In order to update your player with a new and patched firmware (code free,

macrovision free), you first have to make sure what chipset and maybe what

mainboard version there is.

 

The info screen tells you the chipset:

 

1. Press Open, Menu, 7, 4, 2, 0.

2. This brings up the info screen telling you the firmware version etc.

 

Possible results and options available for each result:

 

Player Version: STCinemaster 3.388 - Vestel 3.06b9

Driver Version: 401, Build 706-Configurable-1

Region Code: Configurable, All

Drive Type: Type 0-ATAPI, DVS-LDRDSL-710A, LT37

Memory Config: 8192KB SMI, 0KB EMI, 5519

Audio DAC: CS4335-3

------------------

Chipset:

 

Main decoder chip: Take a look at the line 'Memory Config' and look at the end

of the line. This tells you whether your player works with the 5508 chip or the

5519 (like shown above).

 

Audio DAC chip: Take a look at the last line. It tells you the name of the chip,

in this case it's the 'CS4335' and how many of them are present. '-3' means that

there are 3 of them (that's the case for my 5.1 player with 3

stereo(2-channel)-Audio DACs which makes 6 channels).

Drive Type: Look at that line. It should be an ATAPI device anyway. Almost every

player around comes with a DVS drive 'DSL-710A'. The drive's firmware (not that

one of the dvd player) is shown at the end of the line. Here, it's 'LT 3.7'.

 

If the menu shows 5508 for the chipset (or it doesn't show 5519), then it's bad

luck for now. There's no new firmware available for the time being.

 

If it shows 5519, then you may have either a mainboard maked '12MB03' (older

players) or '12MB04' (all the recently manufactured). You may open you dvd

player case and look for yourself or just try the update: if you've got massive

picture problems, it was a 12mb03 and you have to modify the firmware before you

try the update again.

(The version information is printed on the mainboard on right side near the big

chip (plugs facing backwards). It may be hidden partly under a label, but you

most likely see the '04' (in case it's a 12MB04).)

 

Mainboard 12MB04:

1. Just downoad the latest firmware version for 'SEG BeverlyHills2' from this

SEG-Nav4.1-5519-Atapi-2layer-Reg2.zip.

2. Then download the latest version of the tool abconf_03c.zip.

3. Unpack the firmware to a separate folder. You may have to remove the write

protection for the file 'hws.ab'.

4. Start abconf. Press load and select the requested files of those you've just

unpacked.

5. Now you can apply the modifications:

 

AudioDAC:

select the right audio DAC type:

AUDIO/dac/{'cs4335' or whatever your player has, see above}

then the right count of DAC chips:

(just choose it on the Audio DAC shortcut on the right, or do it manually by

changing the entry ba hand: )

AUDIO/dacnum/{'1' or '3' or whatever you have seen on the info screen, see

above}

 

RegionCode:

GENERAL/region/{mark the current setting and click the right butten. Then change

the value to '0' for codefree}

 

Macrovision:

(just choose disable on the macrovision shortcut on the right, or do it manually

by changing the entry ba hand: )

VIDEO/macrovision/{click on 'disable'}

 

Misc:

Enable audio output during fast-forward/rewind of cd audio and mp3 playback:

NAVI/CDDA/audioscan/{select 'enable'}NAVI/MP3/audioscan/{select 'enable'}

 

6. Click save and burn the files to a cd-r/-rw. Note that you may have to add a

junk data file of about 40..50MB (e.g. any 'song.wav'). This may be necessary

because some drives do have problems with an otherwise too narrow data track.
