I'm new here and fairly new to ripping backups for my HTPC. First, I'm appreciative that someone took the ball on this software because I truly just want to put DVD's and BD I've bought into a format that's easy to watch. I got a two year license from Slysoft back in August for AnyDVD HD. I was running 18.104.22.168 up until a few minutes ago when I installed 22.214.171.124. I have mostly DVDs and BD that have been out a while and have not run into any problems yet. No new stuff on the horizon for me. I've got a pile of stuff to chew through, but most of it's been collecting dust - not brand new. Now, I may be misunderstanding the message I ran into which prompted me to install 126.96.36.199. I read through some other threads, and a pretty long one, and people were discussing the OPD. The more I read, the more confused I was getting, but obviously, I don't understand something. EDIT: If someone is wondering why I had 188.8.131.52 - I tend to lag on updates if they aren't security related to let others work through the bugs. (and, I haven't ripped in about a month) So, please explain to me, what that OPD is, how it works, and what happens if I go back to 184.108.40.206 vs. staying at 220.127.116.11? I do get that if there are new protections added to newer discs, I wouldn't get those updates staying with 18.104.22.168. But the message made it sound like I wouldn't have them for 22.214.171.124 after April 30th either. I could be misunderstanding. I'm wondering if I'll be getting any updates after April 30th given it is now RedFox, without re-subscribing, newly, through them. I'm inclined to keep using the software until I run into discs that need a later update, then re-subscribe, if need be. What's the best strategy if I'm willing to set aside any discs that might have protections which can't be passed?
