    Just got wii iplayer through a wii system update. Mostly working but there is a bandwidth related pause every few minutes.

    Iplayer works fine on macs on the same wireless – unlikely to be bandwidth issue of ISP.

    Hope this is useful and wish this issue could be fixed.

      As has already been discussed, the main issue is that the Wii doesn’t have a hard drive to buffer to – it has a relatively small amount of memory and that is it. However, the rumour is that a Wii hard drive is imminent – in which case, a new version of the Wii iPlayer that can access this may be a solution.
