    Get a DVD player. Or even better get a TV with a built in VHS player. Too bad the sound on mine is busted when I play VHS tapes. Otherwise I'd be sleeping with my TV right now.


    Anyways, yeah. Why fiddle with your Wii when you can just get a cheap DVD player?





    ...Wait, that doesn't sound quite right.

    Because I don't want a separate one. I want to use the same port. I have limited hookups on my tv as is. It would be nice to do it all from the same thing without switching inputs every time.

    It seems like more of a hassle to screw around with your Wii and mod it rather than just switching plugs. I switch plugs for my five systems, computer, phone, and PSP about 8 times a day on average. It really isn't that big of a deal.

    Anyways, I'd just buy a long shock protector and one of those multi-AV ports for the small colored cables.

    Homebrew is not safe. People updating to 4.2 will get b ricked and ruin their units. Search here it happens.

    auto updating is not safe, home brew is, when you know what youre doing.
    dvd x works great.

    home brew works with 4.2 now. actually, the new bannermomb/bootmii was released stable the day after the update.

    theres no stopping it, man and Ive had homebrew since the very first menu and my system works just fine
