I decided to never install version 9 unless I have to.
I don't like the "phone home" it has mainly to check the key .
Of course like the other compitition software it needs the internet to decrypt BD,
That's the way all of the decrypters do this now.
I don't like that but not much I can do about it.
Except I just don't work with BD.
I think on the compitition software the only time it "phones home" is when BD is decrypted.
IIRC you have the paid version but if you are using the free after trial version it doesn't burn to disc.
I've never understood the reason for this since DVDFab uses ImgBurn anyway if you set it up that way. You can still do the burn seperately with ImgBurn . It's just not a "one-step" process .
