Macrovision Probs –
Has anybody had problems with Macrovision chips? I've installed about 10, out of these 3 machines will no longer play DVD films at all (black screen, disk spinning). DVD games are fine. I'm not a novice, I'm an electronics engineer by trade and have installed NEO4s, Messiahs, Magics... etc with no problems, but Macrovision chips are proving a real problem for me. They are wired in correctly, and I don't dwell on the solder points too long, and I've also used Channel Techs code and Playstationmods code, with both having a dead machine to their name (or mine). If its just me I'll live with it and steer clear of doing them
Did you tried Neo Tech code? I have one installed for over 2 months now and I have no problems at all. It was on v4 U/C.
Yes Neo's de-macro code is the one to use. I've installed quite a few without problems. The resistor bank you solder to is very heat sensitive. For the PS2's that now give black screens, try taking off this resistor bank and turning it 180degrees and re-soldering it. The other side is not used.
Tahnks for the tip. I'll give it a try.
