    What is this channel? It is simply a Question mark, and its decription is ??? it takes up 16 blocks of memory and cannot be moved or copied, but it can be erased.

    @luminalace: It's unlaunchable, only shows up on data management.

    also thanks for all your help

    "The Wii console can detect unnecessary files that may be saved on the system. When this happens, these files are displayed as a question mark (or marks) in the Data Management screen of the Wii System Settings, or in the Wii Channels menu. Deleting these files will remove the question mark(s). There are no harmful effects caused by deleting them."

    Instead of checking the channel thru Wii setting and then Channels, have you tried actually using the channel through your System Menu?

    Lots of forwarders and channels come up as ?!

    It's not DVDx
    Sometimes a ??? channel shows up in the data management if you have some unneeded stuff installed on the NAND. It's basically there to be removed...
