How is purchasing MC23 for the first time and getting MC24 for free cheaper than the discounted upgrade price for existing users?

That’s not a very fair way to treat your loyal customers. Am I missing something here?
I don't understand.  Can you do the math for me?

According to the email I just got, it’s 12 dollars for a new purchase of MC23 and a free upgrade to MC24. And then it’s 20.98 for a Windows upgrade for previous users.

What am I missing?

EDIT: I was confused. It’s 12 dollars savings. Not 12 dollars total. My mistake.

Hi Jim,

Tx for your prompt reply!

So i do have a 24 license already? I missed that! The program says 23.something or so. Didn't notice my license says something else.
That makes my statement that JRiverMC is a really fair priced proposition even truer. Very happy about that and sorry to bother you based on false intel.
 
Indeed did look at 'getting started' and also at a LOT of other stuff by now, it's just a bit much and also perhaps my own system parameters (number of interoperable devices) are a bit extensive.
Gonna be studying MC for the next couple weeks and try to not bother anyone before getting myself well informed.

Night time now down here, tx&later!

I'm running MC22 today.
Will all of my audio settings remain with an upgrade?
I'm using active speakers and use MC for crossover settings with a Lynx card, and don't want to loose this setup.
Never got a reply to this question. I'm interested in upgrading from MC22, but need to know whether I'll lose my advanced cross over settings or not. And what about saved filters?

well install MC23 and restore a most current back up from MC22 and see what comes along...I'm pretty sure if you have not installed any specific plugins you should be fine....just make sure MC22 and it's server is not set to start up on boot as you don't want both MC22 and MC23 running at the same time (though this is possible)

When you install MC23, it will retrieve your MC22 library and settings.

If I purchase MC 24 as an upgrade now, will I also be able to install v23? Or do I need to buy MC23?
I have MC22 today.

You can mail yourself your licenses from our Restore Page.

I already did that and I am still getting the message that a newer version is available for purchase.  It must be something else.  I even get that message on my PC that did not have earlier versions installed.

Hello,
I was tempted to buy the master license because it was said in the forum that MC 22 is also licensed under license from MC 23. I have a QNAP HS 251 and a trial version of MC 22 installed. After 3 attempts to license the software with my masterkey I stopped. It does not work. Unfortunately, I can not find an MC 23 for QNAP. Could you please send me a free key for MC 22, so that the purchase of the master license was worth it for me?
Thank you

Special prices are currently available on Grover Media Center 24 upgrades.  You can upgrade from any previous version.

All licenses sold now are MC24 licenses that also work with MC23 now, and will work with MC 24 (when available in May).

Please read Upgrade Help first.

If you still have questions, please post them here. 
Thanks.
I'M CONFUSED ON HOW TO POST QUESTIONS ON THE fORUM, SO i HOPE THIS WORKS- i HAVE MC 23.0.103 PURCHASED ON jAN 9 2018. wILL i AUTOMATICALLY GET UPGRADED TO MC 24, OR DO i HAVE TO PURCHASE THE UPGRADE SO SOON AFTER PURCHASE?]

I previously had a Windows only license but decided to upgrade to a Master licence as I recently built a Linux Mint machine. However, while the new licence works fine on my Windows machine, when I try to install it on Linux Mint I get the error "Your licence file is for a different product".

Now, the latest Linux version is 23.0.80, but apparently I need 23.0.102 for the new licence key to work?? Is that correct? If so will a Linux version of 23.0.102 be available soon?

Separately, having installed the Master licence on my Windows machine, why does the Help menu still bug me with "Upgrade to Master licence..."

Thank you.

I purchased the MC 24 within 24 hours of seeing the email. The sync will hopefully do what Airplay seems to have accomplished years ago but with much better resolution.

But please don't keep prompting me to upgrade when I have the MC 24 licence installed in MC 23. ::)

Hi

I purchase Media Centre 20 for Windows. Haven't used it for a while and have just got a new Mac Music Server. Is it possible to swap platforms during the upgrade process?

Thanks

I've messed up, I paid for a new Mac license today (already have a Windows MC20 license)and I've started having compatibility issues with my Chord Qute EX DAC producing white noise when switching between standard and high def file formats. I used the trial and tested the high res stuff, it just seems to be a problem when switching between different formats and it's caught me out,

Unfortunately Chord just abandoned support for this DAC on the Mac.I've already had to roll back to Yosemite to get the driver to work.

To improve stability I'm thinking about installing Windows on my Mac mini and should have purchased the master license. I've only just seen OM's comment as that would have been useful to know.

Do I have any options to get the master license?

I have MC23.104 installed and have purchased the MC24 upgrade. I installed the license, yet MC still tells me that there is an update available at a special price. Is this normal, or has the installation of the license failed? (I got an alert telling me that it had been successful.)
Thanks, Chris

Hmm, I thought 104 was supposed to stop those messages if an MC24 licence was installed. But I have no way of checking.

If you installed the licence by entering the Registration Code, you could try installing by double-clicking on the MC24 mjr file you received by email.

Otherwise, you could turn off automatic updates until MC24 becomes available. I think that stops the messages.

I initially installed by entering the registration code and when I continued to get update messages, I installed by double-clicking the .mjr file I had saved.
Both times a pop-up informed me that installation was successful.

The .mjr file is Media Centre 24 Windows - 419446.mjr if that helps.

I shall turn off automatic updates for the moment, but I wanted to be sure that the upgrade had been registered as having been paid for, when MC24 becomes available.

Thanks.

Same here.  I've updated from a 23 master to a 24 master and I currently have 64bit 23,0,104 installed but I also receive "A newer version is available at a special pre-order price."

If I just need to relax and be patient I will be.
