Re: Archos = Junk

That's my opinion anyhow. I got my first Archos it had a stuck pixel that couldn't be fixed with the programs and pushing/tapping on the screen etc. Sent it back. Nearly 4 weeks go by (meanwhile their website said it was still being processed the same day I actually got it back so they don't update...

Re: Thinking about buying an Archos 5

Curious about any comments owners of the Archos 5 have. I'm considering purchasing one or an Archos 7 as they are very reasonable priced at the moment. I currently have a Cowon A3 which I am satisfied with, however something which can also have Wi-Fi support so I can do some browsing, e-mail, etc. ...

Re: MKV Support For Archos 5?

I know the 5 cannot play .MKV files. I tried converting them to .AVI files and they come out all jittery. Any chance we'll see .MKV support on the 5? Try converting them to WMV-HD (assuming you have the necessary plug-in). I've had mixed success - some are a bit jittery whereas others are spot on.

Re: Why is a5 disk so compatible?

4GB is the right answer. The hard disk incompatibility issues regarding MACs are down to file structures and formats. NTFS is a microsoft format which can be read on MAC's but not written to. Not sure about the A5 but if you have external devices which work in windows on not on MAC, try reformatting...

Re: HD Plugin help

I just downloaded the HD plugin for my Archos 5 and it does not seem to be working ?? I was under the impression that you could download HD video and play it on your archos or your HD TV .. Is there a link that explains everything to do with the HD plugin ?? Any other input would also be very grate...

Re: How Do I Make Converted Blu-Ray Files Play More Smoothly?

Did you watch the Blu-ray on your TV or on the computer. Your TV might be upconverting it (aka 120Hz), and it might look smoother from that. Always use XviD to convert it. It is better (compression wise and speed) XviD is not an audio format, so I don't know why you say WMV sound better than XviD. ...

Re: How Do I Make Converted Blu-Ray Files Play More Smoothly?

What resolution and bitrate are you using. I know you said you lowered it, but Bluray has a high bitrate. Obviously he converted it. blinkstar, does the audio lag? I think it might be your eyes. If you dropped frame rate from 30 to 23.976 and still experience the same problem, I don't think there i...

Re: Poor processing power?

No idea if this will help, but I have been reading about this issue, as I have had similar problems with lip sync and there is some discussion that suggest this can occur if the TV output in the settings is set to HDMI - I recorded a few things from SKY+ and the lip sync was awful - the settings we...

carheex316, I'd definitely be interested in finding out the make of this unit you mentioned as well... Although my A5 has behaved itself, I feel like I'm walking on egg shells and its only a matter of time before this thing goes badly wrong. It's a "sarotech abigs". It plays MKV files, outputs to 1...

Re: Poor processing power?

Whatever the reasons, it is despicable of archos to not know about so many issues. And even worse to not fix them. By far the worst company i've ever had dealings with. With the ipod, zune, sandisk, samsung, sony you wouldn't be able to record anything at all. This is about the silliest statement I...

In the first instance, run WMP, click on the "stream" tab and select more streaming options. That gives you a coup...
