Re: What should Archos do for Gen9/Gen10, write suggestions

1. No Charby, platter based drives consume a lot more power than static drives. 2. All hard drives will do is delay releases and create major data issues. Bank on it. All Archos has to do is release a 10" 32gb version with micosd, USB host (full port) and all the great stuff you mention and it will...

Re: Is the 70 250GB HDD upgradable to 500GB or 640GB?

A) I find it odd that Archos would refuse to do ANY repairs after the warranty period. One thing that probably didn't help is that you had opened the device (which by your comments, it sounds like you informed them of this as well). B) Even if the drive itself fits inside the Archos, Archos's patter...

Re: Farewell Archos :D

either way... to me... that's too much for a tablet, especially with 16/32GB of storage (kinda like the iPad being too expensive). full function windows tablet, maybe. Android tablet, no.

Re: NEW FIRMWARE 2.1.8 !!!!!

I think it just means that it will show a more accurate charge status or something like that. Don't think a firmware update would improve battery life by much of anything.

Re: Wallpapers on Archos 70

believe the main reason it doesn't let you use the entire picture is because it does that whole panning thing when you switch from home screen to home screen.

Re: Coverting DVD to play on the Archos 70

either way you look at it, it's definitely worth it to purchase DVDFab. It's constantly updated to bypass new forms of copy protection on new DVD's and BluRay titles. Yes, it may be a touch expensive, especially if you go for the lifetime license.... but i'm certain it will more than meet your expec...

Re: Any barcode scanner apps work with the A70?

I'm not really sure the front-facing camera on the Archos 70... or probably any of their new tablets for that matter, have a high enough quality picture to actually be used as such. I could be wrong though.

Re: subtitles?

yea... i use DVDFab. I think i might try ripping one with the subtitles embedded in the movie rather than the idx/sub route. Or maybe i'll try one of my DVD rips with the idx/sub files and see if any of those do anything, either.

Anybody else having issues with subtitles?

Re: Warranty concerns re: Rooting

i think the biggest issue they may have when it comes to rooting is the potential for overclocking. Yes, they allowed one to manually control whether it runs at lower clock rates, or at the full 1Ghz, using the power settings... but a lot of people also know it can probably go quite a bit higher tha...

I'm actually surprised you thought the Tab was better in build quality than the Archos. I mean... i've heard that the A70 250GB feels a bit more solid than the A70 8GB.... but even comparing my 250GB to the Tab (mind you i've only ever handled the Tab at my local Best Buy)... the Tab just feels rath...

No.... that doesn't really surprise me. Especially when it seems like just about any firmware update, or any major one for that matter, removes the Cinema plugin. Probably just a gratuitous gift by Archos, for what reason i have no idea. Already bought the Cinema plugin anyway, so *shrug* 720p video...
