Welcome back to 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 Infocast 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.

Update (July 8, 2014)

There is apparently some confusion about the status of device production. We have not resumed manufacturing of chumby devices, nor do we currently have plans to do so.

The "new" devices being sold on thechumbystore.com are unsold inventory from the former Chumby Industries, and the supply is extremely limited.

We are also in the process of refurbing used and returned devices of various models and offering them for sale, as well as replacement parts as they become available.

We have posted a FAQ on the Chumby Forum that addresses many of the common questions we've received since the relaunch.
