Re: Arnova 9 g2 8gb or the arnova 10 g2 8gb, which one do i

Are the problems mentioned with the 10 g2 from experience, or from reviews? I ask because i have this device and must say i think the display is great! Sure its not ips, but its one of the best tablet screens, if not the best in and above its price point

hi all, congrats to everyone that recieved a 10 G2 from santa - great little devices! Just wondered what everyone thought was the best music player app, all that ive tried so far lead to skipping or stuttering (most notable when browsing) - ive trid different browers too, and settled on opera - whic...

Re: MX Video Player pause...

Well, it seems its only happening with video played from SD or usb, if its from internal memory.....then it pauses fine. I think it may be an mkv issue.....HW encoding i think means its using the built in codecs from the device itself - but i think MX Vid Player is then adding its own processing to ...

MX Video Player pause...

Hi all, Merry CHristmas! Just wondered if anyone else has a problem with MX Video player - when im using the HW decoder the pause/play button seems to not do anything. if i switch to SW it works fine! I guess i can just press back as it will auto resume where i left off, but a bit strange that it do...

Re: Setup Tips an10g2

theres a post on this group about how to get google market by installing the components, and no need for custom roms. I just wonder - as this very simple fix exists - is there really any need for custom roms to bring us the market? the fix works extremely well, pretty much risk free (its only instal...

Re: Quality concerns

well....i tried a lord of the rings 700mb rip - and the dark scenes really looked bad. i then tried a 720p rip of the same movie - of course the quality is better as expected....and no banding! so it seems that sub 720p videos will play fine, but due to the scaler in the machine- well, it doesnt see...

Re: Quality concerns

the banding is in video only it seems, images just seem to not have the full 16 million colours that modern screens should have. im a photographer so compression of jpegs isnt an issue - i only resized to see if it would help, initially i was using full high res files. some images will look fine, if...

Re: New Vid Conversion

my mistake - i was forgetting the formats the 7HT supports, in the container section you can use all of the available options, avi, mkv and mp4. the mp4 will use aac audio, and may give a slightly smaller filesize, the mkv will help a little if you are having lip synch issues, the avi in most cases ...
