    Exclamation NetFlix Channel with USBLoader GX 3.0

    I loaded Shop Channel v21 and downloaded the NetFlix channel yesterday. It loads from the system menu just fine.

    When I try to load the NetFlix from USBLoader GX 3.0 (actually the current SVN) it freezes. NetFlix Channel is installed to NAND, not emunand.

    Does anyone know how to get NetFlix launching from USBLoader GX?

    Here's a SysCheck if it helps:

    You need a cIOS with a base of 56 to run it from GX. You have d2x v10 37 base in 249 and no other d2x cios. I would recommend you install base 56 to 249, since 56 is the most compatible base ios.

    Thank you. I used the d2x 10beta52 installer with Base 56 and installed over the stub in slot 250.

    I set USBLoader GX to use IOS250 for NetFlix and it seems all is working well. Thanks for the tip.

    Is there any reason that the d2x installer defaults to base 37 in slot 249 or is it pretty much just because 37 is the first in the list?

    That...

    For best compatibility you should install all available bases. 245-37, 246-38, 247-53, 248-55, 249-56, 250-57, 251-58 is how we normally do it.

    How is d2x v10 working out for you? I have yet to try it, still on v9b49 myself....

    It's been great. No problems so far– I've only tested r52 since I don't have any games that require USB accessories.

    Im kinda curious how the alt versions of 10 work out. Im a big fan of NAND emulation so they wouldn't be right for me, but still curious nonetheless

    Yeah, the astounding success that various teams (great job guys!) have had getting the wii to do what they need and the maturity of many of the programs and mods makes me wonder why Nintendo hasn't built a Wii with a more efficient processor/graphics chip (even a smaller process), without a DVD drive and added games to their store wbfs style.

    Granted Nintendo still hasn't figured out that their store system is totally garbage– games that follow the Wii and not the user account? I bought several titles when WiiWare was new but they need to take a lesson from Steam if they want to compete.

    The particular Wii I'm working on is an RVL-101 that I reduced to 1.2cm tall except for the heatsink. It takes an SDXC card in the back (via soldered on USB reader). It will run fanless with convection but I'm going to try to build a low profile heatsink which will probably need the fan again. If I can get this far with a disc grinder and a soldering iron then Nintendo is slacking.

    It's not done yet, but just so you can have an idea of the size. Eventually it will have an aluminum case. The IR-bar port is free to move, it's just hot-glued on but it's already got extension wires. With a MicroSD the back will close flat.

    I think I'm going to keep a fan; I built a flat heat-sink so some holes in the case above that and a small fan somewhere else will push air out of the case.

    My mom came over today, she called it a "Wee Wii"

    Here's a few more shots for you. I picked this guy up with a broken DVD drive on ebay fo $20. I have to use my other wii to load my discs onto microSD. I have a 16GB chip in there now which barely fits all 8 of my disc games but I have tested up to a 64GB SDXC card.

    The hole & fan on top is the last little bit of clean up. I just need a different fan or maybe another chunk of aluminum to work with (that was my first go at a heat sink). The ports on the back could use some cleanup too, but that's not high priority.

    I may still make an aluminum case for it, especially if I can get passive cooling to be efficient enough and if I can get rid of the DVD drive board (layered under the main board- actually the little round silver bit on the bottom right of the white tape covering the DVD drive ribbon cable is a component from the DVD drive board poking through a hole in the main board to save space.)

    Anyway, now my kids can play and my discs stay safely upstairs in my room!
