Call it what you want, the courts found that K violated the agreement they signed. I don't care what HDS does, they haven't been found to be in violation yet. And I am free to oversimplify my opinion as much as I feel. Your agreement IS NOT required.
Im also not here to police the "community". I guess that is.....your job!
No they didn't. The case was settled. There was no ultimate judgement that the courts rendered.
If you don't see value in what K provides great. But don't try to back it up with uneducated comments. I used to build my own media servers too, I even pushed a piece of software that does what plex does along as a user/forum moderator and decided that it wasn't worth the hassle to try and keep up with the new copyright protections anydvd has to be updated to combat. That's why I bought a Kaleidescape.
That and I could afford it.
You can have whatever opinion you want, but don't come in here bashing the subject of the forum with personal views related to K's affordability and start telling someone factually untruthful information.
