Re: yay or nay to banding?

thats promising, i always liked the video on the 605, it never looked too "digital", and banding was never ever an issue

Re: Display issue with Archos 7 Home Tablet

16 million really should be plenty for great vid playback, really dunno wether to wait and see if custom firmwares help, or send it back asap

Re: Color Banding Test

if it really is the case that android 1.5 can only display 65000 colors (i though 1.6 could go to 16 million?) then its not really a very capable video player, and really shouldnt have been sold as one. and if its the case, then amazon is gettin a return from me any day now...

Re: Display issue with Archos 7 Home Tablet

im beginning to think this issue may be related to those who have at one point tried to use a custom firmware and then either stuck with it, or went back to stock. anyone out there who has never tried a custom firmware and still has these probs?

cheers

Re: Porting AOSP above 1.5 to A7HT

hi all, kudos to all involved here, truely inspiring stuff :-) one thing i curious about, i and a few others have noticed some pretty awful gradient banding on the 7HT, i did a few test images and it would appear the output certainly at times of the stock video player is close to only 256 colours. t...

Re: Color Banding Test

im using the original, so im afraid it does have the same probs. im wondering though....i did try the 0.27 then went back to stock, i wonder if the 0.27 has somehow altered something......that could explain why some users have no issues, if they have never used a custom firmware? just a thought.... ...

Re: Display issue with Archos 7 Home Tablet

the image i posted only contained 5000 colors, so it wasnt even displayin that amount which is terrible, when i reduced an image to 256 colors it was bang on the kind of banding im seeing. really quite worrying, i can see this unit being returned as not as advertised to be honest
