Topic: Possible Fix for Netflix [Wii] Buffering Issues

Posts 1 to 3 of 3


I have found a very certain problem with my Nintendo Wii 4.3U. I am not sure if this applies to everyone.
I installed the latest Netflix from the Wii Shop Channel.
Occasionally I noticed that when I'm watching something, after a little bit it'll start buffering for like 15+ seconds and only play for like 10. Worked fine on my computer, so I thought about, what have I done different with the Wii?
Well I started playing gamecube games recently and had my GC memory card and controller plugged in. I kept the controller plugged in and took the memory card out and everything has been fine since.
Just now my videos kept buffering again and I thought maybe I was having wifi issues and I noticed I had my GC memory card in. I took it out and instantly the video started playing and hasn't buffered since.

So to fix Netflix buffering problems, take out all Gamecube memory cards. Controllers don't cause a problem, but the memory cards do.

Buffering issues are nornally an internet issue. There mighy be compatibility issues between your router and your Wii

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...
