Re: Archos 5 firmware wish list

Since you're down to 60GB (the most of us I guess) and have to keep a video/audio and seperate audio stream could cost too much space. It would be easier if the 5 had something like the Gmini 402, where you'd hold the F2 button and it would switch to video out. This was way more efficient, and with ...

Re: Archos 5 firmware wish list

I don't find it should be possible, but i see where drift'n thoughts's idea is coming from. I watch a lot of stand up comedy, but while walking you don't always have to see the show. the least they could do is just an option when to turn on the screensaver if you're in a full-screen application, lik...

Re: "reasonable doubt": Battery dock vs. Mini-dock

No, ghegh, the other way araound Archos 5 via USB = 8 hours charging (specs) Archos 5 + charge via mini dock = 2 hours Archos 5 + battery dock (is half capacity battery of archos 5) = 3 hours So, basically, the electrical story: A computer charges the battery in 8 hours, by loading it with 500mA.

Re: "reasonable doubt": Battery dock vs. Mini-dock

When charging your 5 with a PC it takes 8 hours. This is because a USB-port can only supply 500mA. This means that - if charging with the mini dock - charges 4 times as fast, so with a current of 2 Ampere. This is indeed quite a lot, but there are batteries that can outlive this, and archos MUST hav...

Re: Screen Protector

For Dutch users:
I've ordered a 32x25 centimeter screenprotector for Ôé¼24,-. It's quite expensive, but you've got very big sheet (enough for 9 Archos 5s ;) )

Re: bluetooth

Just imagine this: You connect your Archos 5 to your bluetooth headset. You listen to your music and suddenly *poof* you get a call. Your music automatically stops and you get a ringtone in the same headset. You accept the call with a button on the headset and via a built-in mic you can finish the c...

This Pixel Policy has been commited by the EU (European Union). That's why Archos can't change this and it's pretty standard.

Re: Archos 5 firmware wish list

Definately a Notepad type app that allows creating and editing txt. Yes. The problem is that this would require external keyboard support, something which the x05s lacked for no obvious good reason. Or it would need as a minimum some sort of on-screen keyboard, I guess. Archos 5 ALREADY has an on-s...

Philips Living Light Flash App

I just read about this special app for the Archos 5. It's a application to colour your screen in all thinkable colours, and even a stroboscope function (although it's rather sickening ;) )

Too bad the headcam gives your a 4:3 aspect ratio, while the screen is 16:9... They just ook the old camera and changed nothing :(

Re: Gapless playback?

Thanks for the information!

For magic man: The silence is stored in the .mp3-file, the archos does not recognize silences, so it will always play that max 191 samples of the last block. It's impossible to get rid of that silence (in mp3s, that is)

Re: Gapless playback?

Why couldn't it be possible?

According to the HDD LED on my Gmini 402 the archos constantly load mp3s in the memory buffer. It could already load the next mp3 into the buffer, so it could immediately play the next song.

They should make the mic in the FM-remote a mic for 3G VoIP. That'd be rad!

Re: get a load of this guy!

Obviously this guy hasn't read as much about the Archos 5 as we did ;) On the other side:

Imagine you've bought an expensive iTouch, with 8GB, and along comes a IMT that does it all, and better, for about the same price... I'd be pissed too ;)
