Re: White screen

Had this problem with my 704 wifi a couple years ago when the original battery went kaputz. Replaced the battery and the problem went away. Seems if it really can't hold charge it can't muster enough juice to initialize the screen properly. I had some of the anomolous behaviour mentioned in the thre...

Installing skype on Archos 32?

Android noob question. How do I install skype on my 32? I've downloaded the skype.apk file and placed it in the system directory but I'm guessing this was either the wrong way to go or some additional steps are required. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Re: Remote won't control Archos 7 thru DVR Station

Hey Komatsu, Don't know if you solved your issue yet. I had a similar problem with a refurb A7 I bought from Archos. My issue turned out to be a bad remote. Replaced it with one I bought on eBay interestingly enough. If your A5 works fine with the same DVR/remote combo, I'm guessing it's not the iss...

Re: October 22, 2009 is here where is the "9"?

If that were the case, wouldn't it have been pushed back in Europe as well? Not necessarily. It could be a problem specific to North America (e.g. the tuners or licensing for some piece of software/media related to the US/Canadian version). Thanks to all who did the research on this post, I was won...

Re: access all of folders on my Archos 7 by pc

The answer seems to be no. The gen 4 and 5 units had a media server feature which could be switched on under the wifi options menu. I've been unable to find such an option on my A7. Anybody else know if this feature has definitely been dropped for gen 6?

Re: Remote

I'm using a 605 remote on my 7 so I would say yes. Everything works fine except the mouse pointer (i.e. in Opera) which is REALLY sluggish. I don't think the 7 has its own IR receiver though. The remote only works if you have a DVR dock. On the drive space issue I'm not sure. I have a similar proble...

Re: provide a free upgrade to that!

Looks like this only applies to the new 5 running Android out of the box and not the original 5/7 IMT's. Would be really cool on a 7 though.

Re: Archos DVR as monitor for Xbox 360

It can be done. You would need to set the LCD to never shut off under power options and then go to the video recorder. There is an overlay on the 5/7 also but it can be disabled thru the menu once you've entered the video recorder screen. This is true of the 605 also BTW. I'd go for the 7 just for s...

Re: Screen on my Archos 704TFV often goes White playing video

Hey Robtek, I just replied to your battery topic. This convinces me that both your batteries are probably flat as I had the exact same symptom until I changed the battery. Hasn't happened since (going on a year now I think). You might try checking the contacts for dirt/damage if you're sure at least...

Re: Battery problem with 704TV

Hey Robtek, My guess would be that both batteries are toasted. When this started happening with the original battery for my 704Wifi, I had a back up I had bought for a long trip (only used once) and it is still going strong today. About two years is a good run for ONE battery but if you watch alot o...

Re: WEP and the 704 WIFI - g-z characters?

I suppose you guys have sorted this out by now but here's a solution. Type any 13 digit ascii WEP key into this website m Hit translate and it will spit out a 26 digit hex key which you can use in you 704. Have fun typing that monstrosity of a code in on the touch screen. It is an annoyance that Arc...

704 screen anomoly. Should I worry.

Hi all, Have had my 704wifi just over 2 years with some minor glitches (no audio output, unexpected resets) nothing either a soft reset or reboot couldn't handle. Today I powered it on and got an odd grey screen with some white splotches. Numerous reboots got screens with various thin colored lines,...

Re: Video output

You'll need a cable with three outputs, a yellow video and red and white for stereo audio.
