Re: Blackberry Playbook

I have had an Archos 70 250gb for a while but was seduced by the Playbook (64gb, $400). The hardware is amazing--gorgeous and very responsive screen. The Archos sometimes is very much not responsive. The Playbook feels very solid and premium. I would not describe the Archos that way. But the Playboo...

Deep sleep takes a tad longer to wake, but uses a lot less power. I find that some programs hinder deep sleep from actually being activated (Yahoo chat seemed to be one).

Re: Netflix App

By any chance you are from Canada? I am in Canada and I am getting the same time out message. I believe the App logs into netflix.com not netflix.ca Anyone has a work around? I am in the U.S., Tx.

Re: Netflix App

I side loaded the one without the device check. It installs, but no matter how many times I try my correct email/PW "times out" each time. (70, 250GB)

I can bluetooth tether on my Nokia N900. But it isn't Symbian, if that's what yours is.

Re: Archos 70 250GB - Music Stops playing in winamp?!

Still early in testing, but I reformatted by HD (from FAT32 to ext3) it seems to be much better. Still occasional pauses, but it seems better so far. I got through one 320kbs mp3 without a single pause. Never happened before. Will update if it changes dramatically. UPDATE: no meaningful difference a...

Re: Archos 70 250GB - Music Stops playing in winamp?!

As per Lancewex' request: I have the flash-based A70. Just tried listening to an album of MP3 tracks coded at around 256kbps (some a little higher, some a little lower) using PowerAMP. Nary a skip/stutter/pause while the app has focus. I did manage to get it to stutter a tiny bit once or twice when...

Re: Archos 70 250GB - Music Stops playing in other players

Try to see if the music stops when the screen is off. It could be that the hard drive is going to sleep which the stock player prevents. Change the screen setting to always on to see if it helps. Maybe one of the app writers will figure out how to keep the HD awake... I don't t think it is the hard...

Re: Music Stops playing in any but stock player

An oldish thread, but I too am having this problem. I have found a thread or two in other device forums that mention this, so perhaps not an Archos problem. If an mp3 is encoded at a high bitrate (~256kps or higher) only the built in player will work without pausing. FLAC seems to have no problem. I...

Re: Failure AppsLib V2.0 Build 66 - RESOLVED

My take: You got some serious problem with your A70H. Installing Appslib version 2.0 build 66, then Clear data should work. If it doesn't then you got some serious problem. Allen Based on what? There is no concrete evidence saying what the problem actually is--for anyone with this issue. And I have...

Re: Failure AppsLib V2.0 Build 66 - RESOLVED

Android reset has nothing to do with Appslib. The solution for Build 66 is Clear data, as mentioned earlier in this topic. Allen Incorrect. I already stated in my last post that I cleared the data and the problem was unchanged--very frequent "not responding" messages. I cleared data twice and reboo...

Re: Archos 70 IT 250GB Suddenly Rebooting ...

Mine also does this. Usually it seems like it only reboots the UI, because it is up and ready much faster than a full reboot. But it's better to do a fulll reboot or it continues to happen. This problem and the really bad Aplib (soooo buggy and slow) have me wondering if I will keep this device.
