I Hope so

Do the Archos guys read this forum? You would think it would be in their best interest.

Fingers crossed.

720p my but!!

One of the major reasons I bought the TV+ was because it has HDMI HD connection, and in all of the forums and reviews, it is supposed to be 720p. Imagine my annoyance when I plugged in the HDMI cable and went to switch the settings to use it, and the only 2 HD options I have are 480p or 576p!!!!! Wh...

I already have

I already have set up ad hoc on my laptop... it is the TV+ that doesn't seem to allow Ad Hoc connections. When I go into the Network settings, it has Ethernet or Wifi setup, but when I set up either and use a manual IP address, which is the same subnet as the laptop, it just doesn't want to connect ...

Ad Hoc Network

Guys, My router for internet connetion is on the other side of the house. While My laptop connects fine, my Archos TV in the TV case, and surrounded by walls, with one open door, struggles to connect to it. It is actually better than my 605 or 705 on the DVR station, but it still struggles. ANyway, ...

I have one!

Hi, I just got mine on Friday! I ordered it in the middle of November though... grumble. It is awesome! The funny thing is the WiFi is better than my son's 605. It doesn't support the Games Packs available for Gen 5 devices, but then when you have a Wii and a PS3, who needs Sudoku, and Texas Holdem?...

Goggles: Regardles of the post you have quoted, I have been assured that the video DOES NOT work through the 605. It only works through the DVR with the 605. But I now have both 605 and DVR and have not seen a headphone jack in the DVR. I will see if Ican test the video glasses this week as my mate ...

Grrr...

And one other really annoying thing... when you are synching, or copying files from your laptop, PC or whatever to the device or vice versa, the battery loses charge during the process!! This is very silly in my opinion. You have to wait for the process to finish, and then re-plug the USB and hit "C...

605

Right, just because I'm stupid like that, i couldn't help but open up the 605 I ordered for my son for Christmas! I have been waiting for my 705 for over a month now, and it still hasn't arrived (I actually orderd 2 of them). The idea is I am buying my son another one, so don't think I'm THAT mean!!...

Interesting...

I asked the question of the 605 forum, filled with 605 owneres, and they tried it to see. 2 replies so far was that it doesn't work with Video output unless you have the DVR or Mini dock. A message pops up on the screen of the 605 when you plug a video cable into the 3.5 Headphone Jack saying "you c...

Video from headphone Jack socket

I wonder if anyone with a 605 can help me with a test? It was widely wccepted on the 705 forum that one of the main differences between the 605 and the 705 was that the 705's headphone Jack supports Video AND Audio, but that the 605 doesn't. At least that's what the specs suggest. However, on the 70...

Wow, you would think they would list something like that on the tech specs.

I can confirm some...

WIth the ezVision sspecs from iwantoneofthose.com you simply plug the cable into the headphone jack. This cable goes to a little grey box which is the "converter" for the specs and outputs the appripriate signal for the specs. All you need do though is plug it into the headphone jack. However, there...

A bit weak showing...

I am glad the widgets have finally arrived, but every one of these things would've taken me about a day to develop in C++, and I'm not even a programmer!

Surely they could come up with a few more interesting widgets...

Just out of interst, because I haven't been watching, are the games new as well?

You're right about the supplied 605 USB cable. If you try to use it and watch the 605 at the same time it will not sit nice. :evil: Nice bit of info. Though we did watch the sample movies on the device while it was plugged into the USb cable, and it looked okay. No glitching or anything. So I am cu...

Point #7

I found another difference. The Gen 5 helmet cam (which is supposed to be an improved version over Gen 4) is NOT compatible with the 705. It is compatible with the 605 and other devices, however. Why, I am not sure. However, the Gen 4 cam, which was made compatible for the 704 IS compatible with the...

I thought I saw some "how to" stuff on adding DVD to the device with the plug-in. But I can't seem to find it now... maybe it was for the 605? Anyway, unny, when I googled: "How To VOB Achos 705" This thread came up!! ;) I use the CuCuSoft Ultimate conversion softare to convert DVDs and Videos to VO...

Great Replies!!

Thanks guys. Yeah that video thru te headphone jack was one I only noticed the other day, as originally when my mate and I at work decided to go for the 705, we pried out the TechSpecs, and noted the differences. This stipulation was not on teh TechSpecs, so it wasn't a feature I had considered. How...
