Sleep mode, yay! Though I don't see anything about the problem with video freezing during playback via the DVR Station... we'll see!

Version 1.1.01 - October 28th, 2008
New:

System: Use suspend mode for faster start-up (One can still perform full shutdown by pressing ON/OFF button for 4 seconds)

Accessories: FM Remote supported (http://www.archos.com/products/imt/arch ... p=fmremote)

Video: Can now play H264 and AAC codecs in FLV streams (Plug-ins required)

Web: On TV, the page scrolls when moving the mouse to the top or the bottom of the screen

Virtual Keyboard: Can do Caps Lock with a second click on "Shift"

GUI: Full Screen Clock is now displayed only when in Standby or in the Home Screen

Bug fixes:

Music: Resume was not working with FLAC files

Music: There were some audio drop-outs with high-bitrate FLAC files

Music: The download pause/resume menu was not consistent with the actual download state

Video: Resume was not available after quitting the player using the Home button

Video: Sometimes video playback was not possible after using the photo viewer

Video: Sometimes the video search was very slow

Video: The device could reboot when playing a video after browsing the web

Video: The device could reboot when using "Switch to Adult" in the video browser

Web: Remote Control BACK button performed "Quit" instead of "Back"

Web: Predefined Yahoo search was not working

GUI: the list of scheduled programs was not correctly refreshed when scrolling

GUI: Background music was stopped when entering Tools>Settings>Appearance and Tools>Help

GUI: The MacOS hidden files were not ignored in the wallpaper selection

GUI: Registration and Online Firmware Update could conflict at first use

GUI: There were possible conflicts between Scheduled Recordings and Security Code request

GUI: There were possible conflicts between Alarm Clock and Security Code request

System: TV display was sometimes all pink when using HDMI output with Analog-out audio output

System: Wifi region was sometimes not right, which could make channels 12 and 13 unusable

It does work but the video has to have been playing for at least 15 seconds

I'm not too sure if that's a true bug but still, not perfect.

The Standby/Resume works great..

Now it only takes 2 seconds to turn it on and to start using it.

The power button doesn't work as a hardware Lock key in music player mode yet though.

I don't know if it is just me or what but it seems that the colors has been toned down a little.

Is it just me, or are the Icons on some of the submenus on the main page bigger?

Can anyone answer these?

- Battery Indicator/Charge - Is the indicator more precise? And do you still need to have the device on for the charge to finish?

- Music Cataloging - For the few people that experienced this, has the missing tracks problem been rectified?

The 605 is not 'bug free' after a year so you may have a long wait.

Decide which known bugs are show-stoppers for you and wait for them to be fixed by all means, but if you wait for bug-free you'll never buy.
