    So, I've searched all around the internet to see if there is a banner for the original channels (you know, News Channel, Mii Channel...) because I'm making my own channel. To be specific, I'm looking for the Disc Channel GameCube Disk Inserted Banner. Help...

    Mii Channel can be extracted from your wii with Waninkoko's WAD Creator ( http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=149075 )

    Slightly more hassle, but more reliable is to create a BootMii back up and extract the WAD with ShowMiiWads ( http://wiibrew.org/wiki/ShowMiiWads )

    News Channel and Weather Channel are slightly trickier as they have CHANS code which allows the content to be changed dynamically.

    Disc Channel is not true channel (i.e. there is no WAD), it's part of the system menu. You can rip elements of it and create a wad channel from them, but it'll take some patience. Including Benzin editing, which you'll have to compile ( http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Benzin ).

    The TPLs (images), Brlyt (Layouts), Brlans (Animations) are stashed in Diskbann.ash and DiskThumb.ash which are lurking in the system menu (see a theme making guide for where, e.g. http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=260...;#entry3204672)

    Breakdowns of images are here: http://fathertom.net/hardwii/?p=375

    You guys know it's illigal to use official channels as a base?
    Better use customizemii for base wads.
