I have a DVB-S test meter. Satellite TV now has a lot of DVB-S2. Now DVB-S2 needs new hardware. That's fine.
My gripe is that the purely software update to allow the test meter to have a poor spectrum analysis feature (900MHz to 2200MHz approx) is hundreds of ££.
I have an Archos with now uselessly out of date Flash on its browser and no way to load my own applications. Only Archos supplied applications. The flash / HDD bootloader is so crippled with DRM that if you ever replace the HDD because it fails the replacement will not work.
Both consumer and professional equipment you can assume that support is stupidly expensive (cheaper to buy new model) or non-existent.
Lots of electronics goes to landfill needlessly.
