Then all of a sudden the Video Player decided to forget about shortcuts on my DS212j and now it asks for a user/password for the NAS which is silly as only shares require user/password permission !!...

Re: Official 4.0.28 released - report bugs

As usual, no problems with upgrading to 4.0.28.
Just one thing that caught my eye ; normally after an upgrade I see a notification that 100's of apps are being optimized. This time it was only 1 :?

Re: Let's get serious about the G9 for a moment

So, anybody here who can explain while some people have problems with one or more (all ?) releases while I and others upgrade to every new firmware without any problem at all ?? :?
Is it general problems or problems with specific apps ?

Re: Archos G9 on company intranet

I'm not really an expert, but your G9 by itself does not know what/where 'appsrv' is ... there should be a domain name server (DSN) on your Intranet that resolves the name to an IP-adress.
Also maybe adding the domain name of your intranet to appsrv helps ...

Re: Static IP Address

Don't think I've seen that option ... but can't you let your DCHP server always assign the same IP to your Archos ?? Most routers I've used have a setting like that.
