I get that SlySoft is gone and I have to buy a new license now that AnyDVDHD is controlled by RedFox, but why did the price increase? AnyDVDHD was 79 EUR from SlySoft, but now it's 109 EUR. Did anything else change besides the name? I originally bought AnyDVD in 2009 after building a new PC. I decided to buy a Blu-ray player and Blu-ray software and use my PC for Blu-ray playback since back then the cost was about the same as a Blu-ray player. After getting it all together, it wouldn't work because for some reason it said my monitor didn't support HDCP, which it most certainly did. After searching for a solution and nothing worked, someone pointed me to AnyDVDHD. I had already spent so much damn money on the hardware and software, so I bought AnyDVDHD (and it just happened to be during a 20% off sale). I kept using it out of convenience even after fixing the problem because it was nice to be able to put in a movie and watch it without sitting through unskippable ads and other crap. I rarely buy movies and I mostly rent them. I don't copy or pirate moves movies even though I don't agree with their BS DRM schemes that hurt paying customers (or renting in my case) that support them and does nothing to stop piracy. I though I had read that holders of a SlySoft lifetime license would get a discount, but it appears that was a misunderstanding. I would gladly have bought a new license if the price were reasonable and/or I got a discount, but I can't justify it at this price. Even with the current discount it's costs more than when it was under SlySoft. It doesn't help that I just had to fork out money to buy PowerDVD after three movies in a row I rented would not play on the discontinued ArcSoft Total media Theatre player I have been using. It was nice while it lasted. Good luck, and maybe I'll come back if/when the price is more reasonable.
