I was going to go play some smash bros after installing my custom theme (which was successful btw). I noticed that my Wii Remote was not connected. I kept pressing 1, and 2 at the same time, nothing happened. I tried syncing the Wii Remote, and it did nothing either. What's Happening?

  • I keep forgetting which to press first, the red button on the Wii, or the red button on the Wiimote; in any case: try both. Is the Wiimote synced with another system? It could be the reason.

    I tried pressing both, and tried pressing SYNC on the wii first, and even the other way around. It just flashes the blue lights then comes to a halt. I tried holding the SYNC button on the wii for 15 seconds to clear all wiimotes. Still didn't work. I only have 1 wii console. The wiimote used to work fine, but not anymore. I'm at a dead end here
    :(

    I have Homebrew installed, along with some other IOS's including Priiloader and BootMii. Do you think these can interfere with connection?
  • I don't think homebrew is the problem. Older versions of the homebrew channel do not recognize later Wii Remotes (Wii Remote Plus), but it does not affect the Wii menu.
    Maybe somebody else has had this problem.

    Make sure you are in the Wii Menu when you sync it.

    Alrightie. I will try and clear all wiimotes again, and do it in the home menu this time.
