Re: DVR station Remote broken - any Android remote apps?

I checked in the Google Play store, but found nothing compatible with that old of an Archos product. Replacement remotes are available on ebay for 10 bucks with free shipping, I believe.

Re: My Archos 5 just died (Problem Solved)

I am on my 3rd Archos 5 in about 5 years after the last two just went wrong. The second will not do anything and the 1st I sent for repair would have cost £70 to even be looked at. Now this one will just turn off if not plugged in to a charger. I love the machines, but they just seem so unreliable....

Re: Settings For Full Screen File Conversion ?

Even if you could transcode letterboxed/widescreen files to fill the entire screen without cutting info off the ends, the results would appear like crap because everything would be stretched unnaturally thin and tall.

Re: Plugins for 605 30gb wifi

To the best of MY knowledge, there is no way to get the plug-ins for the 605 anywhere anymore. There used to be a guy on this forum that used to sell them "aftermarket" for really good prices (as well as a couple folks on ebay), but he has been unable to get them for quite some time now, unfortunate...

Re: Internet Access Problems

Thanks for your advice. I have been looking at tablets as I have never been able to get the 605 on line. Maybe go down that route then :? Or you could just turn off the encryption on your network for a couple minutes and then connect your 605 just to see how slow it is, and if it is worth the effor...

Re: Internet Access Problems

Wish I could help, but I'm not using WPA2 encryption.

To be honest, the 605 is so glacially slow when used for
internet access that I wouldn't even bother. Seriously.

Re: Does anyone still sell the Podcast plugin?

I've got the same problem. After 5 years of successful use (playing mainly Divx and Xvid files), I'm finding that more and more files are in the wrong format for my Archos (mp4/h264) and I need this plugin to play them. Any ideas of how I can play these files now? Thanks, Daz The plug-ins for the 5...

Re: Anyone tried a 750Gb drive in an Archos 5?

Anyone got a list of 1TiB drives that will fit? Is there someone who fits them? Any 1TB drives that are 2.5" thick and use a SATA connector will very likely fit in there (though I cannot say if it will work, I haven't tried it). I think you mean 0.37" (9.5mm) thick. 2.5" is the width. Just wanted t...

Re: Replacing Battery on Archos 5

Hi guys, is it the same for the 500gb model as the 250gb? I've been looking around and people only seem to find the teardown for the 250gb models and lower, as well as no further information on the screen or battery of the 500gb model, unless it's the same as the 250gb. Please let me know, thanks! ...

Re: rpb flash player

Good luck. Most videos on you tube require either flash 9 or flash 10, or html5. The Archos 5 IMT runs a version of flash called flash lite. Flash lite is a bastardized version of flash 9, and won't play the vids on you tube anymore. There is no flash upgrade available for the Archos 5 IMT.
