Topic: New software?

I've been using an Infocast for a while now.... standard non-connected, running the stock apps, mostly photo.  Woke up recently and the chumby software has replaced the Infocast software.....

anyone else find this?
Is this was intentional, now what?
I cant seem to activate the Infocast either, as it sits in "Awaiting Activation"

Re: New software?

what's the guid from the info screen?

I had that happen to mine, and iirc the cause was the cpu not being able to contact the crypto chip to get the machines guid

I probably have the least knowledge of most people monitoring this site. BUT I would try going into special options and resetting to factory settings and delete the unit from your account. Then start from scratch and see if that does anything positive.

Re: New software?

This does sound like the device has lost its machine-type identifier, which means that it would default to the 3.5" Control Panel, which won't work on a large screen device.

One solution is to download the Control Panel package for that device, unpack it, then put it on a USB dongle and boot with it - it will then use that Control Panel instead.

The current Infocast 8 Control Panel package can be found here.
