    I wonder if Nintendo covered this.:idea:
    Has anyone yet tried to download a game through the shop channel and save it to their SD card and then save it to another Wii?
    Probably wouldnt work but just curious. Not that I actually know anyone else who has a Wii or anything lol.

    I'm sure that the game/program that you download onto your wii and then your SD card, has something in its source code that prevents you from using it on another console. Nintendo would be stupid not to protect their investments.

    VC Games are locked to your Wii. Each Wii has a unique system code which you can not change.

    So no, you can't trade VC games.

    i think they might let you use it on another console. just not save it.

    Under those sort of situations, they'll transfer your account to the replacement Wii.
