Version 1.0.9 Released

August 18th, 2010

Another day, another release? Hopefully this doesn’t become a trend. Version 1.0.9 has been released to fix the bug with USB drives not showing up. If you’re using the channel, you must be sure to have the latest channel (1.4) installed for this to work.

I’m not guaranteeing this works for everyone. If you have problems, discuss them on the forum or go back to an older version. This will be the last update for awhile.

    Is it just me or do playlist files not show up anymore ? I had some webstream urls in a .pls playlist on my sd and they don’t show up anymore. I made an .m3u playlist of it and that does not show up either. Any ideas why ?

    Hello, first I want to thank all the people related to this fantastic project!!
    I have one problem or suggestion, because I don´t know if it´s only my problem or something not implemented or fixed in the version 1.09
    when I try to load a DVD image .iso file from an external NTFS drive, the Wii MC load it, but not the DVD menu, it goes directly to the videos.
    so, it´s possible to load the .iso dvd image and also see the menu as in a normal dvd and select options from this menu (like audio, chapter, etc)
    thanks again, Walter.

    Well, I was falling asleep last night when I commented here…
    In a very rude fashion I forgot to THANK YOU for your hard work and the time spent in this great app.
    We all appreciate it very much.
    So… here it goes… THANK YOU TANTRIC!

    It seems as though it can’t process over around 670 songs in a playlist, it just says there are too many to add.

    That means it ran out of memory. What do you expect? The Wii only has so much.

    Not sure if this is the correct place to ask about this, but after I got the 1.09 update, I was trying to connect to a SMB share on a friend’s computer. WiiMC crashed, which is no big deal, but now my wii won’t boot up. I turn it on and it’s just a black screen. Any ideas, anyone?

    hi folks,

    i downloaded the latest release 1.0.9 and installed- but it still says it is version 1.0.4 – not only that but also keeps saying new version update available – when i downlaod, unzip and install latest version, it still says it is version 1.0.4 and stll pop up screen comes up and says new upgrade available.

    i can read at the top of this that tantric says that latest 1.4 channel must be installed – is this where i am going wrong?
    what is channel 1.4 ?

    hello again,

    further to my above comment – i got it to work from HBC – it is definitely 1.0.9
    i removed the old wad, installed the 1.4 chanel – but although it shows up in system menu when i click on it – it tries to load but then just reverts back to menu
    any idea how the channel can be set up to work

    also, i still have the Mplayer Ce with wad – could ther be some sort of conflict issue?

    @serious too!!
    Same channel 1.4 restarts Wii, but 1.0.9 through HomeBrew works fine!
    But I want the channel to work, because leaving HomeBrew channel available is to harmfull for the children to brick it.

    I keep getting the Invalid Disc message when I try to load a Data disc. I did install IOS 222 (for ULoader) and 202 (thought it would help) earlier but everything except playing data disc seem to be running perfectly. Anything I could do or will I have to wait till the next update?

    Hi, can you use the same compatibility of homebrew channel using ios58 in your app. Using cios 202 or ios58 in any version of wiimc don’t recognize my hdd, but if i uninstall the ios 58 or the 202 in the old versions it works.

    I have the 1.0.6 and the 1.09 installed and the last version of ios58, but I observe that the movie is played better in the 1.0.6 (I’m speaking about the video) … in the earlyer post I read that this is know because the code was writter for the “old” ios, so do u plan to solve this gap?

    Thanx Gabriele

    I’ve a little problem.
    When I play a DVD with WIIMCplayer 1.09 launched via homebrew channel, then everything is OK.
    If I launch the player via the WIIMC channel, then he can’t read the same DVD !
    I reinstalled the channel but the problem stays. I’ve controlled also the setting and versions of both and they are the same.
    Where can be the difference ?

    My video playback over SMB works for about 10-15mins, then freezes. Only way to clear it is to perform a hard reboot of the Wii. Does anyone else have this issue? Playback of the same files from the SD card works no problem.

    Hi all, and thanks for your work. WiiMC is a great homebrew but… I got some problems with HDD detection.
    In fact, I launch WiiMC and I can go through folders but after a short time I got an error message and it’s like my HDD wasn’t detected anymore.
    But after a short time again : IT’S MAGIC!!! He’s back!
    I don’t know if it comes from that, but I don’t have last versions of cIOS. Could it be the real problem?

  41. jmaeshawn
    September 24th, 2010 at 18:38 | #41

    WiiMC doesn’t use cIOS as of 1.0.7, so that’s probably not what’s causing your problems.

  42. Chris
    September 26th, 2010 at 04:34 | #42

    Ok… Yesterday I tried with a USB key and no problem. I tried everything to make it crash but I didn’t succeed.
    The only conclusion I can make is my HDD is not correctly supported
    Is the reading better when drive is formated in FAT?
    In fact, I think it won’t solve my problem beacause I think it’s material. (HDD Western Digital My Passport 1To)
    Thanks for your homebrew

    Try reinstalling the channel.

    Make sure you have IOS58 installed.

    where can we get the channel installer 1.2? the official download list no longer include that. channel installer 1.4 and 1.5 both installs the channel, but when I start the WiiMC channel from the main screen, it restarts my wii.

    1.4 installed on IOS61
    uninstalled afterwards (just in case if you think that I have both of them installed)
    1.5 installed on IOS38
    now uninstalled as it doesn’t do anything to me but reboots my wii.

  48. Jax
    November 16th, 2010 at 16:58 | #48

    I have just installed IOS58 and finally understood what IOS58 does, WIIMC does run from the Channel list now, but just stuck on ‘Loading, please wait’ screen…. >.<
