    When playing a movie with Macrovision protection, press:

    Stop > Setup > Video > System

    Select:

    PAL (enter) NTSC (enter) PAL (enter)

    or vice versa if watching in NTSC

    Exit setup and restart the movie.

    The hack is not permanent and must be performed each time you LOAD a new movie as it appears Macrovision is only detected when the disc is being loaded.

    It also only works with the latest firmware revision, 10.01, which is available to download from

    Cyberhome's website.

    After the update you should change the Video > Format option in Setup to Auto:

    Some people have reported no picture after the update. If this happens, do a "blind" video reset:

    SETUP, DOWN, RIGHT, DOWN , DOWN, ENTER, UP, ENTER

    This should restore the picture. If not, press ENTER, UP, ENTER repeatedly until the picture restores (this just cycles through the video output formats until you find the required one).
