Page 1 of Cyberhome ADM-512 Advice
Wanted some advice on the Cyberhome ADM-512 as I need to find a player that has:
A black case
I have a few questions though:
Is the MP3 quality any good?
Is the firmware update easy enough?
Can you record Region 1 to VHS (ie does it convert NTSC to PAL)?
It can be made into a Multi Region machine with a firmware downgrade, Plays MP3, Plays (S)VCD, Macro off with FW Downgrade.
MP3 Quality as I have found it is very good, Firmware Downgrade is easy, Just burn it to CDR and yes it does convert NTSC to PAL.
Its a great player for the price!
I`m comtemplating getting this DVD player, given up waiting for the 528.
What firmware version do you have to downgrade from?
On the hacks page on this site it states ver 9.8 or less but it seems 9.8 it the latest!
After executing the hack do you just enter the numbers mentioned here to change the region?
I downgraded mine from v9.9 to v8.0, According to many sites there is no loss of anything by downgrading and it is recommended, But you gain Macro off and Multi Region.
Easy to get the firmware file, Burn the file to CD and then slap it in your machine type 6,7 Sel on remote and the screen will say Firmware upgrade, I had another message over that saying Wrong Version but it updated anyway, Took about a minuite and hay presto one region, macro hacked machine. Thay are great value for money.
If you have any probs getting the Firmware disk let me know and you can loan mine if you want, 100% working copy!
The player comes with v9.9, you can downgrade to v9.8. I didn`t get the wrong version message when I did mine, but as Dusty says, it all works fine. Not had a single problem disc yet.
See this site http://www.cyberhome-help.de/fadm2512_english.php4 for more info, and get the firmware on this page http://www.cyberhome-help.de/download_firmware_english.php4 - I used the A009.8 version.
