The value tell the distance from WiiRemote to IR light source.
(you can same config on Wii console)
Preceisely I can say this value means a threshold of intensity of IR-LED.

So I recommend to use the latest Wiimotelib(v.1.7).
The init method is updated day by day. Now WiimoteLib can support 4 points LEDS instead of 2 points.
It can determine IRMode{Basic, Extend, Full, Off}

I'm not sure about "continuous" but I think it means "polling receiving" when we set as true.
For example, if you tap a button per 1 second, non-polling receiving may tell the
signal is on or off. but polling(continus) method tells "on-off-on-off" signals correctly.
