Well, hi at all!
I'm a new member and I found this forum searching the net while I was looking for a modded firmware for my YAMAHA DVD-S550 which adds support for GREEK fonts to external subtitles and file browser (CodePage 1253). Unfortunatelly i didn't find one so I made up one.
So, if anybody was looking for this, now it is available!
Download Original firmware from here: DVD-S550 v3.8
Download Modded firmware VERSION 2.0 from here: DVD-S550 v3.8 Modded for Greek version 2.0
What's new in modded version 2.0: FEATURES CHANGED/CORRECTED
1) Support for Greek fonts at file and picture browser (Codepage 1253 enabled, Font used: Comic Sans MS 14pts w/o outline). NEW
1) Support for Greek external Subtitles (Codepage 1253 enabled, Font used: Arial Narrow 21pts Bold w/ outline 3).
2) OSD Icon package changed with new 3D ones.
3) General background and file/picture browser background changed with new less boring ones.
4) Subtitles zone size increased to 640x100 and position lowered.
Please mind the notes provided in the archive above before upgrading.
IMPORTANT NOTE: FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK!
DO everything at your own risk. I am NOT responsible about any damage may cause original and especially the modded one firmware.
I tested them on my own Yamaha DVD-S550 player and worked just perfect, so I really don't believe that there will be any problem, BUT BEWARE.
