    Unable to Update Homebrew Channel from 1.1.0

    Hi there

    I am unable to update my Homebrew Channel... I am currently using version 1.1.0, and I understand that the most recent version is 1.1.2

    I spent quite some time trying to google this answer, but most answers said either that HBC is self-updating, or that I simply had to click on an icon within HBC in the bottom right corner.

    The bottom right corner of HBC has two icons... One is a dark-shaded lizard, and the other is a white-shaded wifi symbol... neither can be clicked.

    How do I update from 1.1.0 to 1.1.2? Is such an update even necessary?

    Specifically, my reason for wanting to update HBC is for two reasons:

    1) I am unable to play DVDs on my wii, either through MPlayer or WiiMC, and

    2) I use 3rd party classic controllers, and when using emulated copies of games I legally own, the result is either a) no/limited response, b) the wii crashes, or c) extremely laggy

    I know there are several topics within this post, but many sites I read seemed to suggest that both of these would be addressed if I updated HBC.

    Any help would be very appreciated!

    Thanks

    There is no reason to do this. 1.1.1+ only provides WiiU compatibility, nothing for the normal Wii. It actually can cause some issues on the normal Wii due to the title ID change. As for your issues, I would guess that (1) your disk drive is incapable of playing DVDs and (2) emulators function like that sometimes. I doubt the controllers or the HBC are affecting it

    It isn't recommended to go from 1.1.0 to 1.1.2.

    1.1.0 is the final version for the Wii, which is why the auto-update won't go further than that. 1.1.2 is meant for "Virtual Wii" or "Wii Mode" in the Wii U.

    While a 1.1.2 installer will install1.1.2 on the Wii, it is meant for Wii U use.

    We recommend you sticking with 1.1.0 on Wii systems. 1.1.2 doesn't add any new functionality over 1.1.0 for the Wii.

    For your other questions: 1) HBC version has nothing to do with what the other apps are capable of. That is limited by the cIOS files and the hardware itself. If you have an older Wii, you can watch DVDs through WiiMC, but newer Wiis cannot due to hardware changes in the system preventing those disks to be read.

    2) I personally don't recommend 3rd party controllers at all. If they work any different over a 1st party controller in the slightest and the application isn't expecting it, yes: it can cause what you are seeing.

    If you want to know if your system is "current enough", feel free to run a syscheck (directions on how to do so and post it are in my signature). And if you think you have to remod it to get it current, the Softmod Any Wii guide is also in my signature.

    Hope this helps.

    Didn't know that. I guess it makes sense that it could cause limited response to the button imput, but would it really cause the Wii to crash/the game to be laggy? Never heard of that before, but I don't read much about emulators.

    It depends on how sloppy the app code is. I remmeber when I first started playing with homebrew apps, I played this tetris homebrew app using classic controller. Everything worked well until I pressed the L or R button. Then the whole thing went belly up, since the app didn't know how to handle that input.

    Fully flushed out games will have all of the controller inputs taken care of, either by doing something with it, or ignoring the input. But some homebrew apps can be sloppy when it comes to some of that stuff.

    well... that makes sense... i'll leave it at 1.1.0... thanks!

    llaffer: thanks for the info.

    1) so i followed the syscheck guide, and it seemed to run perfectly... except i was unable to generate a report back on to the SD card... i tried three times, but no .CSV files seem to be located on the SD card... it also said i could upload the results to the web, and it then generated a URL... but when i tried going to it, i got a 404 not found error... anyway, the drive date is listed at 2012 12 08... not sure if that tells you anything... it probably is a newer model, and thus can't read DVDs... too bad.

    i saw a lot of youtube tutorials that seemed to show it was possible, but i guess they were all using an older wii... the wii that i have, i bought new about 2 years ago... how would i know if it was indeed a newer model? simply by the fact that it does not work with WiiMC?

    2) i looked around for ways to get the emulators to work with the 3rd party CCs, and found this site:

    Removed Out Side Link.
    but it's all too advanced for me at this point... in your guys' opinion, is it possible to use emulators (snes, genesis and n64) with the 3rd party CCs? or does that question entirely depend on game/emulator? i guess my question is, are the CCs i got totally useless, and should I just get nintendo CCs? the 64 rom that im using allows me to play using the wiimote (without the nunchuck), but the CC that im using doesnt seem to do anything... it seems to work better on SNES roms.

    or are there other emulators, accessible outside of homebrew, that may work better with the 3rd party CCs?

    thanks so much for your quick replies, guys.
