Can not be done and still maintain full functionality. Go to the development board for more info.

Soooo, the big A MIGHT release the super duper ultra Turbo 1.5 ghz with a gig of ram some time in February? That will be just in time for them to start going head to head with some quad core devices. As I have previously stated, Archos over promises, under delivers, and provides a finished product m...

Re: What's your overall opinion of the Archos 5 Internet Tab

I bought mine in March 09, and never regreted the purchase. Since that time I made several attempts to improve (7IT, 7o, 101, Acer A100, all have been sold) and now I have an Acer A500. I still have my A5 and carry it with me when I don't want to lug a 10inch tablet around. If it broke I would proba...

Re: Fairwell Archos, you have been great to me.

In my previous post dated September 5, I had returned the Acer and decided to wait for the G9. After reading about more delays, problems with the screen, 1/2 gig of ram, etc, I have made my final decision. I ordered a refirbed Acer A500 10.1 from Best Buy. It will be here on 10-3. For $299 and with ...

Re: Fairwell Archos, you have been great to me.

The Acer has already been returned. Really?! You returned it rather than installing another video player app (many of which are free)? No matter what tablet you buy there will always be formats/codecs that aren't supported by the stock player. Even the Archos stock player won't play AC3 audio or MP...

Re: Fairwell Archos, you have been great to me.

I too, have been considering jumping ship from Archos. In fact, today I bought an Acer Iconia 7". Despite the better screen, processor,ram, etc it would not play the audio on my current videos. Before you ask, I don' t know the recording format without going back to look. I just know they did not ha...

Re: Upgrade from Archos 5 160gb ???

I own both. I would stick with th 5 and wait for the G9. My 7o is ok but is not without freezing / reboot issues. True, the G9 will cost more but it will be current tech and you will be less likely to want to hurl it into a wall. I would also recommend finding a dvr station for the 5. It extends fun...

Re: TI & Ice Cream Sandwich

I agree that speculation can be a good thing. In fact, it drives development. I have never seen you go off the deep end but others sometimes take speculation as a promise or fact. I was just voicing some pre-emptive concerns to thehopeless dreamers who may expect Gen 9 to do everything including giv...

Re: TI & Ice Cream Sandwich

Ok everybody just stop it before this gets ugly. I have been watching speculation about new products since the A5A days. What happens is people get their hopes up about speculation that they take as fact. Then we get stuck with a bunch of angry posts on the board about how Archos lied. When Archos s...

US- A5 Internet tablet (16gb) with Dvr station $200,

As the title says..... I also have the box and original docs. It works perfectly. It has always had a screen protector. I will also include a well worn case. I also have a 8 gb 7o with case, also in good condition, $175. I am selling both in anticipation of theG9 release. I used the 5 with dvr stati...

Re: Lol Its happening again :)

The problem that most people have with Archos comes from making them do more than they came with. Used as sold, they do pretty well. Some of their quirks are Android based rather than device based. My 7o is not rooted but does have the market and you tube hacks. My many thanks go out to the hackers ...

Re: Official Gen 9 announcement June 23

If gen 8 experiences mean anything..... we will have our announcement but no product before Christmas. Even then we we have limited supply. This pattern is supported by the Arnova proclimation for May. It will happen just do not count on their dates. In the mean time I will continue to enjoy my 7-0.

Re: A70 IT: will it play movies recorded with A5 IT DVR ?

I am able to record dvds to my sd card on the 5 and move that card to my 70 for playback. I can not speak for the experiences of others.

Re: A70 IT: will it play movies recorded with A5 IT DVR ?

I have the a5a and the 70. I do record on my 5 on the sd card and play video on my 70 and my Optimus V phone. I had a 7 HT and could not play those recordings. I hope this info helps.

If you had to give up one, Gen 7 or 8

Ihave a 16 gb A5A and a couple of gen 8 s (70 and 101). I was thinking. If they were all lost, broken, or stolen, which would I replace first? I' m not sure but I think I would buy a new 5. If you have both and had to choose, what would you do?

Re: A5A says "recording stopped"

It was the SD card. After 3 reformats and installing different versions of the firmware, I swapped out the SD card and it worked. This was a real stumper that had everyone lost I suppose. Anyway, it works...I'm happy. Moving on.

A5A says "recording stopped"

I posted earlier with no response. Having been on this board for over a year I figured I did not provide enough info to get a response. My 5IT sits in the dvr station and mirrors the tv feed. When I press or schedule record I get the RECORDING STOPPED message. I was at a loss so I reformatted and it...
