Re: Feature requests

we still need some form of external controller for the A5A. Bluetooth is all well and good, but it drains the battery loads, and causes a sound delay.

The wiimote is a good option, but again uses bluetooth. Why can't we have a plug in controller for play/pause and also gaming?

Re: Volume Booster

There was a volume hack, but I think one of the recent firmware upgrades has disabled it?

Re: 1000 File Listing Limit

Wow, thats a really strange way of storing music!

I don't know of any other file managers that will cope better, but why would you not store music in artist / album folders? Once in the AMC database its all searchable anyway...

Spirit Level

Has anyone tried the "Bubble" app?
Demo video is here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1-EnyEaTBc

I installed it earlier, and it loads, but I get no movement in my bubble! Does the A5IT not have the necessary motion sensor hardware for this?

Cheers!

Re: Firmware 1.7.95 released - Report Bugs Here

Another "Deep Sleep" failure.

I spotted this morning the change from 1.7.93 to 1.7.95, so I updated.

This time I'd left it in "Deep Sleep" and tried to wake it to transfer some files from PC. System Process is not responding. Oh dear, another hard reset...

Re: Firmware 1.7.95 released - Report Bugs Here

ok, my first attempt as "deep sleep": I used my archos in the car driving home from work last night, and put it to "deep sleep" when I got home. Switched it on this morning, and tried to connect it to my bluetooth headphones. No joy. The Bluetooth settings page wouldn't respond, and the device locke...

Using an A5IT in a car

I was just wondering what people use to control their A5IT in the car for listening to music? With my old Archos I used the wired remote, but now I'm using a bluetooth headset with remote buttons plugged into the AUX input of the car stereo. It works OK I guess, but the volume is way lower than thro...

Change settings for system sounds?

Is it possible to turn off some or all of the sounds android makes, like the boot-up and shutdown sounds? It wouldn't be a problem, but if I'm listening in bed at night with bluetooth headphones, when I turn off, the bluetooth disconnects, and the shutdown sound comes through the speaker and wakes m...

Re: Storing 720p Archos

sorry, but the archos disk format is EXT3, which will accept the large files. Unless you have converted it to FAT32.

Re: Feature requests

my wishlist:

Selectable list of sound output devices (speaker, headphones, bluetooth) in Settings;

Hardware play / pause buttons like the FM Remote had. Bluetooth headphones can provide this, but the sound quality isn't as good as a direct connection. :(

Re: Can you choose the audio output?

No body got any ideas on this then? The reason I'm asking, is that the volume output through bluetooth headset is a bit low, especially in the car connected to the AUX input of my stereo. The normal headphone output is great (and also better quality than bluetooth) but its handy to have the bluetoot...

Can you choose the audio output?

just wondering if its possible to select which output to use for audio, eg, headphones, bluetooth, internal speaker? Or is it all auto selected for you?

Thanks!

Re: Bluetooth headphones - different take ?

I reckon that the sound is pretty fine Hi kevpuk, thanks for this recommendation. I was looking for headphones with remote buttons, as the archos remote is unsupported. I tried a cheapy "BCK08" from ebay first, and although it paired with my laptop, I couldn't get it to work with the Archos. So, I ...
