I am now having connection problems to the Chumby network, from BOTH of my Chumbys (Chumbies? Please donâ€™t ask why I have two!).
Originally, they were not changing widgets, and when I rebooted, both returned the error reported above:
Unable to download the Chumby Control Panel ... Please restart your chumby to try again. If the problem persists, please contact custom support by emailing: email@example.com
Iâ€™ve reset my router and cable modem, and initially one Chumby booted, and the other seemed like it was going to reboot, but wanted me to manually reset the time, defaulting to December 31st, 1969 (epoch zero). After a few more reboots, including one time when it claimed it was no longer registered, it eventually booted correctly and I had my widgets back.
Both worked for a few (3+) hours, and both are now not working again. I rebooted one, and am getting the error message reported above. I did not reboot the other -- which I use as a clock -- and it is faithfully displaying the built-in Chumby clock, but I have none of my widgets. I can make a WiFi network connection from the Control Panel to my router, and can successfully get a DHCP address, but I cannot get connected to the Chumby network (Control Panel claims that my Chumby is not registered).
Also, other WiFi Internet access is working fine for me â€“ same WiFi router and same cable modem -- for other devices, including a VoIP phone and an Apple TV. So I donâ€™t think this is a problem with my local network.
I am on the East coast (New York), but the last posting from support said the problem was resolved the morning of May 2nd. This is to confirm that I am seeing this problem on Sunday, May 4th. I did not have any problems prior to today (both Chumbys were working as of late last night).
