Wii Fit instructions for movements are all in reverse
The on screen instructions for the hula hoop game moves needed to catch the hoops are in reverse of the moves that are required. So too are the step game where you place your feet on the opposite sides of the board from the on-screen figures. When carrying out the muscle building exercises the screen message asks me to stand on my left foot, but does not recognise that I am actually doing that. It takes a few steps back and forward from foot to foot, ending on the opposite one that is asked for, before it permits me to start the exercise. This cannot be the way the Wii fit is meant to work, is it?

Re: Wii Fit instructions for movements are all in reverse
No it is not how Wii Fit is supposed to be. First, let me suggest that you ensure that the power button on the Wii Fit Balance Board is facing AWAY from the TV set. This may seem silly, but it's the most common error. As for the Hula Hoop game, make sure that your weight is all on the side of the Wii Fit Balance Board in the direction that you need to lean to catch the hoop.
There have been instances of the sensors in the Wii Fit Balance Board going out. If you have tried the above steps and you are still getting errors, please go to www.nintendo.com, register your product, and open a problem ticket with them.

Dark grey, actually, but you don't need the upgrade. Set the hoop size at the machine for the 150 x 240 hoop and the 150 x 150 hoop will work. Just be sure that the design starts in the centre i.e. don't move it up or down at the machine Embroidery screen. Before you begin sewing, check that the design will fit in the hoop without bumping the sides of the hoop. Use the Check Size button which is on the second screen of the Embroidery Screen (touch More on bottom right of first screen). The Check Size button is the one on the bottom right - the first button to the left of "More". Touch it once, hoop moves to top left of design; touch again hoop moves to bottom left of design; again hoop moves to bottom right; again hoop moves to top right.
Make yourself a note so that when you next take your D1 in for its regular service, get the hoop upgrade done at the same time. You need to have at least version 2.1 of the machine software installed - your tech. can do this for you too. It is a really minor adjustment so should not add much to the service cost. Be sure to take the embroidery unit in too when you go for the service.
The trick to hula-hooping is timing. If you get the hoop moving fast on its initial turn around your midriff you have a better chance of getting the timing- I like to use my legs to get the hula just right... And remember- the slower the body moves on the timing, the faster the hoop hulas.
If you're not shifting enough weight to one side, you can't catch a hoop. I have found that lifting the opposite foot off the board as soon as the toss is thrown helps quite a bit.
If you're still having trouble, evaluate how the board works with other activities on WiiFit. If you notice problems in other areas, you may have a defective unit. There is a calibration feature on the program, and if that doesn't work, try opening up a trouble ticket on www.nintendo.com.
I called Nintendo and they said there are sensor problems with some of the boards. We had to send ours back, free of charge (they even paid for shipping) and had a new one within 12 days. 1-800-255-3700 is the repair and troubleshoot #....
