Re: blue ray ripper regularly 50 bucks free today only

I did not remove the linkbucks link because it was a revenue generation link ... i removed it because links like that look like spam to general users... secondly such redirection services can often have advertisement pages that have viruses etc.

Vga is actually the same as component internally (RGB), both are analog connections.

Re: Finally the best solution for Archos 5IT to go online

Ickster .. no carrier "allows" tethering without an extra fee. But that doesn't mean you cannot do it. I have been using tethering with At&t since December 09 and it works very well. You might have to remove the DUN lock that metropcs has put on your device. A simple google search gave me this http:...

Re: Best way to connect dvr station to lcd vga monitor?

Well a cheap solution would be to get a component to VGA adapter or cable.... but you will only get 480p ... The HDMI to VGA cables you see on ebay .. do not work... do not buy them! I have a HDMI/DVI to VGA/Component converter that i used to feed video from hdmi devices to my vga/component projecto...

Re: Black Screen of Death... dead

do what dm8tbr says .. let it charge for 24 hrs ... if it doesn't wake up after that return it.

This can happen if the battery was low and you had put it in standby (screen off, system on, green light on) and some process was preventing it from shutting down.

Re: Will DVR or HDMI Mini Dock Gen7 be compatible with Gen 8

There is no information available regarding that.
But there is a very high chance that the accessories will be compatible.
I dont see why Archos will release the HDMI dock now if it wasn't compatible with Gen8 .. since the Gen8 is just 3 months away.

Is the HDMI Dock too expensive?

Hey .. so the HDMI dock has been released in the US for $69.99 + $6 (ground shipping) = $75.99 I think it is too expensive. The DVR station is selling for $103 at Amazon with FS (and you can find refurb ones for under $65) and it does much more than the HDMI dock. - It includes the HD pluggin - It h...
