Hi

I've bought an AV 500 for recording from a 16 by 9 camera system but when played back the pictures have about 10% of the headroon cut off, i.e. are not true 16 by 9

This also happens when you play out to a tv

Am I doing something daft, or is this the way archos have made the device to suit the TFT screen which seems a little wider than it should be.

I'm using my AV500 on my Digi Betacam and no, it doesn't seem to cope with true 16X9..... pity.

Yup

Have tried everything... brilliant piece of kit but totally useless to me!

Anyone want to buy an archos with about 3 hours runtime?

Mike, NewMp3Technology suggest that those of us with true 16X9 framing requirements get together and badger Archos into fixing the problem in their next Firmware release. They said that we'll have to get our teath stuck in as Archos are indated with requests and as we know Archos has a useless customer service.
