Hi folks. Howdy.

I've just finished with the purchase of my new apartment. I have started with the flooring & interior civil work for now.

I need to plan the electrical wiring of my new house. The house includes four bedrooms & two living rooms. I need all rooms to have a broadband connection that can used for accessing by plugging a laptop. One bedroom would have a desktop. There shall be two broadband connections provided by the local cable operator. I need these connections to be accessible in all 4 bedrooms by means of an ethernet cable & in the 2 living rooms (one above the other, separated by a floor) by Wi-Fi. I plan to keep two Wi-Fi routers respectively in the living rooms for wireless access.

To begin with, what sort of cables should be used to distribute the broadbands to all rooms? Secondly what hardware would be best for me wherein the two broadband connections (from the cable operator) would be plugged in, which in turn would be distributed to all rooms? By saying hardware, I mean a gadget similar in lines of an EPABX system that distributes one or more telephone lines to multiple locations. Here instead of telephone its broadband.

I also wish to have site filters, parental controls & the provision to block internet access to any room at anytime.

Please guide me here. Thanks.

Hi folks… This is my first post here.

I purchased the Archos AV500 two months ago. The device is in the default “Windows device” mode.

I rip my Audio Cds using Windows Media player 10 & DVDs using Xilisoft DVD ripper.

I synchronise both MP3 files & MP4 files onto the AV500 using Windows Media player 10. When synchronising MP3 audio files, the synchronising often gets stalled & after a long duration, I get an annoying message "The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request." mad.gif

This message appears & it holds up the entire synchronisation process for a long time before exiting the process finally. This happens only when uploading MP3 files ripped from CDs. & not when synchronising Mpeg4 files.

I sent an email to Archos Technical support seeking help and got the following reply:

Dear Customer,

Connect your device to the PC, and then defragment its hard drive.
After that run a scandisk on the hard drive of the device, and also perform
a "chkdsk" on it from the PC command box. You can have more informations
about this on the device's manual.

Kind Regards,
Archos Technical Support

I did the above but to no avail. I even formatted my player using the format option within the player & again tried resynchronising all the data. The problem still perisits. If I switch the device to “Hard Drive” mode, the synchronisation takes place smoothly, but I don’t get the Album picture displayed on the LCD screen during playback. sad.gif

Please help me with a suitable solution.

Thanks in advance.

The album cover on the right doesn't appear when the device is synchronised using the "Hard Drive" mode.
