I have a modded Wii and a Wii U. As a Youtuber I have been able to successfully record footage from the Wii, but this requires an overcomplicated method. For this reason, I am starting to think about transferring to the Wii U to make things a lot easier, but I'm not sure what will happen to The Homebrew Channel and others. Will it transfer everything fine? Will it transfer everything but the Homebrew? Or will it simply not work? Also, if possible, is there a way to transfer to the Wii U but still keep everything on the original Wii?

The official transfer program will transfer any paid WiiWare and Virtual Console games (server side check). It will not transfer:
* Homebrew Channel
* Forwarder Channels for USB loaders or similar
* Illegitimate copies of WiiWare and Virtual Console games or injected Virtual Console games

In my case the program ran normally, did not care for Homebrew Channel (did not delete it on the source Wii) and everything was good.

Comment #1: If you restore the NAND of the source Wii to get your things back, visiting the (defunct) Wii Shop Channel will delete the titles as they are not longer associated with the Wii.
Comment #2: If you have a license for the same game on both devices, you will lose one license. Saves on the Wii U may be...

One question though: Doesn't some kind of Wii2hdmi adapter have the same result as using HDMI on a Wii U?

If you want to hack your Wii U and/or the Wii mode of the Wii U ("vWii") make sure to fully read the guide(s) and pay attention to the warnings.
