They can charge a service fee for it. Those who can't be bothered to learn how to use open source shouldn't bother buying the stb's in the first place.
These open source stb's are for those willing to learn how to use them.

I gather that also the clone DM boxes are also affected by this moron's (meaning the author) decision?

But I get better picture quality from an Openbox than the DM. Openbox pic at bottom the others are from the DM HD.
How will it impact decoders with the older software on already? really Dreammedia ought to concentrate on building better boxes at a lower cost. After all they can all be built in China cheap as chips. Nobody wants to pay 800 Euro for an STB when a better one costs Euro 150
