Re: Finally a 7 inches Icecream - Availabe from Arnova...

Just got one of these for my wife, getting to grips with Icecream (I'm still on 2.2 on my 101), but impressions so far are pretty good. The only thing I haven't been able to set is the time zone, I'm in the UK but it thinks I'm in Europe and therefore the time is +1hr. How about having it's own sub ...

MP4 sound sync issues

I use Get I Player to download BBC I Player programs so I can play them on my Archos 101, however while the native files play the sound slowly goes out of sync with the video and after 30 mins or so the sound is a few seconds behind the video, I can cure this by changing them to AVI files and then D...

Re: Have Archos given up on the DVR station? and why have t

I know how you feel, I moved up from an AV560 to a Gen 8 10.1 and transferring TV shows over using DVDs is a big pain. I think Archos are missing a trick here having a USB TV adaptor and app that would work like a DVR would be a major selling point. If you live in the UK Get I Player http://www.infr...

Re: G9 Online Merchants & Resellers...

Available for pre-order from HMV in UK, they also had a space reserved for them in the store I visited at the weekend. 300 UK£ but they didn't say what model.

If they are getting in all HMV stores this will be quite some exposure, I never saw a Gen 8 101 in any UK high street store

Re: Firmware 2.4.19 released - report bugs here

Update went smooth, no noticeable problems so far. My headset (Seinhiesser CX300's) works fine. I still have problem with some video files I've encoded on my PC (MPEG4's in DivX) in that if I use the slider to move forward in the video the picture freezes but sound continues, but this maybe an issue...

Re: A101 keeps rebooting

Mine is doing the same and keeps doing it until either battery is flat or you hold the power button down and do a hard reset, I e-mailed Archos about it over 2 weeks ago but no response. Are they stopping A101 support now I wonder, if there's no update which fixes this my next tablet will not be an ...

Power Cycling

Who else has got problems with their unit randomly getting stuck in a shutdown-startup loop until the battery is flat after installing the latest software.

Has anybody got a solution for this.

Blackberry Playbook

Just had a play with a Blackberry Playbook in Best Buy, screen looks very good, there is some lag when rotating the screen. But it wasn't obvious how you exited applications, you seemed to have to shrink them, but this was a bit hit and miss, sometimes they would shrink down other times they would s...

Re: My 101 is not playing compatible videos

I have no problems playing ripped movies and TV programmes on my 16GB A101 in mp4, avi or divx formats, but I have encoded them so they are typically less than 1GB (640 x 360 format), but have no problems playing files which are 1 to 2 hours long. I could understand if files obtained through I Tunes...

Just an update, after a couple of times recharging it seems to have settled down. Battery life seems as good as before and charging seems fine as well.

Re: DC-IN Port - prong broke off

Not sure where you live, but it could be worth e-mailing Archos and getting it RMA'd. I live in UK and a few years ago I dropped my AV560 and the hard disc stopped working, even though it was out of warrenty I contacted Archos to see about repair, they gave me a RMA number, picked it up by courier, ...

Re: ARCHOS ARNOVA 10

Could this be a special that Archos have done for specific outlets, they did this before, my AV560 (60GB drive) was only available from Dixons/Currys in UK and never listed on the Archos website. Its resonably common in UK to only get some models in certain store chains, it stops the direct price co...
