    Unless I am loosing my mind, my post at time index: 27th Feb 2011 18:42 said to use exacly that link and there are several DOWNLOAD buttons big as day. You pick the one for your USA unit ILO, LITEON etc. Good luck with your conversion to 512GB and the DVD drive repalcement. Its lots of fun to play with these units.

  2. Actually, Batchman didn't particularly want to use any particular firmware update, but just wanted to find out which one(s) I would likely need to use. Between the three of you, it's pretty well established! Thanks to all three of you!

    Looking forward to this!

  3. Hard drive arrived, installed it, formatted fine, everything is wonderful.

    Still had to install it upside-down ... if I had tried to install it right-side-up, it probably wouldn't have fit in the case ... I would have needed new cables because the ide cable and the power cable were both too short to swap places ... and even without those two problems, the bridge would not have fit.

    Thanks all for your help ... my ilo is fully back in business, and much more of a powerhouse!

    Hi,
    I recently dusted down my old Philips DVDR 520H following the death of a Panasonic DVD recorder. The Philips works well but I have never managed to hack it. Nowadays an 80GB is pathetic - and the CP is annoying when I wanted to preserve my VHS collection.
    Bithead9 did you ever manage to get a firmware hack working with the 520H?
    If so, any chance of posting it?

    Thanks in advance guys,

    The Prof

  5. Hi Prof., in the spirit of helping, I remember bithead9 posting it before and I found the thread. Look in the 13th post in the link below, the file is there.

    Here's the link to the Philips HDD replacement thread.

    Just noticed that you are in the UK, I believe tis file is for the US model, I don't think it's compatible as the file is produced from the US firmware.

    Hopefully bithead9 will chime in.

    Thanks very much - I know the Philips is positively ancient nowadays but it's still giving good service. Prof.

  9. Here's the site where they're all stored. Not knowing where you're from pick the appropriate flag to access the firmware required.

  11. Just tried it and seems to be working now as I just downloaded the 5045 US firmware in about a minute.

  19. hi again bithead9. I'll will also put this one in my archives. Would you also have the macrovision hacked larger HDD file for the UK 5045 model by any chance? Liked to provide it to another user on this board that I've helped with the MV hack but without the 512 GB upgrade.

    I am pretty sure I do. Do you know the NAME of the original firmware file ? Is that the LNJCE201.DA0 file ?

    Oh and I thought the 5045 for UK was the 5026 ? or did they have both in the UK ?

  22. Hi Bithead9, yes they had both and the file you mentioned sounds right, 201 is a firmware version for the 5045 and the LNJCE (E is the digit for England). Every other UK files in my collection have "E" in their name. I have the 204 US 5045 version and the name is LNJCU as they used U for US.

    My Canadian friend, please see attached UK 0204 version. I think this is pre-patched but not for HDD. if you need HDD to 512GB then let me know and I will check/patch it.

  24. Hi again, the poster that I'm helping out already has the 0197 hack for his 5045 but not the large HDD. I do have the hacked 204 you posted. I wouldn't mind getting the MV hacked UK 204 with large HDD firmware to offer to the poster and also for my personal archive.
