    First, you can use my mod firmware (it's a variant of 3980) - 2 bytes different

Is there any way to permanently set the resolution option. My tv is a 720p so I would like to upconvert everyting to 720p, not 1080i or something else.

    2. Subtitle font seems weird and hard to read when I play DVD movies through USB in HDD.

    thanks a million.
    1. I really don't know why, but if your TV is only 720p, other resolution in player (setup) are disable.
    2. How do you see subtitles for DVD movies through USB ???

    I bought a DVP5992/37 today and tried out these 3 firmwares:
    DVP5990_37_vb6_v2_3_1
    DVP5990_37_vb6_v2_3_1_CD_Logo_UOP
    DVP5990_37_vb6_v2_3_1_DivX_Logo_V2File_Browser_UOP

    I really dislike the large PHILIPS banner on the 1st & 2nd firmware above. The original firmware do not have this banner and it looks better. The File Browser is very nicely done with thin borders and dark colors makes it easy on the eyes.

    The 3rd one I tried with the DivX logo is a big improvement over the large PHILIPS banner. But I wished it kept the File Browser by vb6rocod because it seemed to go well with this background. This V2 File Browser is kinda bright and strains the eyes. I kept this one anyway because I'd rather not see the PHILIPS banner. Please release another version with the DivX logo background + vb6rocod's File Browser. Thanks.

    The V2 File Browser is a little bright, I might try to tone it down a bit.

    I was using all the items you mentioned when I received the error. I finally tried making the File Browser mpeg2 file smaller from 43.8 KB to 38.9 KB and that worked without error.

    Thanks for the response.

    For the umpteenth time: the player does not read IFOs from USB, therefore all info stored in them, like subtitle color is ignored. That's why the subtitles are messed up.

    Can anyone recommend a firmware version for me, please

    5990/37, of course. English. North America.

    I see so many versions here and have no wish to brick my player.

    I was originally looking here, but don't know which one.
    http://vb6rocod.blogspot.com/2008/12/philips-dvp599037.html

    We primarily watch divx movies (2018 in my collection, last count), very rarely DVD's.

    Very much appreciated.

    Anyone know of an alternative to Swissknife

    Will not install on my XP machine or work on my Vista machine.

    Installation just hangs on XP and in Vista it installs, but I get a message of a missing .dll file when trying to run it.

    Tried different compatibility modes with no success.

    Ideally, I want 2x 1.5TB drives hooked up to it.
    Does anyone know if the 5990 will support this?
    Will the 5990 support a USB hub?

    I'm sorry if this has been discussed before. Would any of these modified firmwares solve a problem that I am encountering. I just picked up a 5990/37 yesterday and am trying to see how it performs straight out of the box. It already comes with the most recent firmware listed on the Philips website. I was trying to play either a DVD-Video .ISO file or Vob files (in a VIDEO_TS) folder located on a portable hard disk via the player's built-in USB port. In general the VOB files seem to play fine whereas the ISO files are ignored. Is there any way to support playback from .ISO files? More importantl is an audio glitch or restriction. I run the HDMI output through a Denon receiver on its way to my HDTV so I can tell what audio format is being output from the player's HDMI jack. Unlike when I play the original DVD when I play the VOB files via USB it seems that the Philips player outputs the audio in stereo no matter which audio track I choose. If I choose DTS output I can't hear any audio at all. Is this a known issue and is there some way to get the 5990 to transmit the correct audio data via HDMI when playing VOB files via USB.

    re:Philips DVP-5992-37

    Is there a way to support Right-to-Left Languages ?
    Using the MTK tools, I was able to replace the main sub-title font ( font 8 ) with Arial code page 1255 which has all the required letters, but the text comes out left-to-right.
    I am using an external *.srt caption file.
    BTW, I used the original Philips FW release for the mod.

    TIA

    Love the added lines on the File Browser! One thing I noticed was a dot that appears when scrolling through folders. It moves from side to side across from the top listed file folder through USB. It doesn't seem to represent anything.

    philips599037,

    Please, can you update your DivX logo version with this new 8-line File Browser? And if possible, use your wallpaper on the File Browser too so both screen appear seamless. Many thanks to you and to vb6rocod for continuing to improve this firmware.
