    Hey guys my first post!

    I am having issues getting more then 1 controller to work for SNESx emulator or Homebrew channel for the matter. I don't know if there's an additional step I need to do or a file I need to install - but here's my problem.

    When I connect to the Homebrew channel both my controllers turn off. I have to turn them on again when I am in the Homebrew channel but only my first controller connects - my 2nd controller will not. The 2nd controller won't work or even detect in any apps within the Homebrew channel - just sits there scanning and eventually stops. Any suggestions? I really need this working tonight because I planned on playing some NHL94 with my buddy tonight. All help is appreciated thank

    You only need 1 Wiimote for the Homebrew Channel.

    For the SNES Emulator, it depends which version your using.

    The best version released officially is Snes9x GX 004:

    Yeah it still doesn't work - at what point is it supposed to detect my controller? I seem to have the same problem with GenPlus - I can't get anything to detect my other controller once using a homebrew app. I've switched my controllers in the Wii controller setup and when I go into Homebrew it still sets my first controller back to the first port LOL. Really frustrating since I need to get this up and running for tonight; my buddy is an advid NHL 94 fan like myself [​IMG]

    No I've tried using just the Wiimote and also using the classic controller. Really weird issue - I'm starting to think there's something wrong with my other remote though it works fine on regular Wii games.

    Your Wiimotes are hard synced to the Wii right?

    Not synced via the Wii Home Button Menu right?

    You are my new best friend!!! I worked on this all day and after some more testing I found that even if I setup my 2nd controller as #1 and my first controller as #2; controller 1 would go back to being setup as controller 2. So I took the batteries out of my first controller and had my 2nd controller set as #1 and it would just turn off in Homebrew. Further testing showed that GenPlus wouldn't even detect Wiimote2. So I decided to come back on and found your reply and researched "hard sync"... after about 10 minutes of trying to sync them up I did it. Both controllers stayed on in Homebrew and both now work in my emulators.

    So I wanted to thank you so much for pointing this unknown fact to me - I didn't know bluetooth was so picky!! You are the man - and thanks to everyone else that contributed!!
