    So I'm new to this whole Wii homebrew world and am just getting all my hardware lined up. Picked up a used black Wii off of Craigslist the other day. I plan to only play Wii games off a USB HDD and I already have 2 OEM Wii Remotes + and nunchucks. I want to purchase 2 more generic Wiimotes w/nunchucks and 4 generic classic pro controllers but have heard that these don't work that well in the Homebrew Channel.
    Is this still accurate? Do the controllers not work only in the channel or also during game play? If so, what's the best workaround, other than buying original OEM controllers?

    Thanks

    Hi! I use original wiimote with chinese non-original controller pro, it works fine. I can use it in main menu (using analog stick), in homebrew channel using dpad. One issue or bug - that cursor sometimes "fly away" up the screen. But when I aim wiimote at tv screen it works well again.

    Thanks for the feedback man! I have since gotten 4 OEM Wiimotes. So I'll go ahead and give these generic CCPs a try.
