Re: Windows 7 x64 SMB network shares broken?

Never managed to get my W7 x64 shares visible on my A5A..... (booo !!)
UPnP works just perfect, though :)

Re: Tether to Android phone -htc Desire

Hhhmm, just about to receive my Desire from T-Mobile (yayyyy, upgrade time finally arrived !) and watching with interest...my current phone, Nokia 5800XM, has always worked well with tethering, wouldn't want to lose this A5A functionality. Actually, that said, I think the Desire looks pretty capable...

Re: Stereo bluetooth headpones (headset suggestions)

I picked up a pair of JVC HA-W700BT's a short while back - these will meet your requirements I have only used the BT controller with my Shure e3c 'phones thus far, but functionality with A5A is fine......the included JVC 'phones appear ok, spec-wise, just haven't actually tried them ! Not sure on US...

Re: fm transmitter

It's a fair cop ^^ 'what he said' lol
So I think my point was around *some* users managing to get barely usable results by having headphones plugged in and the lead wrapped around the interior mirror or similar......anyways.....doesn't work like that at all, anymore :)

Re: fm transmitter

Earlier firmware versions allowed use of the FM transmitter function, using headphones as an antenna - this has since been restricted by newer firmware. You must use the Car charger cable to use the FM transmitter functionality on the more recent firmwares. TBH, it was a little flaky anyway, when us...

Re: Android 2.2 'Froyo' and Flash run like butter on Nexus O

For me, I only really want Flash support to allow me to utilise one or two specific sites - example, I, for my sins, am a Liverpool FC fan, and their website offers live audio commentary for all games. Thing is, this requires the usage of a specific, Flash-driven page, and there seems to be no way t...

Re: Where to purchase replacement battery for Archos 5 Android?

....I had this done to my 605 Wifi. I replaced the battery on my 605 WiFi - well, actually I got my far-more-solder-savvy father to do it ;) The 605 battery was pretty easy to get at, but I think that the A5A one may not be.....that said, sure it can be done, just need all the screws identifying an...

Re: Car Kit -- Very nice! (Plus a note on the FM Transmitter)

Love the car dock, albeit it doesn't get used that much as is in t'other car.
Personally, I find that the FM transmitter works really well - only used a handful of times, but via the Bose soundsytem in one car it comes out just great :D

Recommendations for FLAC encoding

So, I think I am gonna switch a lot of my music collection (currently mostly in VBR WMA or MP3) to FLAC, and get a larger HDD storage :roll: Time to grab out all those CDs.....

What do people recommend for a decent rip-to-FLAC solution, needs to be Win 7 64-bit happy !

Re: Big oops... preparing for the inevitable

Pretty sure that the HDD is 'paired' to the mainboard in the A5A.....so might not be a (straightforward, if even possible) user change :(

Re: Volume hack doesn't work for me, why?

Thanks, Michael and all So I agree that THD appears to be the source of the evils ! Anyways, the Shure E3c's I use do a magnificent job of passively cutting out surrounding noise, and offer an excellent sound overall - guess I was just seeking a little free volume ;) Have to say that, 2 days back wi...

Re: sharing some explanations on deep sleep

Well I found that 'Deep Sleep' for around 8hrs caused my battery to go from around 60% to 8% - D'oh !
Meh, full off or full on for me, with the exception of turning screen off when listening to audio only :)

Re: Volume hack doesn't work for me, why?

If you're not getting enough to drive your headphones you're probably best off with a headphone amp. Agreed, although - if I am honest - it is not really a problem except for the odd track (and I do mean occasional) Have to say that the volume is ok, really, just the thought of "more for free" is a...

Re: Bluetooth headset pitch shift

Hmm, there was an issue on earlier firmware(s ?) where the music would speed up crazily after a suspend/pause or similar.....but it has since been ironed out, I believe. This would sound like a similar issue, however; some sort of buffer/stream issue ? Not noticed myself, but - tbh - don't listen ov...

Re: Volume hack doesn't work for me, why?

Have to say that I applied and then removed the 'hack' For me, there is a notable drop in quality once the 'hack' is applied, specifically in the clipping/distortion of music files :( I guess this is due to psuedo levelling/boosting of frequencies ? Either way, my reasons for applying were to try to...
