    Hey guys I'm in a bit of an ummm pinch. My Wii remote won't respond to my homebrew channel all of a sudden and I think I know why. The display on my television says that the homebrew channel is NTSC and my Wii remote is pal so it won't connect to the homebrew channel or any of it's contents. So I was wondering if there was anyway that I could do to stop the homebrew channel from being NTSC. I'd really appreciate it if anyone could help me on this. thanks Diezal

    have you tried the re-syncing the wiimote as wiimotes are region free doesn't matter what console you have PAL or NTSC it should work

    I can only sync remotes @ the official Wii Menu. I navigate preloader to the wii menu using a GC controller, then sync remotes @ the wii menu

    Could you tell us how you bricked your Wii?

    edit: Well i'll give aquick guess going off of your recent post sense i'm logging off
    to me it sounds like you've removed your setting.txt

    try running http://wiibrew.org/wiki/System_Setting_Replace_Mod and re-install you're setting.txt after installing it if your wii still isn't fixed try then re-installing your system menu IOS and the system menu
    starting with its IOS, remember if your only using preloader and not bootmii then re-installing your system menu will remove preloader and could leave you completely bricked if this doesn't fix it

    Thanks a lot for that the app blackace but the thing is... On top of everything else my wii remote won't sync up with the homebrew channel for some reason, which means that I can't install cios 249 unless I find an installer that works with the gc controller. do you have any ideas on where I could find one or can recommend me to anyone that is capable of developing one please. Thanks

    IOS249 has absolutely nothing to do with The Homebrew Channel.

    The Homebrew Channel is compatible with gamecube controllers.

    What IOS are you choosing for the installer?

    1st off.

    wiimotes are not region specific. I personally use a japanese one with mine.

    2nd.

    Gamecube controllers do work with the Homebrew channel. I suggest you use one of those.

    I have the same problem as shaq. I was running 4.1U and tried to install cIOS53-trucha.wad via Wadmanager 1.5. I haven't used my wii for months, and couldn't remember if this was the right way to update the system so I could play New Super Mario Bros.

    I have a D2CKey, and boot2 installed, and backups of my NAND when it was 3.2U and 4.1U.

    Unfortunately I cannot boot to the Wii System menu, but can access bootmii restorer v0.6 via the SDCard. I can access HBC 1.03, however my wiimotes (all four of them) will not sync, so I cannot re-load wadmanager to try to uninstall the IOS53-trucha.wad file.

    I restored successfully to both 4.1U and 3.2U, but still cannot access my system menu, and cannot get my wiimote to link to HBC. My HBC does connect to the internet and tries to download 1.0.6, but I can't click "ok" as my wiimote won't work.

    So far my Wii is bricked, despite being able to load my NAND backups. Any tips?

    I'm thinking of buying a classic controller and seeing if I can control HBC, but unsure if uninstalling that updated cIOS53-trucha.wad will repair my system menu. I though the NAND backup would restore any damage that I had done, but not so [​IMG]

    Sounds like a bluetooth problem but try putting a couple of lit candles around and in front of your tv just make sure its not the sensor bar (candles detect infared light and make the wiimotes work without sensor bar conected)

    Not sure how serious you are - fortunately I don't have any candles, otherwise I'd probably give that a go. Unless I can somehow navigate the menus in HBC so that I can get back into wadmanager to uninstall the cios53 (or install an alternate IOS), then I'm stuck being bricked.

    May have to find a mate with a gamecube controller, or buy one to see if I can recover. Lucky I have bootmii installed in boot2, or else I'd be totally bricked.
