Info for PAL-regions!
Posting here because I have FINALLY got my Australian Wii to run Netflix in Australia, without using SNEEK. The thing that was stopping everything from working in the end turned out to be a really simple but for some reason, the last thing I checked, and I don't think it's been posted explicitly, so here goes...
The Netflix Channel will only work when your Wii is set to NTSC output
Duhhh, you may say... But I went through a LOT of steps to try and make this work before I figured this out.
For reference, my Wii was originally 4.3E (red Wii). Here is my current setup, with Netflix working:
4.1U System Menu, USA Region
ALL IOS updates, incl. IOS 61 & Shop Channel v20 (latest US version)
Country Code 49 (USA) for Shop Channel
Latest Netflix Channel downloaded via the Shop
Prriloader settings - Region Free for Discs & Channels (to use my PAL discs)
I think it might be possible to get this working on a 4.1E Region Free Wii IF all other settings are as above (i.e. just change country region to 49 for US Shop Channel to download Netflix), HOWEVER I have not tested that - I only know that DIDN'T work with PAL output. If anyone has the time/energy maybe they can confirm!
Of course SNEEK is still a good solution if you don't want to mess with your main region settings etc, and Netflix WILL NOT WORK without a genuine Netflix account and US IP address.
Have fun everyone!!
I am unable to download the wii netflix update from the wii, just as I could never download the original netflix channel from shop channel. When I download I keep getting "transaction Failure" with Error Code: 204036. I did update the wii shop channel using kranks guide successfully. Strangely I can download other items from shopp channel, so that isn't the issue, but why the heck do I keep getting this frustrating error for netflix? In order to install original netflix channel I installed it as a wad found elsewhere, but as of yet have'nt had any luck doing the same for the update. I know the updated version is slow according to many, but I really want the "just for kids" section that comes with it, my kid loves using netflix!!
Delete your netflix save, then use Any Title Deleter to remove any traces of the old netflix channel. The netflix title ID is HCLE.
I did as you said and deleted the netflix save, but when I ran any title deleter there is no HCLE Id anywhere. I checked in all options although I assumed it should be under installed channel titles. ): Thanx all the same cjizzle, any more idea's anyone??
There is no HCL*? Ok, then try downloading netflix to your sd card. After that copy it over to your wii using data management.
Sent using the WiiHacks app. Please excuse the brevity, punctation, and spelling.
I forgot to mention that I had already tried downloading to both the system memory and the sd card, but I get the same error with both. I even tried using a new (blank) Sd card but no luck!!
Dang, Darn it!! I thought I had came up with a great idea. I copied the updated netflix channel from my friends wii, using data management, to a blank sd card. I then went to install it on my wii, only to get: "The Channel cannot be copied to this wii console" message!!!! :mad: I just donot understand why the heck my wii will not accept this update, very frustrating!!! Unless a wad comes out for this updated netflix I guess I'm forever stuck with the old version. :(
Do you happen to still have the wad you used to install it in the first place?
Yes I still have original wad, I used it to reinstall old version for time being again today.
Extract and install THIS with your wad manager and try to download the update again.
