Archos 5 Mini-Video/USB Dock and Firmware 1.3

Posted on 17 November 2009, Last updated on 10 June 2018 by

archos5dockWhat a hectic few hours!  I’ve had DHL at the door with the Archos 5 Mini Dock, a tweet from Pocketables alerting me that the new firmware is available and the whole lot has been captured in a video. I’ll say no more than this:

  • Mini-dock = Bargain!
  • YouTube HD on TV = Fantastic!
  • IR RF keyboard and mouse = Total TV laziness.
  • Mini keyboard and mouse = Mini ‘Web’ PC under 500gm and 300 Euro!

It looks like some hard drives with no external power won’t work but I tested a few USB SD-card adaptors and it worked fine. Questions remain over 3G sticks.

As for the firmware, there are a lot of improvements. Check the updates page for details.

Update: TV interference is purely due to trying to record a CRT. For a better look at TV-out put using an HDMI dock, Check out Charbax’s video here.
