    I posted a thread a week or so ago, asking if its possible to watch online movies through the wii, and a couple of guys gave me a list of the websites which will work. They all work fine, apart from one, which is tv links. Thats the main one i want, but when i come to watch something, the screen just goes completely black, and doesnt show anything. Is there anything i need to download to enable it to work? Am i doing something wrong?

    I don't think you can download from the Wii (right guys?). I don't know, have you tried going to other movies on tv-links? Hmm.. that's weird.

    You can always try ..

    Just another movies link kinda thing. Free, as well.
    If you have any other questions about this, please ..
    don't hesitate to PM me or anyone else about this!

    Yeah, You can Watch Videos, and Save then to Your Favorite, Via The "1" Button, but NO Downloading Videos.

    Yes, yes, it works fine with me too...you know, I believe there might be something wrong with your connection, check your router's channel in the router's internet page, and if it's not in the channel 1 or 11 then change it into one of those.
