Re: new firmware 2.3.20 - report bugs here

Well, it's not any worse. 2.3.20 already did the damage and 2.3.26 is just more of the same.

Re: new firmware 2.3.26

Various audio apps are still crippled by this firmware, as with 2.3.20. These all worked fine under 2.1.08. But now my A32 goes into deep sleep after the screen times out even if Google Listen is still playing a podcast. Same thing happens with MediaFly OnAir. Try this temp solution, Wakelocker app...

Re: new firmware 2.3.20 - report bugs here

2.3.26 is now available. Unfortunately, it does NOT fix the audio app problems on my A32; stuff still pauses after the screen times out, the A32 is going into deep sleep when it shouldn't. Here's what they claim: Version 2.3.26 - April 21st, 2011 Wi-Fi: fix cannot scan on an access point above chann...

Re: new firmware 2.3.20 - report bugs here

I contacted Archos support via email regarding the audio app problems my A32 has been having since this firmware was installed. They replied yesterday and simply blamed the other apps, saying I needed to contact those developers. That's fine and dandy normally but when at least three different apps ...

Re: new firmware 2.3.20 - report bugs here

More digging...more experiments. Something is fishy with the Deep Sleep and WakeLocks in this firmware. It kind of looks like this firmware is not seeing all of the WakeLocks that the apps are presumably using. Archos' System Monitor app shows the native media player is holding a WakeLock while play...

Re: new firmware 2.3.20 - report bugs here

Add MediaFly OnAir to the list of apps that pause when the screen turns off; along with Google Listen and slightly different behavior from MOG. MOG will finish the currently playing song and then refuse to start the next song in the playlist until the screen is turned back on. Below is the sequence ...

Re: new firmware 2.3.20 - report bugs here

I dont have this issue using the stock Music app, but I have had this happen to me ever since I can remember with Last.fm. Now I dont have playback stop, but I do have audio chop in and out. Also seems to happen with the display active and me multitasking while listening to Last.fm. Could be normal...

Re: new firmware 2.3.20 - report bugs here

I'll chime in again and add that I'm still encountering weird audio stopping bugs on my A32 when the display turns off, either via timeout or manually. It looks like it might only be happening if headphones are plugged in. If I don't have headphones connected, the A32 appears to continue to play aud...

Re: To Install or not to Install

Stick with 2.1.08. 2.3.20 pauses audio playback when the screen times-out. Convenient! :evil:

Significance of different color back panels?

There are two A32's in my household. They were bought 3 or 4 weeks apart; one from Expansys USA and one from Amazon. I just noticed that the back of one is silver (Expansys) but the back of the other is black (Amazon). Both show the same board version under Settings - About Device: A32-V5. The vario...

Re: Firmware 2.0.71 released, report bugs here

Rhapsody's app is still blowing up whenever I try to play any audio, either streamed or after downloading for offline play.

Re: Rhapsody

I was hopeful the new Archos firmware (2.0.71) would resolve the Rhapsody crashes but unfortunately it didn't. Rhapsody still blows up every time I try to play audio; either streamed or after downloading tracks for offline play. Android Log Cat is reporting: 12-17 22:28:29.942: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(...

Re: A70 as e-reader; what do I need to know??

You might want to check out OverDrive Media Console. It can handle both EPUB eBooks and MP3 audiobooks; either from your local library or free sites like Feedbooks, Project Gutenberg, etc. You can find it on the Android Market or download the APK from their website.
