New Wii remote turns off
Hello, Need help facing a new challenge with "new" Wii remote turning off when WiiFlow, HomeBrew or any "added" channel loads. I have softmoded a bunch of Wii using the softmod any Wii tutorial with no problem. A few days a go I got a new black "sideways" Wii and the remote turns off when I select WiiFlow. Using and old remote, it works as expected to load WiiFlow, choose and start a game. Once the game loads the other remote comes on and works fine. I have searched and read and checked but can not find the root cause. Short of buying another "old" remote, does anyone have any thoughts on why this would happen? Donation to Wiihacks for the solution.
You can temporarily pair a wiimote or permanently pair one. Sounds like the new wiimote may only be temp.
use the red button next to the SD slot and the red button in the wiimote battery compartment to pair it to the wii.
If your already aware or this and have paired it that way then I'm not sure what the problem is
Thanks DeVoid but I tried that. Strange thing is the new black remote controls Nintendo installed channels but not HomeBrew or WiiFlow. It shuts off once they load. I even tried it on my softmoded Wii that works fine but shuts off during WiiFlow launch, and stays off. If I load WiiFlow with another "old remote" and start a game the "new black" on comes on again. Strange? Has anyone seen this before on a new model Wii?
