A couple years ago I purchased a commercial CD/DVD player for this system
(because I didn't seem to be able to get VLC to play some dvds). Turns out
CodeMeter came as part of the OnePlay player (as yum told me when I tried
to remove CodeMeter, it also wanted to remove OnePlay which reminded me.)

wonder if bad things would happen if I just blocked the network
port it uses (which seems to be 22350).
