Try taking the unit outdoors, maybe your car, and try it there.

Re: easy market install on donut 1.7.xx firmware: the apk wa

Try downloading a few apps from within the Market app on your Archos, then see if it shows up as a device in your online account. That's the way to get the device recognised in the first place.

Good luck.

Re: how to reformat, what firmware ?

That one is valid! I was about to ask about that here, if there's any way to get rid of the soft buttons in full screen video ;] Well, I'm glad I mentioned it now. This UrukDroid is not just some esoteric FW change, designed by techies for techies. It really does improve on Archos' own FW in many p...

Hi Jamie, there are no instructions whatsoever about the keyboard in either the supplied guide or the downloaded full manual.
Kind regards, Steve.
Did you download the "Coverboard" Manual? From memory, I have a feeling that it says you just fit and type.

Re: repair/formatting basic applications missing

To get the option to install the original third party apps, you should download and install a firmware, even the same one you currently use.

You can go to the Archos support site and download the original pics, music, vids etc from here ftp://support.archos.com.

Good luck.

Re: Recording with the DVR station

I note that the other replies talk of recording from a source, or a cable box. But you say you want to record from your TV. Does your TV have video out? As opposed to video in? Usually the TV is designed to be the destination device, rather than the source for output.

Just checking.
