    Hi all.

    I don't know if it's a known issue or if my remote is damaged.
    But everytime I load an app such as Wad manager or DVD player from Homebrew, my wii motion plus disconnects and won't reconnect at all.
    The lights won't turn on.

    I have to use my old wii remote to exit homebrew.

    Is there a fix for this?

    Old homebrew don't support the new wii motion+ remotes, you need to use an updated version of the apps that have support for the new remotes built in

    Try using a more recent version that has updated libraries for the new wii motion + remotes. Now if there's an even newer wii motion double plus remote that I haven't heard about as indicated by the self-proclaimed 'wii expert' above then I could be mistaken, in which case the solution would still be to update your apps, but with a yet to be released update.
    The bolded statement is incorrect. Not ALL homebrew supports the older WM+. Since the OP never said what specific wad manager he was using, it's quite possible he's using one from way back in the day before even the original WM+ adapters were launched.... so there certainly isn't enough information at this point to say I'm wrong.

    These are the versions of the things I use:

    Wii 4.3E
    Homebrew 1.1.2
    Ios58 v24.32
    Wad manager 1.7

    Am I missing something?

    The wad installer does not matter as a wad installer can't change compiled code aka a wad file

    Ignore Shadow he's not being helpful. You just need a newer wad manager. Like YAWMM or Wii Mod Lite.

    On a related note, I caution you against installing wads without knowing what you're doing.

    Thank you.
    So far I've been installing wads via wad manager.
    Is there a guide that you can recommend?

    And on the same note, the DVD player app has the same issue of disconnecting the wm+

    I recommend ModMii but there are parts of the guide that don't support wii motion + controllers. That being said u can still download YAWMM from one of Modmii Classic's download pages. You can also grab WiiMC for watching videos, pretty much all the apps have been updated for wii motion + support u just gotta Google for them and update them on your sd card
