It's not real hardware, but hey, it's something Amiga-ish to tinker with! :)

I'm assuming you need to have a hacked Wii operating system to use this?

Yes...

and I can't express how very easy that is to do...

Though I guess if I you have no idea how you do it, it would come across as a VERY confusing process.

I bought a second Wii for the sole purpose of running the Wii port of UAE.

You can pick up a used unit for $100 or less. There is no reason not to have a unit for retro gaming.

Or a modded Xbox classic for that matter! :)

Also have one of those, as well as a PeeCee hooked to the tv as well. I estimate my entertainment center draws 1000 watts sitting idle. (not really)

I have an extra Wii with a broken DVD drive.  Hard drive and unit works fine otherwise.  Without the drive, is it still useable for modding into an emulation game system or media centre (for Media stored on USB/Smart cards)?

It can be modded via USB.

I would link you to the instructions but mod's may not like that. Google is your friend.

As long as the SD card slot OR USB works all things are possible. The Wii is a great little machine, it's just a damn shame we can't stick extra RAM and OS4 on it.

It won`t appear as an update on HBC Browser.
Does the new version run "The New Zealand Story" (the previous one froze just after the intro)?

Been out for awhile. I didn't find much of a difference from the old one. There was suppose to be wii motion support now and some networking fix's for the homebrew channel. I like postloader.. The all in one for homebrew, wii vc/games  etc.. Very nice.

Damn I hate that childish "PeeCee" crap.

And my HTPC has a 270 watt power supply.

You're never going to see an OS port from anybody that could face la legal battle over their support of hacked consoles (so Hyperion and the MorphOS developers would never consider that kind of port).
