See Short easy version of this post here - m (picture) how long have you had it? will it get any charge when you put it on Standby? from what i have seen unless it is off , the normal USB connection is about enough to operate it, not enough to operate it and charge it at the same time. the "doc...

Re: GPS & Bluetooth

might something like this , be better ??
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BLUE-GPS-S3-SIRFS ... 20b957641e
easier and even though it is only Sifrfstar3 it would work better than the archos GPS for this purpose.

or better still some sirfstar4 or 5 thing of the same type and a bit more money.

there is one thing i do that i end up causing a "loop" in the media program , or a fail of some sort. I used to have to reboot to get it functional again, and one day discovered this instead. if it was "hung" i would open the Archos Video (internal) program up , raw, instead of o...

Re: "Problem parsing the package" downloaded .apk install

many of the "parse errors" that i have had with the machine are very specifically a corrupted file or corrupted download. so your probably right about that.
so yup it might not install or work proper, but it does indeed sound like it might be corrupt file.

Re: force beeping noise

mine squeales a bit when WIFI data (specifically) comes and goes in the unit. because i am not connected very often, AND because it identifies that the data is transferring, i enjoy it. could it be that it doesnt have this "beeping" sound when your not transferring data? other things are t...

Re: EXT3

one way to find out. and the first thing that i would try, is shrinking the videos. re-code one or 2 with the exact same resolution, but less Bytes per second. that will tell you if it is a data transfer issue quick enough. then recode a few with a resolution that is exacting for the machine, but ma...

Re: how to activate the gps

there are programs that will give it AGPS capability , but it does not "require" the web assist that AGPS Dependant systems can require. for just seeing the GPS reciever operating, or to check how poorly your works try the GPSdiag program that comes with it, or the well done GPSstatus prog...

If the "digitiser" is bowed, or the Case itself squeezes it wrongly, if it has gotten warped or bowed from heat. if there is something wedged between it and a case, or and the #1 possibility with an older archos if the battery behind it is bulging and pushing on the case or the back of the...

Re: A/V out from Archos 5 Internet Tablet?

mini-dock or battery dock. they will do the video out ONLY, and are not to high priced?

on the gen7 archos device there is not any kind of video out on the headphone jack stuff, like there was in previous generations. the connections for all that are the array of bottom connection points.

Re: Processor underclocking?

The reason many of these devices run for many many hours playing music, and way less hours playing 3d games, or watching video, is because the processor steps automagically. that just leaves turning off the light , which then uses the most power. plus stopping all the other power wasting things like...
