Hey folks. I pulled the chain of my internal contacts at RedFox too see if i would be able to relieve some of you slysoft license owners' concerns (i'm one of them). They were very kind to agree and below is the question and answer list that should address a big part of your concerns. (INCLUDING PRICING!)

The product line-up seems to have lost a product. Classic DVD-Only Anydvd. What was the reason for that decision?
[Ivan] We are planning additional products, so this is a good moment to streamline the portfolio. We will be offering AnyDVD HD at a “nice price”, so a “non HD” version doesn’t make much sense anymore. You didn’t even notice, that we’ve lost three products – GameJackal and GameJackal Enterprise are gone, too. They served their purpose, but with Steam, Origin & Co. they don’t offer much value anymore.

Relating to the above, what impact will that have for current existing classic license owners? If they renew their license under RedFox, will they automatically be upgraded to HD?
[Ivan] Sure. Although most customers had AnyDVD HD already.

Slysoft licenses are able to use up to version 7.6.9.5 with the OPD being available for access until April 30th , 2016. What happens on May 1st ? Will that OPD be pulled offline? What sort of impact may users expect?
[James] The OPD will not be pulled offline. Old AnyDVD versions might die a slow death. But we will offer a smooth transistion for SlySoft customers to RedFox.

[Ch3vr0n]NOTE: All slysoft license holders, any version beyond 7.6.9.5 will work with your Slysoft license as long as your license is valid at the time of version release and the released version is NOT a RedFox Anydvd HD release that requires a new RedFox license!

Is there a decision made on the pricing of the products and which forms of license durations will be available?
[Ivan] No, this is still worked out. But we’re close. AnyDVD HD will be offered as a subscription, this is actually the only sensible business model, as there will always be new discs which need to be taken care of. The pricing isn’t ironed out yet, but a one year subscription will probably be 49,- EUR, a renewal 39,- EUR for the following year. Very simple and straightforward.

and reading those threads, its turning into a bit of ^&*%storm....

If this is true, I never thought I'd say it but then I hope US government shuts them down again. I understand that they are new business and old assets are probably frozen, but still give us 1 or 2 years to show that you stand by with old customers. Then politely explain that after that period you have to charge us again to stay in business. But discontinue our lifetime licences right away, no thanks.

I've migrated over to MakeMKV for my HTPC bluray viewing needs. I think the solution is actually more convenient at this point, and a bit more economical. I paid ~$120 for my lifetime sub of AnyDVD HD back in 2010 or 2011 and MakeMKV is $50 flat. Seemed like a no brainer to me.

In RedFox's case the old owner left the scene entirely, I assume also keeping any money in any non-frozen company accounts. These are old employees starting a completely new company in a legally questionable area and with limited assets, not simply a change in the domain name. They are only keeping the code base, which is a good asset but insufficient by itself.

As a life time licence holder of both AnyDVD (from before blurays came out) and AnyDVD HD I am very happy to be able to pay a subscription to keep AnyDVD HD alive instead of seeing it disappear completely.

Of course I would be happier if my license carried over, but I blame the legal system for forcing Slysoft out of business, not RedFox for asking for money to start a new company based on AnyDVD.

lol... we can only hope...

Reclock was someone else's project that was abandoned a while ago and saved by Slysoft. As far as I know they never did much with it beyond a few bug fixes and hosting it so I am not very hopeful. tongue.gif

Well for the time being I'm using custom resolutions to set my monitor to 96.904Hz - but that requires custom timings to achieve close enough to work. FOr 1440p it's 2652 1452 or maybe 1450. Then all 23.976 content syncs up to the point that I won't get frame drops for 4 hours at a time which is longer than any media so mission accomplished. thumb.gif
You have to tune your timings until the time between drops increases faster than you can catch it.

What do you use for NAS? I am migrating to a NAS because analog cable went all digital and it's no sense have a big computer for quad tuners anymore. Plus i live in the valley so i can't pick up free ota signals either. My video library is pretty big at over 10tb. Thanks in advance for your feedback.
