    Hi and welcome,

    in general the language of a linux is determined by the locale system and its variables
    Locale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/locale

    But settop boxes often are not made to be modified, ie: there is no package manager, limited read/write storage and updates are done via image flash..
    So even if this dvr interface would use locales, I have doubts that a new language can be added so easily.
    Plus, the content (hebrew translation) would need to be created as well.

    I would advise to read the manual of your pvr and consult the manufacturers forums/support.

    As I explained: These boxes often are not made to be easily customizable.
    Which exact product, model and version are we talking about?

    And no, you dont modify the firmware by compiler.
    A compiler might be one of many tools to create a new firmware though.

    In general: All devices can be customized, although with varying effort and success

    To get a more specific answer, you need to provide specific details.
    As outlined above:

    There doesnt seem to be a big hacking community around this device, at least I couldnt find a forum or discussions on a quick look.
    So I dont think you can achieve your goal.
