User Manual for Philips/Magnavox DVD Recorder upgrade discs
Introduction
This firmware can be used to upgrade a Philips or
Magnavox DVD Recorder to the latest status. After
you have completed the upgrade procedure, your
recorder will typically perform better. What
improvements are made depends on the upgrade
firmware you're using as well as the firmware that your
DVD Recorder contained before the upgrade.
How to make an upgrade disc
You will need the following items:
• a personal computer;
• a Zip archive utility (included in Windows XP);
• a CD-R/RW drive and writing application;
• a blank CD-R or CD-RW disc.
Note: Packet writing applications for drag & drop copying
cannot be used for creating an upgrade disc. Only use a
dedicated CD writing application allowing 'disc at once'
recording.
1 Download the firmware zipfile from internet.
2 Extract the files by unzipping the zipped file.
3 Write the extracted files – not the zipfile – onto a
blank CD-R or CD-RW disc, using the following
settings:
• File System CD-
ROM
• Mode 2/XA
• Character set ISO 9660
• Single session
• Write speed low
4 Finalize the disc. (The application may do this
automatically.)
ISO Level 2
Before you upgrade
It may be useful to write down the system version
information of your DVD recorder before you start
the upgrade procedure, in case you need to call
service.

close the tray.
2 Press SYSTEM MENU on the remote control.
The system menu bar appears.
3 Press ▼ (cursor down).
