Playback is skipping frames?

Hey, Against my better judgement I picked up an Archos 43 Vision from Future Shop (Canada) yesterday. I figured that if I didn't like it I could return it; Future Shop gives 30 days. It was supposed to replace the old bulkier 605 Wifi 80Gb I have. The unit looks nice, shiny, touchscreen is nice and ...

Re: This Is Where Archos Got Their 43 Vision

I have to disagree, yes from outside the units look very similar, however the Archos' LCD screen is much better than the one in the other unit. Also the touchscreen is more precise on the Archos. I should know; I've had the local version of the Prolynks (It's called MP4i here). Same specs with FM, d...

Re: GFT3 (Stable v1.0) for archos605 wifi (Software Jailbrea

One word that sums up what you guys did: Wow. I've been feeling ripped off since the day after I purchased this device because I had (wrongly) assumed it would play anything I'd throw at it, and because it said "Wi-Fi" on the name, I had imagined it could browse the web. Now it can. Thank you. Next ...

No.

At least (unrelatedly) I corrected my Wifi connection problem.

Re: Unable to connect to my wireless network

OK so no, the issue was not my DHCP server, in fact it is that the Archos coders were too lazy to implement a working hex converter in their crap software, so that when it connects to the router, it does so in hex even though you specify ASCII (for humans to better understand). In other words, let's...

Re: Unable to connect to my wireless network

Ah, I hadn't noticed your sig, sorry. I still don't see why mine will not connect. It sees the network properly. I wonder if it's a DHCP issue. I'll look into that and keep you posted. LOL at the bump, I know, last time I posted it wasn't important for me to have wifi access, now though I'd love to ...

Re: i give you: moldy cheese

Argh, I purchased my unit back in April - 605 Wifi 80gb - with already 1.8.07 on it, I downgraded to 1.8.03d but it will not let me go backwards beyond that. It's like being that astronaut on the first lunar mission that had to stay in orbit while his buddies all went down to the moon... Still, KUDO...

Re: Unable to connect to my wireless network

itendo; that will only be limited by your hardware, i.e. your router. Not sure what kind of security the Archos supports. I've not tried to connect it again in ages.

Re: Unable to connect to my wireless network

WEP shared key (ASCII), 128 bit. If I switch to public key it connects. In all honesty, WiFi isn't that important to me right now. I bought the unit primarily to use on my 3.5 hour daily commute, round trip to, and from work.

Re: Unable to connect to my wireless network

Well I managed to connect it; By disabling the security on my wireless network and this, is unacceptable. I will not be using the WiFi feature on this device. In a way, considering it has WiFi as part of the name I feel cheated. I'm running firmware 1.8.05 which it came with, I don't want to upgrade...

Unable to connect to my wireless network

I'm using a D-Link wireless router with WEP enabled, shared key, key 1, 13 character ASCII key and DHCP enabled. I've configured the Archos 605 WiFi with shared key, 128bit password, the correct one, and it fails to connect. Is there something I'm missing? It correctly identifies the security as WEP...

Re: Just wanna play back .MKV files C'mon Archos

I've just gotten the 605 WiFi today; It's on a one day special from Future Shop (Canada) marked down to 179.99 and since I had a gift card for my birthday I was saving for something good I took the Archos plunge. I've been streamin MKV files to my PS3 using TVersity but first, I've been needing to c...
