Thats great you got the device.I wrote some things to have a look at and then I went to my own pod farm and found only 3 amps too .This was because I just decided to open it without the usb being connected. If you have your usb connected, then I suspect it is a licence authorisation thing. I can't seem to find a post that mentions what the problem is.
When you open pod farm standalone, does it have a box saying not authorised and running in trial mode? Also, is the sound you want coming out of the ux1 or is it not making any sound?
What operating sytem are you on? I read something about a mac os which gave some problems I think authorising.

If none of these, you might need to one of those support ticket things they are mentioning up the top of the forum page under announcement.
Hope someone else can help you more.
