Hi I am a regular T.V(Team Viewer) user , but only for home purposes. I have 3-4 laptops at home( on diff. floors) and I communicate with them regularly rather than climbing up or down the stairs ( ha ha ....I am lazy...and helping the kids out with their machines from one place is pretty okay) each time I start T.V, it 'thinks' I am using it commercially and warns me. No damage done, after the warning I can just go ahead and do my stuff. I also have my work PC ON (24 X 7) , and at times I use it to get reminders and stuff like that (No actual work, but just reminders, or interesting internet links that I browsed when @ work...heh heh) Issue is, I am NOT using it for commercial benefits at all ! But T.V does not understand that and 'assumes' I am. so each time, I get presented a pop-up where the A.I thinks it's right. as stated, no damage done , I can go through and do all my stuff. Weird stuf now : But I am in Love with T.V (aaaaaarggh ... ;)) , I also remember having a chat with it's owner a long time ago when half of the planet did not know what T.V was. I used T.V at that time to converse with my parents and take care of their PC remotely . (Yes like am an obideient son ......ha ha) I had explained my 'Issue' to the owner then , I think it was 2003-2006 ..I could be wrong here, and the owner had explained, if its your parents you want to help, go ahead. anyway ..to cut a long story short...T.V assumes I use T.V for commercial purposes, while I know I dont. I dont mind at all paying T.V for all the fun I have had all these years....but how do I repay them without going into complex licensing Issues, because I am NOT a commercial user of T.V. Weird stuf now :Neither am I a millionaire...just a Family man with a salary But I understand that T.V is not the Red Cross & neither the U.N (running completely on charity) I want to let T.V know I am an ardent Fan , want to pay for the Gratitude I owe them but do not want to get into complex licensing Issues because I use it only for Family purposes( while the AI thinks I am not) but that chat with the owner some 15 yrs. back ...when T.V was not what the T.V is today , who allowed a son to help his parents , has brought me here after all these years to vent it like it is(& the ever-pesky A.I !). I want to pay , but a token ammount to T.V . Main Question: so how do we go from here ? Would Love to hear from the real T.V guys here .( as I suppose contacting the 'owner' today is a Bridge too Far for me) * at the end of the day, Maybe I shouldn't be here at all !....or shall I keep my mouth shut and just carry on the way it is .
