Re: News Flash - Archos is an Ipad Alternative

Moved to the Gen 8 forum where it's more appropriate.

Re: Archos 32 root possible?

Not necessarily. The Android Hack on Gen 7 does not require root and was available long before the SDE was released.

And then I'd be happy because Archos would finally have to make a fully Android compatible device to do that! Win/win/win! :D

Re: Users Documentions for the Gen 8

Gen 8 caters to a much wider audience than Gen 7 with the lower price points. That's the reason to go into the $100/150/200 range, after all. Buyers that spend ~$300 for tech toys tend to be a more educated group (with of course larger discretionary income). The $100 price will hit squarely at the ...

Re: Users Documentions for the Gen 8

Given the specs:

Code: Select all

ÔÇó WMV9/VC1 (AP up to 720p 30 [email protected])
...you'd need a Class 10 card to play its full range of HD video. Might be impractical.

Re: A70 vs. Elocity A7

Tegra2>OMAP. That said, it's a slower Tegra2 but still handled what I assume was probably simple profile 1080p nicely. So CPU a bit slower but 1080p. Archos will probably still hold the multi-codec compatibility advantage for now, so if you tend to 'find' your videos on the internet, Archos will sta...

Someone thought they'd found 1.6 from a French forum, but it turned out to be fake, (WHY DO THESE PEOPLE EXIST THAT CREATE FAKES, WHY?!)

But hasn┬┤t the archos / android videoplayer a "frameskip" feature as every standard windows / mac videoplayer to keep the picture and the sound synchronous? Isn┬┤t this a standard feature?

Re: PS3 PSGroove in Archos

If it is either secretly an A5 IMT or an A5 IT, yes. :D

If not, you'll have to either adapt and build it yourself or find some folks who want to do it for you (or for themselves and are willing to share).

I know it's not really related, but every time I read this thread, I keep replaying in my mind the end of Dan Ackroyd's character in the wonderfully dark 'Grosse Point Blanke'.

Re: Back for More Punishment

Yup, my favourite Gen 7 feature. But I just wrote up more detail on that in another thread, so I won't repeat it's strong and weak points again here. Suffice it to say that if you're not on Win Vista or Win 7 (unless Archos changed something), it's great.

Re: SMB Window file share.

Same as in Gen 7. SMB (Samba) works great if you've on Linux, Mac or Win XP. It's a nightmare to configure on Win Vista and Win 7 since M$ messed up their Samba implementation on those two 'to make it more secure'. Better to use uPnP on those machines. But yeah, Samba's the primary way I view media ...

Er, not quite. All you have to do is grab the SDE, unpack the .aos file (or whatever container they use for the FW in Gen 8) it sits in, take a look at the example POC Angstrom Linux build to figure out the FW's structure and how specifically the OS sits in it, then set to finding compatible HW driv...

Re: Users Documentions for the Gen 8

We're talking about USB HDDs formatting, not the internal HDD (for the A70 HDD). Anyway, that may work for techies. It won't fly for regular users. Yup, Archos is going to have higher return rates with their new, less technical audience. Cost of doing business. But in my experience moderating the f...
