Default Just Bought a Wii

I just bought a Wii and the Wii Fit thing for less than $300 and no tax. The Wii is pretty damn small! I want to find a media center app of some sort for the Wii. Boxee and XBMC look nice but I don't know if there is a Wii port.

Do they have component cables for near-HDTV quality picture? I don't like composite video anymore .

Well what the crap, it's sitting here at the language screen and it doesn't want to move to anything else.

Ok I got it sorted out. I didn't have the sensor bar in the right place.

What is a good site for Wii mods? And isn't there a web browser on this thing?

I don't need that, I got the internet working, I was just wondering if there was a web browser.

Yea, you missed out on the free Opera download. It was a free download until June 2007. It's 500 points on the Wii channel, which is about $5 if I'm not mistaken.

You can buy a 2000 point Wii cards on Amazon.com. for $18.96.

nice that wii invented some add on pack to download things.

good way to make cash, now I know in the long run it's a costing matter.

Hopefully you don't get bored with it as fast as I did. I went back to my 360.
