Ugh, that's no good. Hopefully someone from Kaleidescape will update us on progress soon. If I'm really losing access to all my blu-ray disc content, I won't do the upgrade.

Thanks

Howdy folks,

The migration feature depends upon adding support for Blu-ray disc playback on Strato. As we announced after the company restructured, that's still on our roadmap, but we're doing our level best not to pre-announce dates. I'm going to quote from our September customer letter: "[W]e have re-prioritized Blu-ray disc support for Strato, which we hope to introduce in a 2017 release of kOS."

Obviously we understand that both Blu-ray disc support and migration are important features. It's a matter of allocating engineering resources among many very important projects.

If I bought an M700 now, could I use it's on board bluray player until supported by my Strato?

The M700's internal player can only be used with a Premiere system, so you would need a Premiere server to utilize that player.

An Alto can only use an M700 as a vault (i.e. as if it were a DV700). The internal player in the M700 is disabled when connected to an Alto.

Thanks guys, so at the moment, I need to either wait for the software support, or buy a 1U and the M700 to use my existing bluray collection?
