I read somewhere on this forum that no. However, the post was dated May 09. I know my Wii has the latest hardware LU64, firmware 4.1. I know I can install homebrew, and if I'm a bit careful get all the things necessary to play backups installed through softmod. But, will it be able to read DVDRs at the end of it? I can't find anywhere saying that new solutions won't work.
