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

Yes, I agree but the original poster described himself as a Financial (stock market) Consultant, who often recommended investments, one must therefore presume it is a business. In any case, as you say this is hardly the place to discuss the finer points of UK financial law, it made a change tho from...

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

As far as I recall any financial advice given either professionally or freely (ie chatting over the garden fence) is covered by the FSA. Discussion is one thing, recommendations are another. Financial Services And Markets Act 2000. Part II Regulated And Prohibited Activities 19 The general prohibiti...

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

Just a reminder to say that offering financial advice in the uk without authority from the FSA is a criminal offence, and no I am NOT joking.

Re: more arhcos problems

I know this is a bit repetitive but reload the OS software, Archos always seem to recommend you do this ( for everything it seems! Strangely it does seem to work for most problems) when there are OS faults. See the manual for instructions. Do it via the "white screen" rather than settings/...

Re: Help Archos 605 works only after resetting each time

It could well be a software corruption, try reloading the operating software. If you do this via the "white screen" rather than in the repairs settings menu it will completely wipe the drive and reload a new OS. See the manual for full instructions. I did this when my 705 played up and I k...

Re: TVportation plugin update

I must admit that I would have expected some sort of announcement on the portation by now, its still showing as coming soon on the website. If they are not going to release it soon they should say so.

Re: Screen Protector

For UK owners I used these people for my 705, they will customise the protector. The one I bought was a non sticky one and it did take about a week to finally settle onto the screen but in the end it was Ok so you may need some patience.

I agree with matchbox my 705 acts in the same way. Must be an Archos thing.

Re: Crash - System recovery!

click on the link in my 1st post and select 705wifi in the drop down box then pick the latest firmware 2.1.04 (file ends in .aos) Sounds as if the screen is not working correctly, if you do have to send it back to Archos then I think the turnaround time is fairly good, have a search on the forums fo...

Re: Widgets not working

Could be that the arc lib hasn't updated and therefore the archos cant see the wiget files. Do a manual arclib update, if that doesn't work then do a clear temp files and cache.

Re: Crash - System recovery!

Don't despair just yet it may be recoverable. It sounds as if you have got a software corruption. I had a similar problem, I kept getting the white recovery screen and a 102 error. What I did was to download the firmware from the Archos website to the pc. Boot up the archos into the white screen and...

Re: Support and updates.

Now the new models are out I think you can forget updates on gen 5's Until maybe the tv portation comes out if it ever does, that will be the last I fear.
