Damn graphical artifacts: Despite being aware of the problem for other people, I never noticed them until I compared SSBB on another Wii (well after my warranty was long-gone). To make things worse, this is the second Wii I've had to RMA (my launch-day unit stopped booting games and channels within 8hrs of unboxing). After waiting a month for my idiot brother to bring our Wii home from work and hanging on to a new Wii to swap drives with, the news hit yesterday that repaired Wiis were being returned with FW3.3. ARGH! Is it possible yet to back up your NAND and licenses/keys? I know that it would be console-specific and I might not get the same Wii back, but I will mark the board with UV reactive ink to tell for sure. I've spent an insane amount of money on VC games and even the Nintendo rep was blown away... after pulling up my MyNintendo account, he called his coworkers to look at the screen and spent two minutes going on and on about it! When push comes to shove, I'll take FW3.3 over firmware 3.2 with no VC games, but I sure don't want to lose my ability to boot Trucha-signed discs.
