I changed my Wii's shop region to japan to download and pack the japanese only channels into region free WAD's.
Once set back to the UK everything works fine.....Except for the news channel, I always get a 117404 error.
But other 24connect-ed channels (like the weather and wii shop) work flawlessly.
I also softmodded the console in other ways, it's proberly not the cause of the problem but if it helps, here is my post on my backup problems:

Also as a side question;

Wii Shop Region Codes?
I found a full list of the wii shop region codes for use with anyregion changer, but i cant find it again!..?
All i can remember is 1=Japan, 110=UK and 49=USA
Theres about 200 codes.

Could anyone post the address of a website with the full wii shop region code list.

(I also posted the second question on yahoo answers, just so you know if you try google-ing for it, besides I wouldn't bother posting there anyways.)
(It's got about a day left to answer)

Ashesburn, you're a star!
I looked through WiiBrew but because I was using very specific key words for the search it came back with weird results.

Now if only I can solve my 2 other problems I'll have the perfect system...
Thanks again Ashesburn.

No problem. I know exactly what you mean. I was lucky to find this list of country codes while using Any Region Changer to switch from 3.2J to 3.2U.

I'm not sure why you are having problems with the news channel though. Mine worked properly even after switching over. I'm guessing it has something to do with channels in wrong region.

Not sure whether it'll help but have you tried installing Starfall? It has a free region channel feature.

I had starfall installed, but it didn't make any difference enabled or not.
In the end i just formatted my Wii system which sorted out my news channel.

Sadly formatting doesn't completely restore the system:

- my version stayed at 3.2e, instead of reverting back to 3.3e
- all cIOS/IOS's were still installed
- hidden channels weren't removed

So i'm still not any closer to backed disc reading.

    If its to do with hardware from 80s to early 90s then that's fine, but for the 64-bit systems then that could be an issue.

    Yeah! All you need to enjoy some emulation is an old PC and some mind altering substances!

    @Shape, Don't know about that last part, but still, a PC with decent specs should do the job.

    I consider the steamdeck a powerhouse because it can run Unity in windows mode without crashing repeatedly...

    It just has bare minimum requirements to make it enjoyable and a fair MSRP which you can get a decent pc for $400 still

    Back in the 90s you could expect to drop at least a grand for what was considered bare bones back then

    @M4x1mumReZ An emulation machine or a media center seem to be most modder's go-to case mods, but I bet we could come up with something much cooler...
