Re: New Archos70 antagonist ??

I had one of those before I had the A70 and it's not even close to the A70 in terms of quality. The screen was garbage. It was laggy. From what I read after I got it the CPU is an overclocked 800Mhz CPU. It was just terrible. Luckily I was able to return mine and ended up getting the A70 and couldn'...

Re: Firmware 2.1.04 released - report bugs here

@Toonces Sorry, I find your "explanation" unhelpful. As I read it, it exacerbates confusion about the abbreviation RAM, rather than clarifying it. People from the "hacked", "jailbroken", phone world talk about custom "ROMS". Would you care you finish your explanation by stirring the expression "ROM...

Re: Firmware 2.1.04 released - report bugs here

This update did not fix this issue: When you connect a Bluetooth mouse to the Archos 70, the on-screen keyboard won't display until you disconnect the mouse. Annoying, mostly, but still... I have an Apple BT mouse paired with my A70 and the on-screen keyboard displays for me. I'm on 2.1.04 as an OT...

Yeah, that is going to be a neat trick won't it? I was just saying the same thing in another thread. Certainly going to be interesting to see where Google takes this.

They also state that most certainly that some features from 3.0 will make it back into the phone versions. It will be interesting t...

Re: Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 3.0 Honeycomb rumors and facts

Hi, I'm 100% confident that the archos products will get gingerbread, but to honeycomb, I'd say not a chance in hell. The reason being, 2.2 and 2.3 have a very similar ui, but honeycomb is new. Archos has advertised it looking like it does now, and if they were to put honeycomb on it, it could conf...

You might try again. It works from here. You do need to register at xda in order to download the file since they host it. I haven't seen it downloadable elsewhere.

Re: Purchased Cinema Plugin - But Media Servers Wont Show MK

Try using an SMB share and see if you can see/play the mkv there. It's likely that the media server doesn't show the mkv. I know my WHS box will not show mkv's when I access via upnp but they're there and play via SMB.

Re: 16gb Micro Sdhc you might want to take a look at

That's the card I have in my A70. I picked it up for $25 or $27 on sale at NewEgg. It's not a bad card. Tests out at around 16Mbps write. Certainly above the class 10 rating but then again so does an older SanDisk 8GB class 2 that I have. The class ratings only tell you the minimum sustained write s...

They mentioned (at CES) we would get 2.3 and eventually 3.0. Really?!?! I wasn't following things but if so, that's great. But...let's get the current kinks worked out of the system first (and faster). Then we can move on to the next versions of Android. I believe that's exactly why there are new v...
