DVDx isn't just for enabling DVD playback, it is also needed for any homebrew that is able to run stuff off of a DVD, such as the Homebrew Disc Loader, ftpii, emulators*, and the Backup Loader*. The Wii Homebrew Launcher also requires DVDx. *This statement does not condone or advise the use of any software for purposes of piracy or other illegal activites.

I read somewhere that the backup loader channel* bypasses the update procedure so i tried it and it worked *just want to note that im not using it to play backups, only to bypass the updater. I just decided that having taken ages to get dvdx working i didnt want to risk updating and losing it all.
The game didnt actually say i had to update to 3.4, just had to update..having typed that i just realised its obviously 3.4 as im on 3.3 now! Sorry, going back to work after christmas has made me a bit slow! Im not sure if the game is out in the US (Im in the UK), It was Sports Island
There is actually 2 versions of 3.3, the initial release, and then an updated/patched version that was released on Oct 23rd...it could have just wanted to put ver 2 of 3.3 on.

well my home theater comes with dvd/divx/mp4/mp3/wma/jpg/ogg... playing capabilities and more and more people are buying the divx/dvd players ... they are very cheap now... so trekster has a point y would you do that to your wii... and the answer is simple... Because you CAN!... lol...
"A man may fulfill the object of his existence by asking a question he cannot answer, and attempting a task he cannot achieve."
in all seriousness i really think its too make things "easier"
i for instance... only have 1 RWB connection to my tv *the wii doesnt need componet cables period!*
so i have my wii hooked up, and my Sega Nomad xD and Saturn *i play the saturn more than the wii -,_-,*
so my tv is missing
i would buy one of the PC connect cords but those are like 80 usd for my tv -.- so obviously this would be a better solution than buying the things needed to do what i want... but in my case i love my laptop and am on it 80% of the time im awake xD

and emulators don't necessarily need dvdx, only if you wan't to play roms using a dvd, which would be quite stupid considering you can use a sd card...well maybe it makes n64 roms playable but i don't know actually ^^
and as far as i know you can't simply downgrade a 3.4 system using anyregionchanger...i never tried but most people say it doesn't work.
you have to use waninkokos cIOS downgrader....i used this method and it definitely works ^^
