Subject: Re: Firmware for AV300 Series

What is aVOS?
Is that better firmware for the video models of the Archos products?
If so, I would be interested in having the speech menus implemented here
too, as I just bought my wife a 20 GB multi-media unit, and if I ever need
to use it, I would like to have the same kind of access.

Avos primary aim is to port Linux to the AV/MM units. I hope to use the
hardware information gathered by the Avos team to make Rockbox run on these
players. For this purpose, I have bought an AV340.

Everyone who is interested in helping is invited.



Is there any update on when a version of Rockbox might be available for the AV300 series?

2004 :o) 2005 :o() 2006 :o( !!!

Just trying to decide if/when to buy an AV340 and I assume I will be much happier if it runs rockbox. Can't believe what a differenec rockbox has made to my jbr!!

Keep up the good work.
