Re: Angry Birds Android Beta

Full screen activated from notification bar was all it needed. It works just fine now. It's brilliant and looks really good on the Archos.

Many thanks.

Re: Firmware Version 2.0.38/1.9.26 released - reports bugs h

and on the subject of the market hack.... I have been able to install it without any problems and the Google apps all work well, except the Market app. I can view the list of apps available (although Angry Birds isn't there), but when I select one to download I just see the message "starting downloa...

Re: Firmware Version 2.0.38/1.9.26 released - reports bugs h

I tried installing the previous version of of the firmware (2.0.28) as kindly provided, but the problem persists - my Archos 5 freezes during video playback. It happened almost a dozen times on the way to work this morning (a 35 minute journey), so it is really frustrating. There must be something w...

Re: Angry Birds Android Beta

Probably a bit of a stupid question, but how do you make it work in full screen mode? When I try to open it I get a message on the notification bar that the application has requested full screen mode.

Re: Firmware Version 2.0.38/1.9.26 released - reports bugs h

That's brilliant, I have installed the 2.0.28 firmware on my A5H and I'm going to give it a spin.

Many thanks for your help. Hope that the next firmware upgrade resolves the problem anyway, but if not I've now got that copy of 2.0.28 to fall back to if need be.

Re: Firmware Version 2.0.38/1.9.26 released - reports bugs h

I have had my ups and downs with my Archos 5 (partly my fault) and am on my second one having sent the first back for repair and had it replaced when the fault was diagnosed as permanent. My second Archos 5 had been working just fine and I was watching my AVI files without any problems at all, until...

Re: Firmware Version 2.0.38/1.9.26 released - reports bugs h

Having installed the new firmware (2.0.38) I am having problems viewing videos. My Archos 5 tends to freeze after about 5 mins of viewing and I have to hold down the power button to reset. I have tried a full reinitialisation and reinstalled all of my video files, but the problem persists. I have do...

Re: media center feautures are not available

This media center disk check problem has happened to me twice now. The first time I waited as suggested and it finally resolved itself, but it did take several hours. This is not the optimal solution if you want to use your Archos any time in the near future. The second time I accessed the user manu...
