An anonymous reader writes "I recently decided to go all digital and create myself a media server, now the hardware isn't an issue, I plan on making a gentoo based miniDLNA server to serve the entire household (all gigabit ethernet). However I tried to start my media collection by visiting uv.com and signing up for an account.
The process to sign up was nice and simple and they even bundled a free DVD with it; Great I thought, until I tried to checkout and it told me "Your operating system is not supported, do you still wish to continue". No I have no plans to use my Windows partition for anything other than gaming and I solely want to be able to download to my NFS mount ready for my TV etc.
So my question is, is there any way for a linux guy to get media in a legal fashion? I'm starting to get fed up with jumping through hoops all the time to try and stay legal, I could easily fire up any number of programs and get all the media I want for free, however I'd like to do the right thing but that looks like it's not possible in the current state of affairs...
If anyone can suggest a method to obtain my media requirements legally, I'll jump at the chance!
Thanks /. in advance, I'm sure if I can't get an answer here, there is no solution and I might have to just elect to download by other means..."
