How do I softmod my wii to load backups?

Hello, So recently I've been really into the whole wii softmodding idea.  What I want to do is install the backup channel and I have no idea what needs to be done prior to ensure this goes smoothly.  I have system menu 4.2 and installing the homebrew channel wont be a problem.  I know I need something called the "truncha bug" to install CIOS but thats all I know.  All help is welcome Thanks :)

How do I get wii to run a video file off a usb flash dribe?

Converting the file via wii video 9 is required, right? Or is there some other method? As wii 9 causes the video file to bloat over 5 times larger. Homebrew channel thing required? Is there any way to do it without a SD card? I don't think my PC has a port like that, even if I could borrow one from someone. My firmware version is 3.4u.

Wii - Play Backup Games without modchip -- System Menu V 4.0 ?

Please note: I am beginner at this. Ok, here is what I have done: 1. I have upgraded my System Menu to version 4.0 using the update option from the Wii2. Following this instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/S9RV0FWFN4H8OED/ I have installed cIOS36 Rev7. This means that I have also installed Homebrew Channel (using Bannerbomb exploit ). 3. Following the same instructable I have got to the point where I got the Error ret-2011 which a lot of other people (with System Menu 4.0) got: " tried to install the 04-BackupLauncher0.3g+_249-NeoRame.rar like instructed below.I get a installing ticket...ERROR! (ret = -2011)"4. After that everything went down the drain. I have tried to follow this instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/SQHX9S3FUNOXOKE/ with both versions (offline and online), but I kept getting the -2011 error. 5. I have tried to follow other tutorials out there but I did not get any further because of different errors. Now I do not know what version of cIOS or other files I have installed on my Wii.I have tried to update again my System Menu 4.0 in case I have messed up anything but my Wii says that I already have the latest version installed. So my questions are: 1. How do I know what version of the Files I have and whether I have messed up my System Menu ? And how do I get back to the original System Menu 4.0 of the files? 2. Since the aim of this entire thing is to play backup games, how do I fix this and how do I get my Wii to play the backup games, from backup DVDs (I've seen that it might be possible to play them from USB devices, I am not interested in that right now). Also, I do not want to install any other homebrew applications (like DVD players or video players).3. If in the process I have to downgrade my System Menu, what are the exact steps to do that? Thank you very much for your help and I hope someone will be able to help me make things work !If you think you can help but you need more information, please comment on my question and I will provide as much information as I can

Hommade quad tape deck

I love quad as an audio format. I've been recording in quad a lot recently on my tape multitracker. It uses regular cassette tape, and the regular track widths, but uses all four at once instead of two each way. Trouble is, it only has stereo mixdown, and it records at twice speed, so I would need to modify any potential quad tape deck that I build to play at twice normal speed. I've figured out a way to use a 4-part RCA signal, if ran to two stereo amps, to get quad sound to my speakers. Therefore, I would need to modify my homebrew quad tape deck to have 4-part RCA out. I'm still a little fuzzy on the particulars of that. In order to read all four tracks, I'm considering just taking two stereo heads and putting them next to each other, but due to width constraints, that would probably mean being unable to sync their output, let alone record anything. I suppose I could yank the quad head out of a junk Tascam, but good luck finding a junk Tascam! Any ideas on solving this issue? Perhaps work in an output lag somehow on the forward head's output so that they are synced again? One idea that I have, if I can get the outputs synced, is to just pull the head out of one tape deck and make the wires long enough that I can install it in the other deck, still attached to its own electronics, though. Then there would be four RCA jacks out (two from eah machine) and it would require the minimum amount of hacking things up. Then I'd connect the two cases in to uber case (duct tape, porbably), and go on my merry four-channel way. Anyway, is anybody else a fan of this format, and have you thought about making a quad tape deck? If someone has ever ripped up analog tape decks (or knows the nitty-girtty of how they work), please don't hesitate to give some input to this project!
