HTSD3510_12.bin & HTSD3510_98.bin are exactly the same, so it could well be matching filenames.
Either work and not work.
Not working, no issues.
If the 12.bin works, it will change your region code of your player meaning you can then only read Europe disc (Region 2 disc).
if copying those 2 _98 bin files into the USB root directory doesnt work, then moderators better further test/ escalate this issue.
Bradford what device are you having since only see you in threads for NP3700 and docking.....?
The files are exact duplicate regardless of filename The region code setting is stored in two places. any idea which _xx is for what region or region-free?
_12 is for region 2 (europe)
_98 is for region 3 (Apac)
no region free as illegal for these dvd/ blu-ray manufacturers.
and copying both _98.bin files doesnt work? if so, hv to look into it Philips

hmm... on further research, this firmware may be to disable region-free coding via remote. anyone knows?
No but were you able to upgrade?
...But i live in Europe and have the Europe version!..
This forum is about Home cinema 5.1.It doesn't mater what version.I have the HTS5543/12 system and in this site there is the very type i bought with the software update.But today is no more there,philips realized that they has messed up and playing with customers with that non-working update software and has decided to removed it entirely with shame!
ha ha ha! that's how it is done. upgrade works as follows:

in theory, you can change to any region by renaming the _xx to your _yy and upgrade.
When I have time, i'll reverse the assembly code to see if region-free can be made (coding stored in 2 addresses). folks having time could try out all files to see if a region-free exist. CAUTION: I have NOT tried using different files for my player (not using DVD in other region yet) so it is a risk that your player may be screwed up - ONLY FOR BRAVE (FOOLISH) folks to try and report back. DON'T BLAME ME for the idea, you are on your own. happy playing different region disc if it works.
