Almost 2 years and still kinda disappointed

So, I've owned an Archos mp3 player in the past (AV 140 if memory serves me right) and bought an Archos 605 wifi like 5 months after it came out. I was quite pleased with it until they locked down the firmware and I had to ship it in for repairs, so I couldn't hack it ever. Now, the HDD in it is fai...

Re: 605 in dock issue

So it's not just isolated to my computer, or the dock.

I connected it at work using the USB cable it came with and it still asks me if i want to format the drive... :/

I have changed nothing on it, what could have caused this?

Re: 605 in dock issue

Oh and I tried removing the MTP device as you mentioned, didnt work at first, until I cleared the temp files on the archos.

Re: 605 in dock issue

Well I cleared the temp files on the archos, using the built in tools, and now MTP mode works, but as PC HDD does not, still asks if i want to format it. :/

You might want to consult your local police, as they have falsely sold you something.

605 in dock issue

So I reinstalled windows, and I'm now having a most obnoxious issue with my device. Before it was working properly, but now when I plug it into my DVR dock windows keeps reporting "found MTP device", or it comes up with removable device, do you want to format it? (NO!). At no point am I ab...

Re: Plugin alternatives

Does this mean that there is development still going for hacking the 605 units? Can I still have hope?

Playback through DVR dock.

When I have my 605 wifi (160gb) connected to my DVR dock, can it playback larger res video to the video output methods? (Component/s-video, etc)

It seems quite lame that it doesn't scale larger video down :/

Re: Computer Remote Access

From what I understand MythTV also has UPnP features. I am in the process of testing them soon, but do not have first hand experience with this yet. I also think that Windows Media Player (probably version 10 and up) can stream via UPnP connections. I am certain there are probably apps in GNU/Linux ...

Re: Firmware 2.1.04 bugs

1) My 605 restarts sometimes after unlocking the unit. This happens about 10% of the time. This has happened for past firmwares, but is persistent in 2.1.04 (current). 2) My 605 occasionally pauses while it buffers, and then when it comes back it stutters while playing the new buffer. Typically I ne...

Support and updates.

Has archos made an official statement as to when the 605 wifi will stop being supported with software updates and such?

I'm still wanting FLAC/MKV, etc.

Do you STILL want to see FLAC on your Archos 605?

I still am waiting to see FLAC on my Archos 605. Considering it's FREE I don't see why this isn't implemented. Requiring very little man hours considering it already has GNU/Linux support.

Do you still want to see it?

Yes, the exact words are 'Archos shall either repair or replace the defective product at Archos' option.' They do have wording in there regarding modifications ... 'Archos' limited warranty covers only those defects which arise as a result of normal use of the product, and do not apply to any: 1. i...

It is an interesting question for sure. I would say that they should not consider any 'soft' modification of the 605 as voiding anything as long as the fault you are returning the unit for is not related to the soft change you have made. That is pretty standard stuff for warranty issues. However, t...

I've read a bunch about archos not honoring the wishes of people sending their units in for RMA, and forcefully upgrading their firmware. Is it reasonable, in a public sense (I guess) to insist they do not update the firmware as you have qtopia installed? Does the very installation of it "void ...

I would advice you to contact Archos- I have a mix (good/bad) time with their custumer support but after they were unable to fix my, I got a replacement. With this new one, everything works much better i.e no longer short battery life or can't find any network. I used to have no idea about streamin...
