Re: what a great tablet

Despite having to return two units due to hardware faults, I am still very happy with my basic 101. Of course there are problems with ics, but these are being sorted. I am not dependant on this tablet so the freezing issue doesn't present too many problems with lost data (latest beta release seems t...

Re: Archos Warranty Return Costs

UK and European law sounds very different to USA.
Return of faulty goods is at the expense of the supplier not the consumer.

Archos and their returns policy

Ask Archos to arrange pick up the faulty tablet at their cost, ignore the rma document, they will not refund your returns postage. I would like to point out that their turnaround replacement was very impressive. It took just 2 and 3 days for my two replacements from initial email to delivery. I boug...

Gameloft files

I have today upgraded to LCD and noticed I have a gameloft folder with two games folders. These games don't appear in the apps list (I assume because I chose not to install 3rd party apps). The gameloft folder is 1.2 gb in size and as I have no interest in playing the games, can I just delete the fi...

Re: Lip-sync problem with flash video

I see lip sync problems, oddly these are not seen when viewing via HDMI.
Not quite sure what this means in terms where the problem lies.

Re: Firmware 4.0.5 - report bugs here

101 g9 8gb I get random freezes, sometimes it can be the first app opened and 5 seconds, sometimes can be stable for 20-30 mins. Other times it freezes repeatedly after very short periods. It happens on most apps I use, maps, guardian, BBC news, Gmail, etc, nothing fancy, but common factor appears t...

Re: ICS test firmware tackling Wi-Fi and HDMI issues

Regulars freezes with 405. Every 5 minutes. Didn't experience this with patch 2 on 404.

After the first couple of hours being unusable due to freezes, things seem to have calmed down, using same apps no freezes today's.

Re: cant get hdmi connection to work

A further update. I have now got HDMI to work on a Sony kdl-40u2000 TV, both video and sound seem OK. However on my main TV Panasonic tx-p42x10b I cannot get any signal. All 3 HDMI ports don't work and the adjust TV overscan setting is disabled. On the Sony TV the overscan setting is adjustable and ...

Re: Browser hanging

Since ics update, I get random freezing, machine reboots on screen timeout (1 min). Browser seems to be the main culprit although I don't have more than two tabs open.

Re: Firmware 4.04 released - report bugs here

101 g9 8gb, seems to freeze then reboot on screen timeout (1 min). Can't see any pattern, but happens quite frequently maybe 3 - 4 times in a couple of hours. Not the end of the world and I am sure will get fixed in time.
Tab used for surfing, a bit of music, I player, news, twitter, no gaming

Re: Firmware 4.04 released - report bugs here

101 g9 Update went fine, only has tab for week and very light on apps. No gaming. Post upgrade things look ok except YouTube, web page videos won't run, keep buffering as though connection speed too slow. Updating flash player took 5+ minutes to download 6 meg file so it looks like something in the ...
