At one point in time, we were getting a lot of unhappy customer reaching out to us, especially at the beginning of the Pandemic with the transition to Work From Home. They had their set up fully functional for work, but since they are working from home now, that set up remains hooked up during their down time.
Of course, if you enjoy your TV for entertainment, and with the Lockdown, more people started streaming movies and programs at home, they wanted to be able to watch it over the dock to avoid re-organizing their entire set up to go from work time to home time.
This was a problem in the beginning because the Chipset had not been set for HDCP compliance, so you could watch YouTube, but not YouTube TV, you could watch an illegal torrent site, but not stuff you were paying to view legally like Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime Videos and such.
We understand that it upset a lot of people, but there was nothing we could do about it, as we used the chipset in our docking stations, but we didn't manufacture the chipset itself. Also to make just one product compliant to make it too expensive to market as our docking stations are work stations, and it wasn't built with leisure use in mind. The same way we still do not recommend our docking station for gaming - it won't meet the high demands of gaming performance needs.
In fact the docking stations weren't even designed initially with the concept of people using them everyday continuously for video conference calling and such either. The Pandemic changed the face of how customers were using the same product they were purchasing, since instead of leaving it in their office, it was in their homes now.
The good thing is, though it's taken time, we have adapted and keep adapting to meet the needs of our customers, as how current times have changed how our products are used. You change, we change with you.
With the Dual Display feature, if you only need one display for yourself to work with, you can always play something else on the other Display to entertain others at home.
All this to say, yes you can now enjoy your favorite movie on Hulu, Netflix, Disney+ and such over the docking station when your work day is done and all you want to do is sit back, relax and let yourself be taken away by the magical world of movies and broadcast entertainment. Do keep in mind that all the accessories you're using as well, aside from the dock must be HDCP compliant. We don't personally think you're trying to rip a movie, but the Entertainment Industry needs to do what they do to stay alive, and we must comply.
