    NOTE: do not post if you want to say the following

    1) learn to be patient
    2) take ur DVD out when loading the homebrew channel
    3) delete the homebrew channel
    4) z0mg m4n 1t5 n0t 4 b1g d34l

    im looking for a solution whereby i have a dvd inside my wii, i load the homebrew channel and my wii doesnt try reading the dvd right after i click start on the homebrew channel.


    ok this problem came to me sometime between when i first upgraded to 3.3v2 to when i downgraded to 3.2. its really annoying, heresthe problem i have

    problem: turn on wii, dvd drive is spinning (so far so normal) i click on homebrew channel, i click start, right after that, screen goes black and disc stops reading immediately (still normal), the screen stays black and the dvd drive tries reading dvd again, stops trying to read dvd wait 10 seconds then homebrew channel finally comes up.

    this migth seem like nothing but imagine u had to do this each and every single time you wanted to play a game and while its spinnin ur thinkin "OH FOR **** SAKE WATS THE ****IN POINT OF SPINNIN AGAIN FFS!!!"

    also ive noticed its not jsut the homebrew channel, its with the ocarina wad as well and the wiishop channel except for the wii shop channel, its stops reading the disk wen i press start within 2 seconds it starts reading again and after about 5 seconds the channel appears and the disk continues spinning


    anyone got any solutions

    thx in advance

    So the problem is that when you click homebrew channel... after a few seconds the homebrew channel opens?

    Solution: Delete homebrew channel

    ermm the reason i wanna sort this out is because i wanna use the homebrew channel without waiting ages each time i wanna load it up, i dont think removing the whole thing will help...

    oh and if that was a joke: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA no...

    try loading without a disc in the wii if the extra wait is too much... no disc to spin, no delay while it spins.

    well more than 90% of the time i go on the homebrew channel i go on it for gecko os so yh if i do that it drives me nuts even more coz it means i have to get up eject, take a step bak so wiimotes easier to control, load HBC, then finally put it bak in

    yes well if you want to get rid of that delay these are your only options. So either stop being lazy, deal with the wait, or install a wad that directly goes to the geckOS. After all that is too much, uninstall everything and follow one of the guides to the letter. these are you options. pick one.

    ive got the ocarina wad, got the same problem, i doubt getting the gecko os wad will solve it, besides ive tried installing the gecko os wad twice (2 different wads) one says this channel cant be used right after i load it, other one freezes at the gecko os menu.

    not useless. those really are your only options unless you feel like re-writting the homebrew channel.
    Especially since you don't want to be told to uninstall and re-install anything seeing as that is were yuour problem originated and can be fixed.
    And after that response im fairly certain no one else is going to offer you any advise or help
    Like i said above Uninstall EVERYTHING and start over from scratch and follow the steps on of the guide for your system menu version to the letter.

    yh that was kinda rude sry.

    but ive noticed its not a problem jsut with the homebrew channel, its with ALL channels including except if the channel doesnt work (like the 2 gecko os wads i had) the only different one is the wii shop channel, when it reads the dvd the second time, it just shows the channel rather than stopping the reading then showing the channel, its either to do with the 3.3v2 update or the cIOS/IOSes i installed when downgrading to 3.2E ( i think, i may be talking bullocks here)

    you went to the link provided and still can't get it to work? Did you follow all the directions or are you skipping over steps?

    ive done all those steps already i jsut checked, its jsut that theres this really strange problem which no one seems to have apart from me and my friend, and he was on 3.3v2 when he started homebrew, he downgraded to 3.3v1. and he used that guide as well.
