    hello everbody.

    i would like to hear some opinions:

    how good or bad are the chances, that there will be a more advanced modchip?

    something i'm badly waiting for:

    - mediaplayer with the ability of reading media over the network from samba/windows shares
    - possibilty of mounting a USB HD to the USB Ports of the wii in order to place and start my backups directly from there
    - region free

    these are the point that are really important for me. but if u think this will NEVER come, then there is no sense in waiting 4 something that will never happen. so what do u think? :unshure:

    waiting for a more advanced modchip or throw my hopes away and use the wiinja?

    greetings
    dakky

    You do not have to "throw away your hopes". Buy the Wiinja, and if something better comes along, remove the Wiinja. The things you are hoping for will probably take years to develop, especially to deal with firmware upgrades.

    It's still early. The console's only been out for so long and anything is possible. I'm sure a lot of things will be developed over time. You should wait anyway since it's so damn early, unless you're just really anxious to play backups. Regardless, anything you buy in any case will always have something better come out afterwards. You can never buy the "best" item.

    I think these things will definately come, but it will at least takes a few more months.

    I know that there are people really into adjusting the firmware. If the firmware can be modified you will be able to do the things you name. The only disadvantages could be that updating wouldn't be possible and you will lose some other functions with that.

    I strongly agree with this. There is no reason that the Wiinja or other similar 1st Gen modchip could not just be removed and replaced with a newer type. That's what I'm planning to do.
