The ThumbDV™ is sold as bare hardware and, as is stated on the website, software and software support are from the authors of such software. 

 

You have a satisfaction guarantee and by contacting sales can return it for a refund. 

 

Or you can spend a little time asking other users how to overcome your operational problems.

Perhaps you can turn your unpleasurable experience into something positive by creating a HOWTO of how you overcame your hurdles, or even a YouTube video HOWTO? Just a thought, because you do seem to be passionate about this and how else better to turn lemons into lemonade?

I don't have to carry the thumbdv with me.  I can access it over the internet from my Android phone or my laptop.  So it is very convenient.

Re: Absolute beginner Thumb-dv

It's almost as if ham radio required learning and figuring things out, and not everything is a canned appliance you just push buttons on. Who knew?

Sorry, I'm cranky and this just really pushed my buttons. But I think it needs to be said.

It does take a little bit of persistence to get up and running with BlueDV and AMBE, but once you've gotten over the hump, it is well worth it!
