    You should not need to do either. Use priiloader to block online and disc updates (link in signature). You can now use a channel for free instead of the netflix disc. It can be downloaded via NUSD.
    Give credit where credit is due. If it helps you, click "thanks" on ANY guide I link.

    I assume 3.6u is a type-o, but I am not sure about it. It might be possible you need 4.1 or above. There are ways to update the system menu to 4.1 without losing softmods. If you are careful, you can search around for these methods.

    When you install the netflix disc to the USB HDD you will not see an update, the usb loader blocks updates. If you use the disc in the disc channel then you will see an update if you do not set priiloader to block updates. System menu version is not an issue when playing from a USB Loader. I believe that Neogamma disc loader will block updates too, so try playing the disc thru Neogamma and see what happens, or you can even play the disc thru a usb loader like GX or CFG.

    Can the same be said for the new channel? That's why I gave it the benefit of the doubt.

    Oh, I was unaware that the netflix disc installed a channel. If that's the case then priiloader should be used to block updates.

    I wouldn't get rid of softmods just for Netflix. There must be a netflix guide somewhere at WiiHacks.

    Sorry, Nintendo released a channel for free from the wii shop channel that you can get from NUSD about a month or so ago. I have never heard of a channel needing a specific SM, but to OP, reinstall priiloader, block online updates, get the channel from NUSD, install the .wad, and see if it works. I agree with stomp tho, it's not worth ditching the softmods for netflix.

    I checked with NUSD and cannot find a Netflix channel, maybe it's only avaliable thru the shop channel.

    Nor can I. I really thought you could. Either way, I hope there was something here for the OP to use that was helpful! >.<
