Black Screen with Homebrew Channel
I've had HBC installed for about 6 weeks now, and USB Loader GX installed for 4 and the entire time I've had hectic black screen issues. It seems about 2/3 of the time when I run USB Loader GX from HBC or through a forwarder I get black screened. Other applications (cIOS downgrader 1.2; cIOS38 rev14; and more) also give me black screen when I run them through HBC. I've tried a lot of different things to avoid it, but because the issue persists, I am wondering:
What is black screen caused by?
Why does it occur in so many different places (running different .dol files)?
How do I fix it?
Im not necessarily looking for a specific solution to my problem here (although that would be spectacularly pleasing) I am really just after education into what black screen really is and then hopefully I can solve my own problems and help others solve theirs.
Issue with the Hard drive??
Another thing I've noticed is that the very first time I run USB Loader GX after having the system (wii and hdd) off for a substancial ammount of time (perhaps an hour, I havnt tested thoroughly) I don't get black screen. It runs perfectly on the first run. Its only when switching off and back on (to play a different game etc.) that I encounter black screen.
I remember reading in the changelog that an old revision of USBL (cant remember which) had a fix for your hdd falling asleep when u reset the wii. Since I've run 785, 792, 807 and whatever the latest is (I updated a couple days ago) all the version I use should have the same fix, yes?
But I am inclined to belive that, since it always works first time out, it may have something to do with the drive falling asleep (or something...?). My drive is a WD Green Power 1TB. I have it partitioned in two 500GB volumes both formatted WBFS (although USBL only seems to be able to see one 500GB partition)
