Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

All I want to say this release is horrible one that I ever experienced. First, the battery is draining in the background even you thought was powered off. Second, the Wi-Fi doesn't auto connect or reported an error when you are returning to home, the only solution is to reboot the device; Third is t...

Re: Future A70 owner? frustrated by price and availability

you should be happy and spend your money somewhere... I personally don't think archos is reliable and well support product. I have been reading a lot posts from this forum(Thanks!) to keep the device working normal. if you would like to buy a used one PM me. I have two A70s. Thanks.

Re: 0% Battery issue

device must be warm to charge, mine refuses to charge if left in a cold room. Warm it up then the only way i know it will charge every time is to do this : 1. Power off ( you must select power off when you hold in the power button .. not just turn the screen off) 2. Connect power cable 3. Power on ...

Re: Four Things I Don't Like About the Archos 70

1) No USB charging. -- Archos uses a standard USB connection, but then saddles us with a proprietary charging solution. Too bad. Most people have a bunch of USB cables laying around the house. 2) No composite video output. -- Having HDMI is great. Unfortunately, when you're traveling many places wo...

Re: Hi nz! Question about micro USB host cable...

A suggestion to Archos: throw the mini USB A adapter and the micro HDMI adapter into the box and ditch the very ordinary earphones. Earphones are easy to find but the adapters are not. Most people have lots of sets of earbuds and headphones anyway. And the adapters take advantage of the unique outp...

Re: A70 battery lasts

Thanks for feedbacks... I would think maybe the photo frame drained its battery as it was nice and bright doing picture frame job. I also noticed a full charge and power up the device will drain %5 battery life.

A70 battery lasts

I have fully charged it this morning 100% on A70. I played 1 and 1/2 hours music, about 10 minutes checking cpu clocking speed(not change it). I think the battery bar was 61 before I played 1 hour photo frame(slide show). Battery only 8% left and warning me, and then a black screen in a few minutes....

Re: Overclock 800MHz to 1Ghz

I am wondering if we overclock at 1Ghz, would the battery life lasts the same at the lower speed? anyone knows this?
I bet Archos has a reason not setCPU at the max...

Re: Charging question

The charger plug is not fully in and easy to loose apart, and confused you might plug in the ear phone slot.

Also, the number indicator on power icon might be unreliabled. I experience a few times the number went down 10-15 after unplug the charger in 1-2 minutes.
