Working for me perfectly!!
Cheers Andy - I`ll give it a try.
Now if only we can get the all regions hack (Mute button to get multi region) sorted out, instead of entering the region every time - we`ll all be very happy.
I assume you can change the region as often as you like without the danger of a lock-up.
Well I`m under the impression it can be changed as many times as you like but I don`t know for certain.
It looks like we will have to wait untill some one changes it 25 times and posts something on the forum!!
hi everybody !
thanks to you, Andy, for the VCD and Macrovision tricks.
Do you know if there is a solution to play mp3 on the Philips mx1060D ?
I Contacted Philips about the MP3 logo on the display and they simply said it is the display they use for several units and the feature is not avaliable on the DFR1600.
They also said that the Dts logo has no meaning either as it is transmitted through the Digital Audio out.
I had no sound when I played a DTS Disc!!
Hi Andy !
thanks for your informations.
Just a thing: i tried the trick for playing VCD: it works perfectly for me as well
but the one to disable the macrovision doesn`t. I did exactly what you wrote, but nothing happends. I need to press twice the exit button to get out of the system menu..?..do you have any ideas ?
p.s: there is any informations from my DvD player:
Macrovision firmaware PAL/Ntsc version 005
Software checksum FFE53DEE
Software Date Code 010822
FE Version TVM502 2A304220
if you want, i can tell you how to make the mx1060 or dfr1600 zone free.
I try it and it works !!!
I got your post Yesterday and I too had to press Exit twice to get out of the menu.
I checked to see if the Macrovision had been disabled but used a different disc and the Macrovision kicked in when I pressed Record.
Been messing around but have had no luck so it looks like a it back to using a Macromaster cable.
Also, DZL how are you getting your player muti region because I have to keep altering regions as the Mute button will not work using the Hack on this Page.
Does your Hack make it region free, or do you have to enter it each time you play a different region disc?
If it does, I would be very interested to hear it!
thank you ,andy, for reply.
yes, the hack make it zone free without using your remote control again (with the 167 method).
