Well I went ahead and performed the update.
Nothing seem to be broken so far, but then again I have a wiikey installed.
This disc rocks !
Very nice and sleek menu, nice icons, ability to browse instant playing movie or TV, add to your queue, play, rewind....forward....categories,favorites...you name it !
Very well done, the streaming takes just a few seconds to start and I didn't notice any difference in quality compared to my PC hooked up to the TV via HDMI.
When you insert the disc for the first time it connects itself to netflix and gives you a code.
Next you log in with your computer on netflix.com/Wii , insert the code and you are all set ! Ready to go.
I'm super happy, I'm enjoying it so far !
Just curious. the DVD Drive part of my wii is broke. It wont read any disc I put inside of it at all (My Wii Failed the 3 year old son test). currently I am on sm 4.2 and softmodded and using cfg usbloader and usbloader gx and everything else is working just fine.
My question is so I need to disc to get a code? I downloaded a "Netflix - USB Loader GX - Forwarder.wad" that I was gona install.
Im guessing that I can install the channel wad to launch the netflix browser or what ever? How does the usb loader work into the whole thing?
Bottom line is I was hoping to check this netflix thing out on my wii but the dvd drive wont read ANY discs.
Can I still check out Netflix on the Wii with a broke dvd drive?
If your loading Wii games, Netflix ISO, from usb, your DVD drive is'nt even a factor.
Your ordering and watching streaming video from the internet directly to your Wii.
You DO need to DL a netflix ISO of the disc, thats all.....
