Re: I have had my Archo101 for 14 months, AND........

I've owned a 101 since day one. In fact owned many Archos devices for over 10 years. Really sad that a firm that led the way with handheld multi media devices and touch screen devices years before anyone had ever heard of an ipad is now withering away on the sidelines. Unfortunately the innovators v...

Re: HDMI Cable Length Limit

My projector is connected to my receiver via a 30ft HDMI cable with no issues. I'm guessing the length is not your issue.

Re: Fairwell Archos, you have been great to me.

I'm afraid i'm probably joining you. I have Samsung tablets too and they really are in a different league compared to the Archos. My 101 is a decent device but it just doesnt have the overall professional quality hardware or software of Samsung or Apple devices (Note that i'm not an Apple fan and do...

What a touchy crowd! Firstly, the original posters topic is "Not Only Archos With Issues". It is a general topic covering all tablets regardless of price. The OP even posted a link to a Samsung forum. My response is based on my experiences as an owner of both Archos and Samsung tablet devices. Secon...

Re: Not only Archos with issues

With all the issues troubling our tablets, I was wondering if some of the other tablets are perfect. Not. Good to know!! :lol: / I have an Archos 101 and a Samsung 7" Tab.

Some users reported that low brightness can cause wake up issues.
I often have my brightness set that low since i regularly use the device in the dark. Its possible that could be my issue. I'll do some morre analysis.
Thanks for pointing it out.

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

Has anyone else had issues with the Archos not waking from sleep with the power button after this firmware? I'm on my 3rd 101 now due to having problems with both previous ones. This one was working fine until this last update. It now wont wake from sleep with the power button. Initially I deleted ...

Re: Blackberry Tethering - SUCCESS

I have a BB torch and have for some time successfully tethered my Dell laptop via USB or BlueTooth to the phone. I am using Telstra in Australia. I purchased a Archos 70/250Gb only 2 weeks ago, guess I should have looked at the forum first. I notice that in the latest firmware under the heading tet...

Re: Blackberry Tethering - SUCCESS

I'm now very happy my 101 tethers with my Bold 9000 but I have another dilema.
Someone gave me a Galaxy Tab but there is no tethering option in the bluetooth settings.

Is Tethering a custom addon that Archos provides on their Android devices?

Thanks.

Re: Blackberry Tethering - SUCCESS

Threw my SIM card in an old Blackberry Bold 9000 and tethering works perfectly on AT&T. Pretty decent speed too.
I'm running the latest A101 firmware.

Does not work at all on my Blackberry Torch which is annoying. Might be a Blackberry OS5 versus OS6 issue.

Anyone have tethering working on OS6?

Re: Blackberry Tethering - SUCCESS

No success here. Blackberry Torch 9800 with AT&T and cannot get it to work.
Almost seems as if the bluetooth connection goes into an endless on and off cycle. When i try and tether it says unable to tether.

Tried a variety of settings on both the 9800 and the 101 with zero success.
