Hi
I noticed that there is a software upgrade for my DVD player, my question is.
a: Is it worth while doing
b: Is it easy to do.

Cheers

Hi Chris 57
Thanks for the reply, as Dave says will this work with the 5980 & do I have to download any other updates or just the latest one.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY FIRMWARE FROM PHUNKYFISH'S PAGE IF YOU HAVE THE 5980.

Everything else on the page is fine. There are guides on how to resize HR divx fioles to play on a divx compatable player. Links to apps for removal of packed bitstream. Guides on removing QPEL/GMC, how to upgrade firmware, and many other useful things that are equally applicable.The update etc.

So get the upgrade for the 5980 from Phillips then use the info from phunkyfish page on how to burn it and apply it.
