    Hey I just installed my wiikey. I heard about the issues people were getting with the connect 24 so I turned it off when i did my install. I was just messing around with my channels, turned connect 24 on, and I found that the weather updates. But the news channel claims that it is downloading the news but gives me a message "Unable to download the latest information" WTF ??! Is the nintendo server down?? Or do I need to do that connect 24 fix? Everyone votes, Internet channel, and forecast channel all work except the news channel. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Turn on Standby in the WiiConnect24 option. It should fix the problem.

    Not sure if it would do anything but you couldn't delete the News Channel and redownload from the Shop Channel?

    I just found out the problem, I'm posting it because it could help people who are have the same problem and are searching the boards.

    My problem was the wrong date and time. I didn't bother to fix the time after I put the battery back in. It's weird because everything works with the wrong date except the news channel. It was probably an oversight by nintendo not to put a time and date updater written in the firmware. I mean come on! it isnt that hard to dl like 4k of information from time.gov. Well, maybe in the next firmware they will implement automatic synchronization.
