Re: Archos G9 101 VS. Asus EEE Pad Transformer

The TF has an IPS display, viewing angle is great (178┬║) and it also comes with gorilla glass and that is a big plus when you have a 4 year old that loves playing games on the TF :)

Re: Archos G9 101 VS. Asus EEE Pad Transformer

I've sold my A101 Gen8 to buy a TF101 and i only regret one thing... the Video/Music Player from Archos e far better than the stock players on the TF (ex. UPNP/SMB streaming and better codec support), so i guess that G9 will have that awesome players aswell. The reasons for selling the A101 was the ...

Re: What happened to the lightweight tablets?

200g diff is plenty in a tablet... goes from comfortable to hold in one hand to not comfortable at all.

Re: Archos Gen9 event is streaming live now

It's heavier that Gen8 but almost every other dual-core 10'' tablets are.
Makes me think they aren't heavy, it's gen8 that's light :)

Nice price!

Re: cannot copy large files

Use the archos tool to split the file or format the partition using ext3 (thru settings).

Archos video & music apps

Can the Archos video and music apps be "extracted" and installed onto another device?

TIA

Re: Check this out, Acer Iconia.

I recently sold my Archos101 not because i didn't like it but mostly cause i wanted honeycomb, a more powerfull device and because the view angles on the Archos are too limited... Just wanted to know if the Acer Iconia can stream from a samba share? And if the Acer Iconia can play MKV, DIVX, MOV, FL...

Re: Using Archos 101 while charging?

I have set mine to deep sleep after 2 minutes so I just let it enter deep sleep by it self. There should be no problem putting the device to sleep manually tho.

The slow blinking led means its fully charged.

Re: Using Archos 101 while charging?

Connecting the charger while the device is off will power up the device so i think it's advisable to let it stay on.
I always try to charge mine before it goes below 10%.

You use the button mode to exit a game if you already rooted and used arctools to put them on the notification bar.

Re: No soft button anymore !!! ^_^

Archos should make the bar hide after some time (secs) and let a hard button or a smaller soft button pull the bar back.

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

Do you have the brightness level set to < 20%-25%?
Some users reported that low brightness can cause wake up issues.

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

Is the battery totally drained? That's why the device doesn't wake up?
Maybe there's an app that prevent the device from entering deep sleep and that causes the battery to drain to 0%.

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

@xbs: I think you didn't understand my complaint. I'm doing SW development for 25 years and know that it's a bad UI if you need to set a switch to disable something. So if you want a feature to be switched on/off then do it like that and not switch on the off mode. It just says "Disable powersave"....

Re: new firmware 2.3.26 - report bugs here

How did I fix the problem? Quite simple really I went to this Archos link http://update.archos.com/8/gen8/gen8_2.3.20/firmware_archos_android_gen8.aos and downloaded the last code drop for 2.3.20 and hey presto the device is as good as ever!
