Wharfedale 750S macrovision hack

Bernie (Mostly Harmless) posted this on Monday, 19th February 2001, 10:35

A friend (honestly!) has a Wharfedale 750S. It seems that it is possible to buy and programme a PIC microcontroller which can be installed inside the 750S to remove macrovision. We have the connection details for this but need the PIC software. Does anyone have this or know of a website from which it can be downloaded?

Incidentally, I now have a Scan and it is working just fine. Very happy with it (FW 2.08) although I`ve found playback quality is poor on one or two DVD`s. I have region 3 Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and playback is definitely a bit blocky. On the other hand Das Boot, and Lion King 2 are brilliant - must be down to the disc rather than the player I think. MP3 playback is really good - it is worth the money for that alone.

We did a uni project of a lego robot using PIC programming. You can order the chip (we used a UV-EPROM), programming board (which plugs into a PC serial port) and programming software (a cut down version of C)
off of their site:

Look in the Development Tools for software to get PIC emulators and programming tools (MPLAB).

Good luck.

I have no problems in actually programming the PIC, NiVZ, it is the actual code (i.e. PIC RISC listing or hex) for the Macrovision disabling software that I want. It progs into a PIC 12C508 - must be of interest to Wharfedale owners, surely?
