Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

Something of notice: They did change the detail to get to the FW link. And there is this added detail. This suggestion for RESET is likely going to be a problem for some as I interpret it. This might indicate the FW digs deeper on the App side than previously. My question in relation to this stateme...

Re: No more 5it's???

The A5 was/is a year old and replaced earlier this year by the A48. They are the same unit, but without the GPS. The OS and as far as I can see uses the same Firmware. The A5 was the successor to the 5IT without Android. I think production stopped last fall and they were dumping A5/500s for half of ...

Re: Adobe Air?

Adobe Air is what is used if you check-out books from a library or similar book lending situation. If you remove it, you will loose that capability. Are you sure you need all of those apps. and you might check the cache of some of the apps you rarely use, clean them out.

Re: file transfer form an archos 605 to a archos 101 tablet

This may be a critical question. What was the method you placed the videos and Music on your 605. If you used WMP (Windows Media Player) rather than just mount and copy, there can be DRM (Data Rights Management) placed on the vids. Also if you ripped them using WMP rather an independent program, it ...

Re: new firmware 2.3.20 - report bugs here

I always baseline my units for battery life. I have my unit in OverDrive since 2.1.04. This firm ware seems to drain my battery at a slightly higher rate than before. The rate is about 5-7% worse than my prior baseline. Not sure why. Display is set to be about 50% brightness each time, and usage of ...

Re: Trying to run a dos game on my 101

Repeat after me a 101 is not a PC, a 101 is not a PC. The problem are the graphic calls in DOS are different than in Java. The DOS emulators are made for CUI apps not Graphic apps which make extended calls. So you might get an old Seven Cities of Gold running, but that is not what you want.

Sorry.

Re: Archos 101 - HDMI to VGA

I use the HDMI to VGA converter from HP. It costs about $40US and works OK. Some bleed and fuzz/focus on 16x12 resolution. But it works. It has the Female VGA and HDMI. Do a Google on HDMI to VGA HP and you should find it.

Thanks very much for you help I didn;t know that I had 2.2. I was wondering if I will loose any rights with archos as far as the warranty if I install it?

Re: Archos Streaming?

You could look at something like Pogoplug. Google it for more info. I am using the Android client on my 101. Or if you have your shares set up, you can stream via SMB or media center Shares.

Re: Archos: Never again. Worthless support. >8(

Help me understand a couple of things. 1. Was this all from Archos or was the initial purchase from a different vendor? 2. Did you order it from a local supplier or cross-EU vendor? I am not trying to discount your frustration or anger, I just do not understand the purchase source against the RMA so...

I beg to differ, I think it does 90% of the Xoom I have played with the Xoom for work and was not overwhelmed. My opinion is that it will drop to $500...

As for laptops, most tablets wont come near the speed or fluidity of even the lowest budget laptop yet. Im sure there are a few that do, but they cost 3x the price.
