You don't need to pair the wiimote "the usual way" and if you want to
you need to press the button under the batteries and not (1)+(2). This
last one is for "quick" pair that does not looses the pairing with the wii
Use something like "wminput" and press (1)+(2) and it should work.
