    First you either get a message from Nintendo, or manually search for an update, then you have to confirm you want the update.

    I keep seeing people say they've "accidentally" updated to the latest version. Seeing as how you have to physically point the Wiimote at the buttons, I can't see how this is possible!

    Urrrm, but even with Wiiconnect24 you still have to agree to the update. It's not like it sneakily does it while you're not looking.

    I'm just speculating here, but can't it be a difference between the US and EU? I've understood it from a whole lot of sources that some get their US Wiis autoupdated over WiiConnect24 whereas this probably would be illegal here in the EU.

    Any American with auto update experience, speak up please.

    No, its the same cannot be automaticly updated, and if was different for American users, why wouldn't they take off their wiiconnect24 when they know updates are available once every 3 months. etc. and the possible affects of it*

    every wii is prompted if we want to install a update and does not matter if WiiConnect24 is on or not.

    Sorry if this sounds n00bish

    But I am going to be sending my Wii to Ninty due to the fact Brawl is not reading again.

    Will they update my machine, or will it be my choice?

    I couldn't tell you about that, it should be your choice though, not too sure.

    Yeh i realise that, since you paid for the machine, you should complain if its any different to when you left it,
    as in the wii system menu version

    I have Wiiconnect24 running on my Wii and I'm in the US. When there is a new update it comes in the form of a message with a link to click on to update. If you don't click on the link it won't update. Even if you click on the link it tells you that it might remove any altered save files if you update.

    Does it ask before it does the update if you play a game that requires a system version greater than the one you have on your Wii? I thought I still had to click OK but I can't remember 100%.

    Easy, you just don't realise that there's a new update out. But, I hear you cry, the fact that it's telling you there's an update means it's new! And yes, you'd be right. Imagine this situation though: You have a fully updated 3.3 Wii (pre-23rd) which gets sent back for repair, returning as a replaced 2.2 machine on the 23rd. Up until the evening of Wednesday 22nd you've been scanning the 'net and there's never any hint of an update, then you're out all day Thursday with no 'net access. Upon returning home, you switch on, go to redownload all your missing purchases from the shop post-repair but you can't 'til you update - fair enough, it's only 2.2 and you know that 3.3 (pre-23rd) is out and fully working with HBC, so you update. And then, your heart breaks when you find out you can't install HBC beta 8 because it's an updated 3.3 that got installed.

    Guess what happened to me [​IMG] Still, it's pretty unlikely that's been the case in all these "accidents" and I did still have the opportunity to check it out on the 'net before I did it, so there's no excuse even if it is monumentally bad luck.
