Re: Question For TVersity Pro Users

Have you tried that yet? If you're going to use a paid program like that I'd recommend PlayOn over TVersity. You get a 14 day free trial of it too. I used it before and it worked really well streaming sites such as Hulu to my Archos. Plus, I don't remember having to use a particular browser.

Re: Anyone ever use Archos Support?

Just a quick side note. The Archos headphones have one earbud cord longer than the other because they are meant to be worn behind the head. It's a not-uncommon design which is supposed to have less slippage and keep the cord out of sight. And yes, they are very cheap, of very poor quality and like ...

Re: Anyone ever use Archos Support?

I've not had much trouble with email responses. They seem to always reply within a day or two at the most. Except for when I emailed them to get a tracking number for my replacement Archos. They emailed to me 17 days after I requested it. I had received my Archos 2 weeks before that. :lol: As for th...

Re: Archos A5A Featured on Tigerdirect / ComputerTV

One of the few completely positive reviews Archos has had, even though he does give some misleading information. He could give Charbax a run for his money with his enthusiasm for this device! :lol:

Re: Question about unlocked phones

Where I live we can basically choose from GSM carriers at&t and T-Mobile and between CDMA carriers Sprint and Verizon along with a couple of "regional" CDMA carriers. I have always been on one of the regional carriers so I've never had a SIM card phone. Tonight I just switched to Sprint even though ...

Question about unlocked phones

There isn't really a forum specifically for cell phones in here but I got some help in this forum before about cell phones so here is another...I've been reading up a bit on unlocked cell phones and the carriers that they can be used with. My main question is, if I bought an unlocked phone would I j...

Re: Motorola Droid vs. Archos 5IT

Just my 2 cents on what I've heard about the Droid. I've been doing quite a bit of research and reading many reviews on phones like this recently since I'm in the market for a phone that "does it all." I read several reviews from owners of the Droid who said it was way over-rated and didn't live up ...

Re: Cannot register Archos online

Yea it sounds like you bought it used or refurbished and the previous owner had it registered already. Happened to me. I just called customer service and they fixed it for me.

Re: Archos 5 IMT vs IT -- for upgrade decision

The A5 is already poised for replacement with a 1GHz or faster CPU offering, so you are close to considering a device 3 generations old from the start. Just my thoughts. Ken[/color] Could you expand on that? Are you talking about a new Archos device that will have that or one from a different compa...

Re: Nintendo DS Lite case fits A5 IMT perfectly

@Stevo: I remember someone posting this same tip before. So it was probably your post I read. I've thought about using a GPS case or a portable hard drive case also if it came down to it. I have a case for my portable hard drive and the archos fits perfectly in it. To me, cases for items like these ...

Viewing difference between 800x480 and 320 x 480?

I love the picture on my Archos thanks to the 800x480 resolution. That's one of my favorite features about it. I need a new phone but the closest thing to having all the features I want that is available around here has 320x480 resolution. The screen is 3.2 inches with an AMOLED display. Anyone have...

It's not about "torrents and P2P." You obviously missed the point of the comments... and do not live in the U.S. You got that right, I dont live in U.S. Sorry :| No need to apologize, mate. If anything we (the U.S.A.) should be apologizing to everyone else for being so strict on "file sharing laws"...

I guess I should clarify: The refurb they sent me had a matte screen when my original had a glossy screen. Big disappointment! :(

Re: Nokia N900 used as just a media device?

I don't remember the exact video formats supported by the N900 without looking it up but I'm thinking it was pretty good, at least for my purposes. Heck, I'm happy with a good .avi video and that's it :p ! I do know the resolution is the same as Archos, 800x480. So that is a big plus for me too.
