I got my wii the day after Christmas (launch year) which was then sent to Nintendo a month later because of a disk drive issue. March of the following year, homebrew was a new thing and everything still remained fine. About no more then 2 months after the homebrew channel came out that looked "nice" i realized that it took about 3 seconds longer- just by listening to the music after hitting start. I didnt think anything of it, even though it was also happening to my other channels. Now, it takes a minimum of 30 extra seconds to boot a channel, go to the settings or the mail. I feel like its going to keep getting slower & slower until it stops... Anyone know... 1. What is causing this problem. 2. Have this problem. 3. Know how to solve this problem.
