Your Wii needs to have Preloader installed to install the boot vid. I just want to make sure the video is rendering properly on another TV.

Let me know if you can help :)

A button boots to System Menu, B button boots to HBC (Homebrew Channel). I plan to assign USB Loader to another button on the remote.

Hah, yeah sorry about the slow response.

Also, I guess there isn't a preloader anymore on my wii. I have my firmware up to 4.0 with mods to run all the bells and whistles I need, and I don't think there is one anymore installed? But I downloaded the CIOSCORP woftmod 4.0 preloader, but havent done anything to try it out yet. I'm about 2 months slow on the homebrew/hacking scene on wii, the last thing I did was (wrecklessly and without thinking drunk one night) installed the waninkoko updater that brings the firmware to 4.0 with SD load support and all while maintaining the bugs for homebrew. And I got the latest USB channel up and running, and that's all I really need. I've been having fun with that.

You gotta get Preloader on there ASAP. If you brick, and you don't have that at least to fall back on, you're screwed.

Haha, cool. Like I said, I am way slow on the scene lately. I feel out of the loop.

That's cool you are on the softmii team. I just got a distress call from a friend in madison yesterday, she tried to softmod her wii, and said it messed up, and didnt work, but didnt go into detail how bad it was. I am hoping she didn't brick it. I am on call to look at it this weekend when I go to visit. Hopefully she didn't botch anything up too much. Luckily, I am not responsible for it, so I can tell her only she is to blame.

If she has access to IRC or another method, I am more than happy to walk her through... or I could lend some guidance when you're over there fixing it.

Either way, let me know if I can help.
