Thanks for the quick response. The PIDV and Thumbdv are great products. The pidv works great as a remote server with the Bluedv client.

In the ambed documentation it talks about using a FTDI program to change the Product Description on the ThumbDV.  This is a Windows program and can be used.  An open source Linux program also works and can be found at https://github.com/richarde oin/ftx-prog

Do not change the PID or VID (Product ID and Vendor ID) as that is what the OS uses to load the right driver.

You can change the Product Description and Manufacturer.

Until the mainline code puts in the pull request, building ambed from github source, you will need to edit the source (just 2 lines) before compiling so it will recognize the ThumbDV Product Description.

Factory units will have 
Manufacturer:  NW Digital Radio MM/YY (where MM/YY is the production date, leave off for your ThumbDV)
Product: ThumbDV
