Welcome back @chumby

Adafruit 3308
Welcome back Chumby.

After a year-long hiatus, the Chumby Service has finally been completely restored. The new service is a nearly complete rewrite of the original service – it’s been brought up to date with newer technologies and made faster and more efficient than ever.

We want to keep this service running and not repeat the past – which means we need to pay for this new system.

While we have managed to defray some of the costs over the last year with The Chumby Store and the CafePress store, that hasn’t been enough to cover everything.
With a $3 monthly subscription, you now can have access to a selection of over 1000 apps for your chumby and Insignia devices. All of the original user accounts have been restored, and any apps, channels and registered devices are back the way they were.

Without a subscription, your device will operate the same way it has for the last year – with all of the music sources, alarm clock functionality and other built-in features. Please consider making a donation, since even that incurs costs for us.

However, to get a full Chumby Experience, consider buying a subscription – it’s same price no matter how many devices you have, or how many channels and apps you select for your device.

    Will there be parts available? The touchscreen on my Chumby One is barely responsive. They only seem to have replacement power supplies in their Parts store at the moment.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
