OK, I just updated the firmware to the new one with the new Shop Channel design. I also downloaded Photo Channel 1.1. Now when I click messages, it loads those fine. But when I choose return to Wii channel menu, it takes about 4 seconds. And when I load the Shop Channel, it goes to a black screen for a year and a half until it even begins to connect. Anyone else experiencing these problems? My Wii is not modded BTW.
