What can you upgrade?
System Software: Read the update page here.
Modem: I have not heard of anyone doing it yet, but you may be able
to put in a faster modem. William Woods reports the shipping modem is the
YES-336CL by PC-Round, a Korean Company which was located by Zachary Kinloch
as being at this web site, (however,
I can't read Korean). William Woods felt they might no longer be in business,
and from the web site I can't tell.
upgrade the software, a setup dialog
lets you fill in a modem initialization string which implies you may
be able to use any normal modem. However, it is very hard to get into
where the modem is (below), and physical size requirements might come into
play. Let me know if you find out where to by a faster PC-Round modem,
or if you find another modem works.
Memory: One user reported that no other combination of RAM worked.
However, theoretically, any 72 Pin EDO SIMM, 60NS or faster should
work, with a max size of 64MB according to the specifications on the original
Daewoo box. Does the system software support this? Let me know if you find
KILL THE DIALING SOUND:
With the upgraded software you may be able to
disable the modem sound by sending an initialization string in the setup's
modem configuration, but I did not try this. According to Ken Ballo, the
Hayes compatible init string for sound is m#, where "#" is 0-9. Thus, m0
(m-zero) appended to the init string would shut up the sound. Instead,
I tore the box appart and pulled off the little round cylinder that makes
the sound. To do this you have to open the box and pull off the motherboard,
like described below for the modem access. Then, you will see a little
black cylinder coming off the bottom of the motherboard in the corner,
with a silver center on the top. Just pull it off and the damn thing will
shut up (pleasing your wife if you are a husband).
Remove the screws on the sides and the top comes right off.
Memory and stuff is immediately visible.
If you want to get to the modem (or speaker), it is underneath...
Remove one screw on the back plate (above DC connector)
Remove six connectors for the three ports (print & VGA
ports) also on the back
Remove the back plate.
Remove all 5 screws on the mother board, and the mother board
lifts up and out.
The modem on the bottom of the motherboard, in a regular
slot. The modem does have a spacer to kep it proped off the mother board,
but it is plastic and you can beat it up.
The speaker is a little black cylinder coming off the bottom
of the motherboard in the corner, with a silver center on the top. Just
pull it off and the damn thing will shut up.
Detailed info I have collected...
GreenTech discontinued support
for the OS back in 1997 according to their techincal support by phone,
and so far will offer no technical support. I have sent mail to the contact
listed on the web page,
and directed it to "Alex", the
president. I asked if we could work something out that might help us
lost soles help ourselves. Mail was sent Jan 7, 1999, and no response has
come back. Update to Daewoo's OS instead, read here.
Note that the things I have maked in RED
are only what I have discovered; simply because something is not marked
in RED does not mean that it works.
The rest of this is cut from the OnSale.com web page,
for future reference.
AT A GLANCE...
The Daewoo Internet TV appliance
is a powerful, inexpensive information appliance that enables effective
access to the Internet World Wide Web and Electronic Mail using a standard

Use With Your Choice of Internet Provider
Built-in Award Winning Browser
Pre-configured to connect
to an Internet access provider with its built-in 33.6 Kbps modem, Internet
TV comes in a package that requires no installation and guarantees great
ease of use, bringing the information available on the WWW to the convenience
of the living room, at an affordable cost. Critical to this favorable cost
differential between the Daewoo product and existing multimedia PCs or
NCs, are the compact software and its minimalist hardware design philosophy,
the limited memory requirements, and the use of the sophisticated ARM microprocessor
technology designed by Advanced RISC Machines Ltd. (ARM) as a base for
the design. The device does not require any local mass storage and includes
a PC card slot (NO FREE PC CARD SLOT)
that allows users to plug in additional boards and expand its functionality
(<-USED BY MODEM?). A wireless keyboard is used to interact
with Internet TV. The unit is equipped with a smart card reader that allows
consumers to make purchases or do financial transactions on-line
(NO SMART CARD READER). Support for low-cost ink-jet color and
black and white printers is also incorporated.
