Re: Video Formats?

I used Handbrake to convert DVD (VOB) files to MP4 for a TV series with 3-4 episodes on a DVD. It appears only to convert only 1 episode. Handbrake converts one title at a time. You just need to set up the other titles for conversion and convert them as well. There is a queue, though, so you can se...

Re: Looking for an app so I can text cell phones

Most all cell phone providers provide an email/SMS gateway that will allow you to send a text message to their subscribers via an email message. This is a list I have. It is probably non-exhaustive, but it may give you a start: AUSTRALIA [email protected].com.au T-Mobile/Optus Zoo AUSTRIA [email protected].t-...

Re: US availability, links to stores that have it in stock

Helen, Personally, I would like to thank you for giving us some information regarding this. As far as I know, you are the first person from any company that has given us any information with regard to the 43 in the forum. While it is not particularly good news for us that have been waiting since Oct...

It is free, handles multiple formats(dvd included) and it is free.

You can use one of the apple presets(ipad or universal).
Seconded for Handbrake.

Re: US availability, links to stores that have it in stock

Newegg is (IMO) THE best on-line retailer in the business. I have been doing business with them for many years -- pretty much since they opened for business. I keep expecting them to go downhill like so many other retailers do over time, but they keep providing excellent service time and time again....

Re: Texting when teathered

Are you looking for SMS texting? I think most cellular providers allow SMS texting by email. For example sending an email to [email protected] (where xxxxxxxxxx is the 10 digit phone number) will send a text to a Verizon phone. I am pretty sure most other cell companies have something similar.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think what thorstenhirsch wants is the 43 to act like an expensive bluetooth headset for his Nokia phone.

Dunno if it is possible....

Re: Should i wait for Samsung Galaxy media player or....

I think the 43 is already in trouble. ...and the longer Archos waits to deliver them at something better than a onesie-twosie rate, the more in trouble it is.

Re: Archos 4.3 : shipping, review and rumors.

Yes, fair point about "release", though I more or less meant that by the time I get my 43 the gen 9 may be out with higher specs and glowing reviews from those fortunate enough to have snagged one of them, leaving the rest of us wanting one! The fact that the 43 is technically released or Gen9 will...

Re: Archos 4.3 : shipping, review and rumors.

What also alarms me is the possiblity that gen 9 may be released this year. I'll feel like a real fool if this happens. Agreed, but who cares if it is "released"? The 43 is "released"! If they can't get the product to the end users, they can "release" gen 123 for all the good it does their end user...

Re: Archos 4.3 : shipping, review and rumors.

Nope - not here. Ordered last week of November 2010 and haven't heard a thing since. The A43 is pretty much vapourware in NA. Probably why I found GeoD's smiley and overall post so funny - it RESONATES! I'd agree, if it wasn't so frustrating. I've never owned an Archos, and I am very close to the p...

Re: What would you like to ask Archos at CES?

I want to know when they are going to ramp up production to the point that the hardware is actually available to us. I have been waiting since October for a reputable U.S. retailer to actually have the 43 in-stock and available for purchase. I have been on notification lists both with retailers and ...

Re: US availability, links to stores that have it in stock

Most of us (patient consumers)will wait until the MSRP is honored etailers such as amazon or j&r, unless a competitve product arrives & is available first.. then Archos and my pre-order company lose out on a sale. This is exactly where I am at. If Archos does not get it's collective poo in gear and...
