    I had the same suggestion once

    basically I just bought a new nintendo DS and wanted to do fun things with the wii and DS, and was disappointed the nintendo channel didnt work anymore

    I believe it may be possible, and many demos have been dumped - if someone is looking for a new wii homebrew project this would be a good one, and something untapped so far, as far as homebrew apps go

    its a really cool connectivity feature with the systems thats being laid dormant

    do you mean with emulation or a flashcart? my DS isnt modded, and its not quite the same connectivity thing

    do I need special transmitters or whatnot, how would I do this?

    I would still prefer a more direct wii to DS kind of functionality (its something thats within both systems anyway), but I would like to know about this thing too

    hmm I dont know if my newer wireless network card will be compatible (it needs a very specific kind), and links to some files are broken, but I will google search and give it a shot at working this anyway

    its interesting information to have at any rate - thanks

    As we all know, the Wii could send DS demos Natively using the Nintendo Channel. I wonder if we can reverse engineer it for the wii send demos again... (or get the nintendo channel back, that's fine too)

    the riiconnect thing seems pretty interesting for getting the nintendo channel operational, however in such a setup youd only be able to get the nintendo DS demos the riiconnect team puts up

    it would be cool if there was a little (barebones) app where you can put on any DS demo rom you please in a certain folder, and then when you select that file it will search and transfer over from your wii to DS

    it seems like it could be simple, but I dont know really
