there's a new warning-advice about the risk of updating the wii if it has undergone "non-authorized technical modification". at least, that's the first time I've ever seen it...

I have the clock, but I saw on the first page of this thread that there is a 'clock channel'? Is this true?
I think that the clock is stored at the same place as the channels.

Also, there are two Capcoms in the Shop Channel. I guess the company's having an identity crisis.

That's the Capcom that likes money and the Capcom that doesn't like money.

Like me, you probably haven't had it on WiiConnect24 for a while so it hasn't downloaded that info.

I got Error Code 32004, too. Does anybody know what it is?

Now all I want is a start-up screen that has a big Wii logo... just to give more personality.

I just bought Wave Race 64 on the Japanese VC, but now I'm having download troubles.

Bleh.

They took my 1000 points too. :(

EDIT: Wow, leaving the Wii Shop Channel and returning really did the trick.

Yeah, I get a digital clock in the dashboard under the date.. But I heard there was a whole channel devoted to the clock.

What I meant is if you go in "Data management" and then in the "Channels" section, you'll see that the clock is stocked in memory where all the other channels are.

Edit: Or not, I don't see it. :\

Wii Drought Channel AMIRITE?

Also for those curious about the news ticker, I don't believe it'll properly use WiiConnect24 still (invisible updating). There may be a need to occasionally "Start" the channel to download all the headlines.

Right. When I opened the news channel tonight (for the first time since I downloaded it), it said that it can't display headlines unless you connect to the channel frequently.

Yeah... WiiConnect24 is, sadly, a massive joke, which is disappointing considering how awesomely cool it originally sounded. I shouldn't need to manually connect to download news headlines, for instance. Or manually do firmware updates.

I was getting that same error. Tried 3 times. Then I went to "Test Connection" and it said the test was successful and prompted me to update from there, and that actually worked. So some of you might want to try that as well.

Why wouldn't it? The news channel, weather channel + Everybody votes channels already use WC24.

pretty nice update

im gonna try running a game off the SD, if it works, then this is an AMAZING update.

I still want them to let me take my VC games my SD card to a friends house and play them, like link ownership to my Mii in my wiimote.

The implementation has always felt rather broken to me. On occasion I'd click on the Forecast Channel button and I'd see the current weather but sometimes I'd need to start it up to obtain this info (my USB connector is on a good part of the day so this should be no problem). Also the headlines can sometimes take minutes to download under the News Channel making it pretty ineffective unless you wanted to devote 20 minutes to check the news more fully. If I still need to download the headlines on my own time, then why bother using WiiConnect24 for this feature.

Oh, I just remembered. There are still no channel folders available for sorting VC games. I want all my NES games in a NES folder, and so on. Make it happen, Nintendo.

Man, it must suck in other territories. In the what's new section of the Japanese site they list things like upcoming games, what changed in the shopping channel and all sorts of stuff. They've been doing it since the Wii came out.

This update seems to have updated router compatibility too.

I have a Comcast-issued Netgear router that previously was unable to access the News, Weather, and Everybody Votes channels. Now I can get into everything except Everybody Votes.

Reset your router or play with the settings. I did that and got it to work.

Also I'm disappointed that you STILL need to turn standby mode to use the weather and news channel.

My menu clock is wrong. How do I fix it?
