Re: Chrome V8 and Google Gears

How do you know Opera isn't working hard with Archos to make the Opera browser work smoothly on Archos devices? Every time Archos releases a new product, Opera is quick at being proud in all types of press releases about their work in making it work. Because every time I've seen someone asking a qu...

Re: Chrome V8 and Google Gears

Chrome doesn't exist for embedded devices. Though Google are now going to work on making Chrome features work on embedded devices. How would they set about doing this, if Chrome doesn't exist for embedded devices? The browser we see on Archos players is limited by Opera's SDK which, as I understand...

Re: BEST 605 PRICES

Check out m !!! There's a veeeeeerrrrry good deal, but it's just for one day! Do you know if it comes complete with all the plug-ins for this price, or do you still have to pay Archos directly for a key to unlock the web browser, and the additional video formats which it supports? I already have a ...

I feel exactly the same. I've said it before but I feel like we're all beta testers, but with no adequate way of feeding back all the problems, or feeling that they are being tackled. It's something they should seriously look at, or you're right - they won't survive. Someone will just steal all of t...

I'm lead to believe that these problems have been around for a while, and that many people have complained. So why hasn't Archos done anything? If they know about it and still have not done anything, then what does that show about the company? It shows that they are astute enough to balance the cos...

Re: New battery lasts one hour

Battery life on my 605 is appalling, but not that appalling. It sounds faulty to me. I don't get more than a couple of hours out of mine when I play video. I just use it around the house now, and keep it docked all the time I'm not using it, but most of the time I use it docked anyway. I like the co...

Someone with opera loaded should check into www.thinkfree.com or google Docs to see if the online editors that support word documents can run on the Archos. I haven't tried it yet using Opera on my 605, but ThinkFree has an online tool to convert doc & xls files to HTML. m It worked pretty quic...

Re: 2nd DVR station dead in 3-month period

I'm on my second DVR station after only 3 months. Now the second one is dead. They seem to very sensitive to static. Occassionally when I got to dock my 605 I feel a static discharge. I believe that after a while it eventually blows the unit. I don't get shocked touching anything else in the room o...

Re: No Problems except the manual

I have not had any problems except with the owner's manual. It does not provide much info on how to use the device. As always, update to the latest firmware to improve any problems. Neuros Technology makes a similar unit but that doesn't have a clock or IR Blaster. I found mine for $65 US on sale I...

Re Alternative to DVR Dock

Sounds just the job. I've just read a couple of mixed reviews on Amazon. Something about interference when playing back on some devices, and also something about widescreen recordings getting stretched. Have you experienced any problems using it? I'm thinking of getting one, my DVR's gone on the fri...

Re: Paint Application

Hey! I got bored today so I decided that I was going to make a flash application for my 605. It's a basic paint program (very, very basic) but still pretty cool. Download Here! (Right Click, Save Link As...) Just save it anywhere on your Archos, then go to Files, and open it! It has several colors ...

So far so good. My clock always forgot what time it was no matter how many ways I tried to change the settings.

Re: Lifetime of the Lithium-Ion Battery

or fork out a hefty fee to have it professionally replaced by Archos. Anyone ever get a chance to find out how much Archos charges for "official" battery replacement? I sure hope they don't pull an Apple and over-charge. Might as well buy a new device if the battery replacement charge is ...
