Topic: "Unable to download Control Panel" with v1.7.1526 unbricked Dash

Hi all,

I know many of you are running Chumby on your Sony Dash now. However, I preferred v1.7.1526 of the Sony Dash as I only really use it to display the time and the 5-day weather forecast. So a few months ago I unbricked my Dash back to v1.7.1526 and had been running it without any problems.

However, a couple days ago, I ran into a problem. Basically, whenever I boot up my Dash and install v1.7.1526 from a USB, I am able to view the Tour, successfully connect to my Wi-Fi, and enter the security question thing. However, at this point Dash becomes stuck at a screen that says "Network configuration, please wait." After it stays at this screen for a few minutes, it then goes to the "Unable to download Control Panel. Please restart your dash to try again."

So basically I am now unable to get my dash on either v1.7.1526 or v1.7.1604 because it is stuck on this screen. Has anyone else who has been using an unbricked v1.7.1526 Dash run into this problem recently?

Sony has unplugged the Dash. It is time to go ChumDash.

Your Dash cannot download the control panel from Sony because Sony turned off the servers. Your only choice is to stop using your Dash or go Chumby. Using your Dash the way you have been is no longer an option.

Tar, feathers, congress. Some assembly required.

You'll love it. Follow instructions and dash will be better than before.

I remain deeply appreciative of the work that Duane has done in fixing the Dash, and before that in resurrecting the Chumby.
However, it might be a stretch to say that the Dash will be better than before as the ChumDash doesn't do that one thing that the OP and I liked best: show the five day weather forecast.

Funny, mine does. Looking at it now!

Mine too. At the top. On the left hand side. Calendar and time. Then *zap* there is the five day forecast for my area and some other areas I put in. Any questions?

and I re-loaded the AppView theme, and the AccuWeather 5-day forecast works just like it always did.

I really appreciate the link. I now have my Chumbified Dash displaying the time and 5-day forecast just as it was before Sony decided to brick it. Thank you!
