Re: odys neo X7 or next

Has anyone played with a 7 inch Odys neo X7 or next ? Both models cost around 115 to 130 euro in germany. I do not care about the zillion video codecs in Archos tablets. I really want to be able to listen to the radio and browse the odd web page. There are a few customer reviews on amazon.de which ...

odys neo X7 or next

I have an archos 28 and have been appropriately scarred. I never expected much for 100 euro, but the device is nearly useless. With 128 Mb memory, it does not even work as a useful internet radio. Flash never worked (runs out of memory and dies). WLAN/wifi reception is appalling, so the connection i...

Re: Problem with wifi

Some firmware releases had problems with the last two channels (12,13 ?), but that has not been the case for a while. The problem is that my Android Archos can't find any networks. I know that theres Wi-Fi in my house but my device can't find it. Also when i turn on Wi-Fi on my device and it tries t...

Re: Which formfactor and other Gen8 purchase decisions

@defenderbob, Thanks. Is the OS and updates the same for all Gen8 devices? Just wondering about Flash status on the 3" models. It's the same file that the tablet reads and installs. Flash WILL work any of the Gen8 models. Almost. The A28 has half the RAM. Flash installs, but nobody has ever managed...

Re: Podcast

[...] Do I need a special app to download podcast? If podcast downloading is even possible? Actually, you almost do not need an app. Open your browser and find a link to your podcast. 20 % of the time, it will start downloading and half the time after that it will play in the stock mp3 player. On a...

Re: What's the fastest connection speed?

I just got a new gigabit router and while my network did go faster, with the netbooks going as fast as 11MBps with the connection speeds at 135mbps. The archos is still at 54mbps and barely improved on the data transfer, i still have to pause for the movie to catch up. I think it's still on wifi-g....

Re: WiFi connection problems on my 28

im having the same problem and i tried the above comment ..did not work Maybe you should try to isolate the problem. Go to your router/WLAN box and turn off all encryption and authorisation. Don't do your internet banking during this time if such things worry you. If you can, check that a laptop or...

WLAN one/two channel 20/40 MHz

I am using an archos 28, but the question is more general. When connected by 802.1n (not b or g), does the archos use channel bundling ? That is, can it use 40 MHz, two channels, that many WLAN access points use these days ? My access point broadcasts happily using two channels. I have a laptop whic...

Re: Screen doesn't work (right of the box)

It sounds as if you have simply had bad luck and received an unhealthy unit.
It is time to go back to the shop or ship it back to the vendor.

Re: Screen doesn't work (right of the box)

It certainly sounds like a hardware problem, but it is easy to check. If you get out of the screen calibration program, does anything work ?
When you say the rest of the screen seems unresponsive, do you mean sluggish or no response ?

Re: podcast app that works with the screen off

Apparently the Archos doesn't conform to standard sleep protocols as a result neither doggcatcher nor Google listen continues to play once the screen shuts off. Anyone know of a working podcast app for the Archos? My totally ordinary, unrooted archos 28 plays fine with google listen and the screen ...

The only solution that works is to change the power management settings so the screen never turns off. No. My device has a very s...

Anyone try to power it through the usb cable connected to one of those USB wall outlet plugs? Sure. It works fine for me. It also works if you have a powered USB hub. The pr...
