Topic: Chumby LIVES! Wonderful!
When I saw Chumby.com was coming back I dug mine out of the closet. It had been there for at least a couple of years because of a hardware problem with the touch screen. I did repair it, soldered a few things, but the screen just wasn't working. Figured I had bricked it.
Then Chumby.com went down and mine went into storage.
Today it started to boot but needed a firmware update and screen re calibration. Found info on the wiki, d'loaded what was needed, used a USB dongle and CHUMBY LIVES! WOO-HOO!
No problem connecting to my wifi and for a while it even *remembered my old channel*! That doesn't seem to work now, probably because it's a pay service but that's OK! At least the FM radio, clock and a couple of other things are working. As soon as I make sure it's not going to crash, I'm in for the pay service!
Thank you so much. While I AM NOT a Chumby wizard I do my fair share of hardware hacking. I probably can't help much but if I can I will!
