Though I'm in India, don't ask me where I could get one... I have no idea.

Naturally, I had to get the punchline wrong!

Seriously though... it's a mystery to me. Why have two different audio applications (in the FW too) if they do the same thing?

"Music" and "Audio Player"

Anybody could clue me in on what the differences are between "Music" and "Audio Player" applications on the A7HT? What is the purpose of including two different applications doing the same thing? Do they handle different formats? Are the sound qualities different? My life will be unfulfilled if I do...

Is there any trick to making YouTube work in Skyfire on the A7HT? I get "Media Error: -1 : 0" every time.

And iVideo gives this helpful popup... "Cannot play video" - "The video file cannot be played"

Re: Streaming media

ES File Explorer is one, providing your media which it understands. Since Android allows multiple Apps to register for certain requests, video playback in Android from a uPnP server will bring up a dialog which allows you to select a video app and select a default app. I almost never select a defau...

Neither one can play these files. I'm stuck or I'm just doing something
wrong in my setup.
That's exactly the way it doesn't work for me. That's the way it is designed not to work

So, you're doing nothing wrong.

Does the general 7" screen protector fit 7HT? How about that for 7" EeePC 700? Are they the same size?
Why bother at all... this device is going to have a very short life. The irritating touchscreen will be even more unusable with a screen protector.

Re: WTF Archos 7 HT CPU is only 200MHz ?

It just lets the user select different min/max presets - none overclocked. I have no desire to risk my Archos tablets with overclocking. Yes, manufacturers are perfectly happy with the overclocking business as it reduces the life (not only the battery life) of the processor, the entire system even....

Re: SD card mount automacitcally?

I don't understand what's going on for you. When I attach my 7HT to my WinVista Box it sees both the Internal Memory (should be called Storage) and the microSDHC card as two drives and I can read and write to both. Aaaaah... finally got it working... The answer was in "...as two drives..." I have t...

Hallo all you experts... please advice me on: 1) How to mount the SDHC as read-write (instead of as read-only). 2) How to use the USB cable (supplied) to copy media onto the SDHC. It's frustrating, having plonked the money on a 8GB SanDisk Class 2 card, and lacking a card reader to connect the card ...
