A lot of these threads seem specific to NTSC problems so I thought I'd start one especially for PAL machines. My main reason for this is that, for NTSC(U) machines, Big Brain Academy is solving your problems. For us PAL oweners it's causing them. And that means we're not getting solutions when googling "Wii Big Brain Academy semi-bricked" (or variations thereof) The more recent update on the BBA NTSC(U) disc is over-riding the PAL 2.2E update leading to an in-correct update. Has anyone else with a PAL Wii had this problem? If so, what are the symptoms and are there any solutions? My Symptoms: Double Channels of Weather and Internet Original games play fine back-up games dont play at all. I'm able to access settings but when I try and update it says I have the latest update Solutions: reformat Wii- NOT TRIED- anyone had success with this? Wait for game to come out with new FW- NOT TRIED- any ideas when this will be?
