Setter, are you a Authorised, Qualified, Yamaha Service Technician? Because to quote your "The AVS Forum doesn't condone the use of pirated software..." is pushing it.
are not an authorised, qualified, service technician then you
are using Yamaha proprietary software illegally because you are using it for commercial gain. Perhaps you didnt realise this?
Personally, I think the fact that you knock around the forums and help people out is a great contribution to the very small MCX community! You have offered lots of good advice.
I also think that you are ready to step in at a fair price to help people with hardware and upgrade issues which is also great
But if your contribution is more focused on self-interest, a little smoke and mirrors, perhaps a bit of unnecessary scaremongering, and bashing people who offer links to DIY tutorials, whilst at the same time touting your private services for a fee, then that is two things: 1. against the spirit of the community, and 2. against AVS Forum rules.
I remember some years ago when you were in the community asking for help and you got it for free. Funnily, for the same issue, the "software". Now you offer help to others but only for a fee. Please return to the "old you
". No-one expects you to do physical upgrades and service for free, but if you received knowledge and information from the community in the past, pass it on, don't berate others for doing so.
