    Can someone make a Disc Channel lookalike that has the ability to load and play wii, gamecube, and DVDs? Is there already something like this?
    I am trying to stay with the same look, but instead of 2 images in the channel (wii and gamecube discs), it would have 3 (wii, gamecube, and DVD discs)

    Its not possible to create a channel which changes the banner depending on the inserted disc, and Disc Channel only does this because it is not truly a channel, but a part of the System Menu.

    The closest you could get AFAIK would be patch the System Menu so that starting Disc Channel wouldn't actually boot the disc, but start an executable on SD card (i.e. a DOL or ELF file), which would then load the disc inserted in an appropriate manner. The problem with this approach would be I think if a DVD is inserted, the Start button on Disc Channel is greyed out, so it wouldn't be able to be started, and I believe it would just appear as an unrecognised disc. The former may be fixed by another patch perhaps, but the later could only be "fixed" by replacing the unrecognised disc image with a DVD image, e.g. via a MyMenu theme. However, this would mean that a truly unrecognised disc would show as a DVD, and also the Start button would be shown (regardless of graphic mod) with ALL discs too.

    Just some ideas...

    EDIT: BTW, this has been suggested quite a few times before to similar response [​IMG]

    I was just saying that it had been suggested before, and nothing was ever really done about it, so I don't think its very viable that anything will happen now.

    But there is still a chance of what I suggested happening, you just need to find someone with the skill and knowledge to do it, who actually has the motivation to do it as well.

    I wasnt referring to u, You were very helpful.

    TRushInfo has a habit of commenting on my posts. He feels I should already know everything about wii hacking. I dont because I am a n00b.

    then, in the future, use the word asshole, which is singular, not assholes, which is plural...not to mention sifjar is about as far from asshole as you are likely find hereabouts.

    i second this link though, as ddetkowski suggested.
