I have wd 500gb hard drive that I play my films from. Just wondered if there was a way to downgrade the firmware to original as this does not contain cinevia. Also I don't have £499 spare to buy a decent bit if kit. Otherwise I wouldn't be a member on hukd as I would be rich and not care what stuff cost lol
Panasonic, there the dogs.

Good for you.
I'm guessing you tried flashing it with the old software?

Have you tried renaming the old software with a later number than your current firmware? This may sound mad but it has been known to work on firmware updates.

...Well actually, If you were Orcinus Orca...
Serves you right.

So you have the time to sit there finding and torrenting copies of "your" films but yet cannot be bothered to put the disc in the drive and gain a better viewing experience in the process.

I am not believing.

Find the old firmware on the net (pre M07.R.0615) burn to CD-R and pop it in. If it won't update then try naming it something later than M07.R.0615 and burn another one and try that. If that fails to work look through the firmware files using notepad+ and change the version numbers in the files if present. Save, burn and try again.

As I say this may or may not work, depends how much time Sony spent thinking about people doing it.

For future reference you may want to look at whats in an 'update' before you agree to apply it. Sony update page clearly states that cinivia is included in the update.

Good luck.

If you haven't much money then get a wdtv, will play anything. If you want something decent buy a Revo.

They will do what you want to do

If you waste your money on that many dvds even over a period of years it makes you an idiot unless your income is tremendous in which case. Well done!
Cinavia is why I hacked the PS3 to be a multiregion Blu Ray player (no longer play games) and bought a Revo for XBMC.

The 2 file name might be slightly different in zip as the zip is 0600 and instructions are based on 0615


EDIT having now checked the finished downloaded zip file the instructions are fine as is minus the firmware version at the end.

All the real issues people have to put up with and yet something so pathetic and trivial "ruins op's life". If you want to pirate your films rather than buy them you get what you deserve.
Edited by: "pinkleponkle" 24th Jul 2012
If you are going to pirate films then at least stay up to date with the methods of preventing playback. Cinavia isn't new and Sony are the most active in implementing it with their technology. They updated the PS3 in firmware 3.42 with it.

FYI the blu ray standard now means that all blu ray players should have cinavia or be updated with cinavia. In reality manufacturers won't update all devices, they'll just release newer models with it on. How difficult they make it to bypass is anyone's guess, alot of DVD players have a simple bypass for region coding, it may become the same with cinavia - I doubt very much on Sony devices though!

You could adjust the seat when stood outside the vehicle.

Or, buy a car that has memory settings for individual drivers.

Alternatively, buy a car where the seating position cannot be changed.
