Hi, there is something I don't understand. Its written here: https://www.logos.com/product/168880/logos-8-basic that in the basic logos package are included resources in the value of 1,189.24$. Also the Septuagint. But I can't access those books or is there a misunderstanding on my site?

The Septuagint specifically or other resources?

The Basic package includes Septuagint Reverse-Interlinear but not the text itself. This is to enable someone who purchases the Septuagint to have access to the RI tagging.

Septuagint is mentioned under the heading Interlinears, but these are language features and not bibles e.g. they align an English text with Greek words and/or Hebrew words, or align the Greek text of a Septuagint to the original Hebrew text. You must buy an English bible or Septuagint bible to enjoy these interlinears.

My understanding is that with Logos Basic, you don't actually "own" anything. Instead, you get a renewable free rental of things. Going from purchases to rentals is the way the market in general seems to be going with the digital world, and so would be a different negotiation between Faithlife and the rights holders...

Since I am a long time Logos user, I "own" licenses to quite a bit of Basic.  But still, going to the page you link says Basic would has a "Total Value" of 386.73 - most of which is from 25 interlinears. The figure is questionable marketing hype from my perspective, but I have years of seeing overblown Faithlife/Logos marketing...

The picture you give is of the "Feature Set" resources. These are the resources that Logos uses behind the scenes to provide various linking, reports, etc. They are not generally listed when you do a list of what is in your library, since they are not books in themselves. They instead are things that work WITH the books you have. In the case of the Interlinears especially, they require you to have the base text in order to be useful.

But that all said, even if they are temporary resources and so listed as available to purchase on the web page, they are available to use on both the desktop and mobile applications as long has you continue to rent them.

Total value if sold separately:$386.73

I bought the Swete LXX but I can't make the word study tool to find how the LXX translates Hebrew words.

When I run that report I get a section "Septuagint Translation" that uses the "Logos LXX" but when I click on it, it does list Swete as an option to use for the report. Perhaps it doesn't work with the Greek-English Interlinear? That would be stupid, but computers and certainly be stupidly literal...

https://www.logos.com/product/10494/the-old-testament-in-greek-according-to-the-septuagint is the version I have without the English Interlinear. That said, I would strongly recommend calling technical support to get official word on what does and does not work....

As an aside, Logos 8 Academic Basic should contain what you need for free to enable that feature.

You must enter a Hebrew word to see how it is translated into the Greek of LXX Swete (in the Translate section).

It did not work with the Swete Edition I bought. But now I have the right one and for free!
