Re: Can't decide between Archos Android and iTouch 64GB.

I could not wait. I bought a new 32Gb Ipod Touch last night. One reason was that I already own 120 applications on my old ipod that will sync over to my new one. I have also learned my lesson in waiting for Archos to deliver based on hype and others predictions. After the pros and cons of the A5 hav...

I am in high anticipation of Charbax's response on this one. Good stuff here. Oh how I miss the highly controversial Archos Forums.

Bluetooth accessories supported?

Anyone know if the Bluetooth 2.0 is crippled to only allow communication with the 3G or can you use other Bluetooth accessories also? I have some BT earphones and a BT keyboard I would like to use if possible. Anyone know or dare to venture a guess?

Re: Can't decide between Archos Android and iTouch 64GB.

I also am having a tough time deciding. I own a 2gen iPod touch and like it, but want to give it to my son. I have despised archos in the past for poor quality OS and horrible customer service. I have owned 4 archos devices (380V / 404 / 704 wifi / archos tv) in the past and had problems with all of...

Re: USB port and usb transfer problems

CBers is right. I had the same problem, the shoulder of the usb stick hit the Archos TV housing. On a whim I tried an extension hub and it worked. I was thrilled. Archos definately could have put a little more thought into this. But hey, at least it works unlike the TV portation that was presented i...

Re: Web TV Plug In

Yes, the 05 series (605, 705, etc.) will work as the OS is the same. I just bought it that way and it worked.

Re: TVportation cancelled, offcial word from Archos

I Also bought it expecting to be able to use it for TV portation. Disgraceful says it all. Yet I come back to Archos time and again becase they are innovators in certain areas. Just not the right ones I am finding. One day they will learn. Just don't expect it to be the day (or year) after they star...

Re: It's a bit quiet on these forums this week !!

Nothing to complain about except the fact that my iPod touch blows your digital bricks away. I'll still swing by here every now and then though to chuckle at Charbax duking it out in order to keep those Archos goons happy. Still I find it hard to believe that missionsparta bought another archos. He ...

Re: And the DVR issues begin.....

Just thought I'd stop back by and say hello to my Archos Friends / Foes here.... And within the first 5 minutes of strolling the forums I found this one. I am GLAD I got out with the 704 wifi when I did. It appears that the 704 has evolved backwards with the FIVE. On the other hand I bought an Apple...

Now now, let's keep it on the positive. I'm sure the firware increased the value of your paperweight. I mean how many companies out there update the firmware of their paperweights. That is just one of the many bonuses you get from Archos. Take that Apple! Ha.

In view of the above I am happy without the upgrade. Thanks Archos but no thanks! I'm moving on. Now that the warranty is up, a new firmware is available. That makes sense!?!? What benefit is there to try something now then have it get worse and be stuck with it. Missionsparta you are Archos's most ...

I can see that as a possibility. I am just remembering that something similar happened to my Archos AV380 and it never was the same afterward. I do know for fact that I have done the sme with my 704 as well, but I do not know the ramifications of this. I would like to see some more discussion on thi...

You 2 crack me up. Usually a call to the tech support is a good suggestion, but for those of us who have done this we have become vindictive.

At the current time I would have to agree with you Lalex. If I were to step back 2 years ago though, it was a different story. My Archos AV380 was the talk of the town. Although being a digital brick it was very cutting edge and not as buggy. Someone once called it the Cadillac of PMP's. Back then i...
