The only thing that has changed is that rather then the prices staying high they tend to come down a lot faster then they did in the past.
I agree.

Does acquiring a 1U+ to replace legacy equipment require the buyer to agree to the newer "Disney Content Amendment" or can owner's be as they were if they had not yet agreed to that amendment?

Thanks

No premiere components require you to "opt-in" to Disney, including the 1U+. However, keep in mind that if the 1U+ will be your only Premiere server, it will obviously not be grandfathered, and cannot therefore import protected DVD content. It will only be able to store DVD content downloaded from the K Store (and of course BR content). If you also want Disney content to be downloadable, you would need to opt-in, otherwise you would be limited to importing Disney content from BR discs and storing them in a Vault.

But if I want to replace my current grandfathered 1U with this new 1U+ I can do that right?- And the new 1U+ becomes grandfathered even if the old server is no longer part of the system and the old 1U loses its grandfathered status, correct?
