Archos 4.3 Internet Tablet 8gb Media Device
on January 13, 2017
I am waiting for an actual small Android device. My purpose mainly was to use blue tooth and on line radio. I am not inept at computer technology, and can follow instructions pretty easily, but this device is hard to understand why the google play store will not download. Youtube videos will not play even from the browser offered. Firmware is/was updated, but still not getting the full benefit from the device. Any videos I do play are ones I have moved from the computer to the Archos device.
One question raised was - when hdmi connector is attached to tv can the headphone jack still be used?
It took me a bit to figure out how to even connect the hdmi connector, apparently I didn't have it in all the way the first time and no connection was being made, I actually had to use force to get it in all the way. I plugged in my ear buds into the Archos, listened there while watching on TV. When you remove the earbuds, the sound comes out of TV
The instructions also tell you to use the Archos screen on device to move the curser around on TV.
It does a little less than I expected it to, so kind of disappointed as it is basically a fancy mp3/mp4 device.
I only paid about $80 for it, and not the $200 plus.
Gave it one more star, as I was able to get a Youtube app to work, I used the French Youtube app, and it lets me watch even my own Youtube videos - even when connected to the tv.
And, I was able to download a radio app, so now I can move about the house and listen to music without bothering anyone else.
