Re: Archos 7HT - Video across wifi...

ah thanks for that Allen!!

i had spotted someone mentioning es fe - but they had issues with file types? generally speaking if a file is compatible with the 7HT - will es play it? also if it uses its own video player - is the quality as good as the 7HT's own player?

many thanks

Archos 7HT - Video across wifi...

Hi all! New to the Archos 7 forums, just lost the use of my 605 wifi (very sad!), so ordered a new 7HT (should be with me tomorrow by 1pm if amazon stick to their promise!!) What i wanted to know was - what is the difference between the 7HT and the 7IT? And most importantly...with the 605 Wifi i cou...

Re: just brought new battery

it depends i think, on the model? i replaced my 4gb version with the extended battery - and it was fairly easy yeah - just be careful when cutting (if your not soldering) the wires - make sure they dont touch each other, or touch the casing with them. If its the extended version you are replacing, i...

Re: Replacing 605 Battery with Extended version

defo a process to be careful with, but yeah totally worth doing. I too have followed the calibration process, but mine never seems to show all green bars - theres always 1 bar from max when fully charged. i still get the full 8 hrs play time consistantly, but the bar just will not reach the top. im ...

Re: General questions

yes union, your very right - 4gb and 30gb seem to be the only versions which can use the larger profile extended battery. with the 80gb Syzygy then yeah i think your stuck with the regular replacement battery.

Re: General questions

thats the chap yeah, bear in mind i think the extended batt is only suitable for the 4gb flash version, the HD gets in the way of the other models. also if ure ordering make sure it comes with a replacement back panel - a lot of places sell both together :-)

Re: General questions

it depends on the battery - the extended battery for the 605 gives me well over 12 hours constant music, or 8hrs approx constant video. if you plug ure archos into the pc, u can right click on the device in windows explorer and select properties - it gives you the percentage charge remaining. i woul...

Re: Replacing 605 Battery with Extended version

thanks kodiak i had read the same thing, and i did do that for about 5 cycles- total drain, then charge till blinking, then looping video. it didnt seem to initially help with my 5 bar problem, but as time is passing and im using it normally now i think its starting to all come together. patience i ...

Re: Replacing 605 Battery with Extended version

glad to hear its going well Nelly :-) as time has passed with mine the battery guage issues seem to be settling down and its a bit more illustrative of the power actually left. it does seem to drop to 1 bar fairly quickly - but that lasts for a good 3-4 hours after that at least. also after letting ...

Re: 605 cannot access PC - UPnP

I think it may be because your network is unsecured - if it has a name and password i think it may solve it. best of luck! let us know how you get on

try setting a user name and password on your windows machine, then trying it - latter versions of windows can be very picky about security

Re: 605 cannot access PC - UPnP

i always found that the upnp feature didnt work very well, i prefer to just share the folders in the normal way, and access the files through the file browser on the 605. not ideal, but it works at least

Strange Batt Meter

Hi all, I have recently upgraded my 605 battery, and have noticed something strange with the battery meter since. After charging the light blinks as it should - but only 5 bars are lit rather than 6. If i check the battery in windows it shows 67% full - and it just wont go past that. I use a usb wal...

Re: Replacing 605 Battery with Extended version

good luck! hopefully its just some recalibration needed on the new battery, mines still undergoin that and its been a few charges, fingers crossed it settles down. also the extended battery i think is just 2 batterys piggy backed - looks that way anyways, so its gonna take a good while to properly c...

Re: Replacing 605 Battery with Extended version

Hi Nelly, The only thing i would say is a little annoying is that the battery meter maybe isnt all that accurate - for example i can charge for 8-9 hours via usb wall plug, itll blink and it will only show 5 bars out of 6. It will then continue to last 7 hours of movie (with lcd at 2) or 8 hours (wi...

Re: do not buy this product !! tech warning !!

well to be honest, any company will do what they can to make money back in aftersales for a product. everyone would agree i think that archos's aftersales care and service is pretty extreme - but theres always the option not to buy the extra plugins etc. and if leaving it in the dock causes problems...
