Re: Archos 7 Locks up Opera when surfing to Newegg.com

Hi All: Just took delivery of a new Archos 7. I intend to provide my initial impressions after I have played with it some more. One curiosity though, I am having issues with Opera locking up anytime I try to surf to the NewEgg.com website. I am sure there are a lot of techies here other than myself...

Re: Encoding Issues

Okay, I think I've finally got it. I just watched a 1 hour 45 minute and (2) 45 minute episodes with no stalling. There seems to be a pretty big difference between the UI on the MAC and PC versions of Handbrake. I had to select "None" and then went to "Strict" to purge the default 320x.... that Han...

Re: Another angle for download movies and videos

I read a lot of people having probs trying to watch downloaded videos on their A7's etc.. I must have lucked in that all my videos are of the right type and codec as I haven't yet encountered a video that doesn't work on my A7.. That's not luck, it's because YouTube detects your player's version, a...

Re: Battery Life :D

Yes, here too. Did you "condition" the battery? FWIW: To condition the battery for max capacity, play a video with "repeat" turned on so it won't go to sleep, and run the battery empty and recharge 3 times, and never leave it plugged in all the time. Is this something you would have had to do from ...

Re: A 7 or a 5 ? what to buy?

Thanks for the replies. Plumped for the 7, but only the 160gig - boss wouldn't let me spend more (she wants new bathrooms) Don't think I'll have a problem with the space - the 40gig has never been full. Nearet I've ever got was about 35gig. Can't wait till Friday now when the new toy arrives ! 160G...

Re: A 7 or a 5 ? what to buy?

Afternoon all. Been lurking the 605 forums for about 6 months now, so thought it was time to sign up as I'm planning an upgrade. Had my 605wifi for a while now and my son is having that (for free, of course). Just not sure whether to buy the 7 or the 5. I can get the 250gig 5 or 160gig 7 for about ...

WMV11 plays fine on the Archos 5. I've done one Blu-ray rip and it was fine. Picture quality was pretty good but I haven't yet gotten it fine tuned. I am having problems with rips and the 4gb file size limit. I tried xilisoft and it's not worked very well when I've had to request a file split to wo...

Re: Noooooooooo!

Hey, I just got my A5 fixed through RMA, its costing me $135. This is the price with return shipping. Again, its the A5, so since its a larger screen, I would assume like just short of $200. Just a guess. ---Jaeger Hmm gonna have to call them as STILL haven't heard back from them.. Mind you the new...

Double Life Batteries

Gotta like that.. I have two double life batteries I purchased for my A7s because of how much I use them on the road mostly for portfolio work and web communications while away from home. Though the typical 4 to 5 hours of video play time on the standard battery was sufficient for most cases, the do...

These would be great for voip if they had a mic.
Wireless VOIP on the A7? Heck, wireless VOIP with a laptop sucks at best, so I wouldn't bet much for the A7 being good at it.

Re: Encoding Issues

I wouldn't fault the unit as it may just be the way Handbrake handles the files, I remember not liking it too much.. however, I don't have too many issues when doing up my DVDs to AVi with my PCs.. no issues wherever watching videos etc on the A7 I thought about 1500kpbs being too much, but the DVD ...
