Re: still can't play DRM protected files? why?

Yea that makes sense, but I can do that with just about any video source.... the whole point of the "digital copy" is so I don't have to 'rip' the video to put it on my portable device. The idea is to just transfer the file directly from the digital copy DVD ROM disc to the device. Plus, the digital...

I managed to transfer the content to the Archos 704 WiFi, but it comes up with the protected content warning and won't play... Then, I found in this post afte...

yea right, shoulda known that wouldn't have worked... but it is probably now just a Realtek/Vista/SPDIF in-out issue... I'll have to try the DVR Station SPDIF output hooked up to my audio decoder or something...
but at least VOB files are now seamless....

With this new firmware the player also sends sound through the SPDIF output of the docking station even if the display of the device is set to LCD and not to TV. Previously this did not work. holy crap! and I thought my computer's SPDIF input was messed up or something! Cool, gonna download the fir...

nothing really magical about the 16:9 aspect ratio until relatively recently when HD cameras and the like have started to record in this ratio. The ratio was really developed on a napkin by a couple of engineers who kinda overlapped all the known common existing ratios onto one another and came up w...

I bought my 704 for the same reason, to archive, and preview photos from my DSLR....everything else is icing for me. You usually want to use a card reader anyways, faster and safer. I have gotton all of my readers to work, including the Sony multi CF, MS, and MS Pro reader I have. Also make sure car...

vob files are ones ripped straight from a DVD using commonly available software. they are basically uncompressed images of the original, and take up alot of space, but are guaranteed to look as good as it can get. Yes the plugin works great (for VOB files, it either works or it doesn't). If you use ...

Price in USA store should be around $550 USD.

My store had to order it if I wanted it. I ended...

Re: Satellite radio

I can confirm that the 704 recognizes a Sirius Stiletto 100 Portable Satellite Radio. The unit has built in MP3 player, but you still can't transfer audio that was recorded via the Satellite feed to the 704. wonder what format the Stiletto is saving the audio files in....maybe some proprietary form...

there may be a setting for digital output vs. analog audio output... currently, you want analog output selected...not SPDIF (Sony Phillips Digital Interface)

not sure specifically whats wrong, but in any case, you can probably just get a small card reader and hook it to the dongle for fast transfers... I bought my Archos as an in the field photo archive and preview tool...but of course it does so much more ;)

I have only played with the camera for a few brief minutes, but the video quality looked very poor, and washed out. I have only tried indoor incandecent, and indoor flourecent, but hopefully soon I can report back on outdoor video. Not impressed so far.
