Hi there! I've been searching a lot on google about Wii problems but I can't find any situation similar to mine. My Wii is in 4.2U and it has a modchip (D2pro solded on Wii clip) but lately I used mainly usb loader and original game discs. I have homebrew channel installed as well as bootmii and custom IOS. So, here's my problem: Everything was perfectly fine until one day while I was playing TV Show King 2 I noticed that the game was running a bit slow, similar to when a PC is overloaded with tasks. Then I noticed that when I clicked on channels on the System Menu it took a while for them to maximize. The same thing happened with Nintendo Channel, everything is a bit slowed down and the sound is the easiest one to notice, it's really lagged and it sounds really weird (on TV Show King 2 and Nintendo Channel). However, when I'm playing a game (via Usb Loader and also original game discs) everything always ran smoothly until today. I was playing Wii Sports Resort (original game disc) and on Table Tennis there were some really noticeable lags, everything was a bit slowed down just like the channels and TV Show King 2. Also, the whole time all the sounds from the Wii Remote were slowed down and distorted just like Nintendo Channel's music. I tried thinking when this started to happen and I remembered that it started next to when I began using my computer HDD with an IDE to USB adapter to play backed up games. Can this really have some relation to the problems I'm having? If not, does someone knows what might be going on? Sorry if the text is confusing, I tried to explain the best I could and english is not my native language. Thanks in advance!
