|JP May 1, 2009
The Wii "My Room" Channel (also known as Wii no Ma), is a video-on-demand service channel run by Nintendo in co-operation with Dentsu to produce the programs and advertisements. Wii no ma is viewable by those with a Wii and an Internet connection and it features family-oriented content, such as cartoons, brain-training quizzes, cookery, educational shows, and other programs produced for Nintendo exclusively. Broadcast began in Japan on May 1, 2009, and an international expansion is being considered. In 2010 several trademarks were filed for the name. The channel's interface is built around a virtual living room, where up to 8 Miis can be registered and interact with each other. The virtual living room contains a TV which takes the viewer to the video list. Celebrity "concierge" Mii's occasionally introduce special programming.
This channel's original online functionality has been shut down as of April 30, 2012 and works in neither Dolphin or on Wii hardware.
WiiConnect24 Revival Services
Both RiiConnect24 and WiiLink can provide WiiConnect24 support in Dolphin through a variety of means. As of, users can automatically redirect to use the WiiLink service in Dolphin without needing to patch channels or manually download VFF files outside of the emulator. This can be enabled in `Options → Configuration → Wii` under the "Enable WiiConnect24 via WiiLink" setting.
Stale VFF Files
As of, Dolphin now supports downloading VFF files from WiiConnect24 services just like a real Wii. This allows users to connect to services like RiiConnect24 and WiiLink without the need for a VFF Downloader. Users that have previous used a VFF downloader may need to delete old VFF files before the new services will work. This is because VFF files downloaded with some revisions of the VFF downloader have been hacked to never expire, so the emulated system will never attempt to download new ones.
