Need Help with accessing Pandora on my Insignia 8-inch Infocast Internet Media Display

Every time we try to access Pandora via the Music tab, it tells us:

"I'm sorry, Pandora is currently unavailable".

1) We went to the Pandora's website on our computer and it was ok.

2) We entered the correct email address and password when asked for.

3) We tried resetting to factory settings and got the same message

4) We tried unplugging it and plugging back in after 60 seconds and got the same thing.

 

We're stumped as to why we can't get back into Pandora from the music tab.

Infocast - Pandora not available

My 8" Infocast has streamed Pandora nearly flawlessly for a year. Just this week whenever we launch Pandora we get a message saying that Pandora is unavailable. The Internet provider has not changed, the router has not changed, and all other devices in the house can stream Pandora just fine. I rebooted the Infocast, disconnected power for an hour, with no change. I am guessing that the client software on the Infocast needs an update, but I assume at this is included with the control panel that downloads each time it boots up. Anyone hve any suggestions?

Bummer, Pandora is one of the features that drew us to the Chumby fold in the first place.  Not sure what your problem is, but I've seen a number of people with this complaint lately.  That made me check my 8 inch Infocast (updated some time ago to the Chumby 8 OS) confirming that Pandora streams as ever.

 

So if no guidance about how to fix this using the Infocast OS is not forthcoming, it may be time to try out the new Chumby OS instead.  It's less cluttered visually, and doesn't seem to sacrifice any functionality.  You can find the instructions with a search of this site, which weren't complex, and be done in a few minutes after downloading the files.

Ok. we're Chumby rookies.  How do you download OS updates to the our Infocast 8" tablet device from the internet? Do we have to plug it in to our PC somehow? thanks

Re: Infocast - Pandora not available

Go to the link provided for the Chumby OS 8 version (I found it at forum.chumby.com). It's a zip file. Unzip it to a USB jump drive. Plug it into your Infocast and turn it on and follow the directions. I did it today and Pandora is working again. Good luck!
