  • 1. Need help on choosing between HP iPAQ 2210 and HP iPAQ hx4700
    Hi, I'm thinking about buying either an HP iPAQ 2210/2215 or an HP iPAQ hx4700. Besides the better display the hx4700 has WiFi built in already, the 2210 can be upgraded with an appropriate card. The hx4700 has USB 2.0, the 2210 has USB 1.1. The hx4700 has a touchpad, which - I read - most users don?t like all that much. The hx4700 is somewhat bigger than the 2210. Of course, the HP iPAQ hx4700 is a lot more expensive than the HP iPAQ 2210, so I wonder whether the hx 4700 pros are really worth the money. Have I overlooked any other important differences? How do the two iPAQs compare as far as the capability to be upgraded is concerned? Peter
  • 2. The right stuff (Connection Settings Help)
    Okay, I have a Windows 2003 Box at home (Student) running RRAS. I also have a Dell Axim x30. What I'd like to do is set it up so that I can VPN home (which is already working for my laptop) then active sync. For whatever reason my Jornada could not Active Sync with my 2003 box, if I connected via VPN, it would start to connect, then get a protocol error. I dunno if this is related to Async and VPN server being the same box or what. However I can't figure out what settings I need interms of Work and Internet Wireless Networks, to get it to VPN. Now lets say I'm at 'my work' or 'school' or even a 'hotspot' I beieleve that these wireless profiles should be set to internet right, and that only my home wlan should be set to work. Then when I try to activesync it should VPN home right? Or do I have that backwards or just plain wrong. Steve R
  • 3. New SW is awesome remote
    Hi folks, I've tried a few options to remotely control my laptop from my iPAQ, first from my 5555 and now from my 4705. I've had varying degrees of success until now. I have absolutely perfect control via wifi using PPC Tablet Remote Control Suite I'm a biology professor and do all of my lectures via PowerPoint and an interactive classroom system. This lets me customize different control template screens as needed. PowerPoint control template comes predone with Nex/Prev slide, show pen, white/black screen, show pointer, show pen, start/stop slideshow... Tap out to tablet and you are moving the mouse along the screen complete with screen taps for right/left clicks. It's BETTER than being at the touchpad of my computer If you have ANY need to stand across the room or lean back in your chair to control your primary computer this thing is awesome! The developer is I had a problem with a bad zip file from Handango and he solved it with an immediate emailed replacement. GREAT support for an awesome control suite. If this sounds even remotely helpful (sorry, pun not intened) to you take a look at the trial version on Handango. $0.02 Terry
  • 4. Can I make a separate folder on SDcard that is in PPC
    oKAY, here is the question, I have a 256 card, when I transfer a file to the card through activesync, it often runs a file convertsion, which is great if I want to look at it on the PPC but sometimes I don't want the formats to be changed and I don't want to look at it on the PPC anyway, can I create a folder on the storage card that does not use activesync to transfer or rather is there a way to just drag and drop a file onto the new folder.????

Hello, maybe this sound a silly question, but I want to know whether there
are ways to solve it. You know in the today screen there are lines separating
the owner's info, calendar, task, time and etc. Sometimes the lines disappear
and make the today screen looks ugly and messy. why is this happening? Is
there a ways to solve it? Or is just me have this problem?

The ultimate truth about human 
is that they are deeply the same
but obviously different.

I complained about this before on Pocket PC 2002, and couldn't find a cure.
I haven't noticed on Windows Mobile 2003 though.

>Hello, maybe this sound a silly question, but I want to know whether there

The builtin applets usually behave properly, almost all third-party
applets occasionally cause this effect. It is most notable when there
are more than one third-party applets on the Today screen.

The problem seems to be that the programming interface in the Pocket
PC does not behave identically at all time. I've looked at programming
samples from Microsoft without seeing differences in how they program
it and even the applets from highly respected software authors are
showing this problem.

There is no real solution that I'm aware of, unfortunately.

4.Ipaq 3765 screen with lines

I received an old 3765 and the screen lights up but just show horizontal 
and vertical lines. The unit will sync, but I cannot see the screen. The 
screen does light up and does not look as if it is broken. Any ideas?

5.Vertical Lines on display screen

I have an older pocket pc - HP660LX - that works fine except for vertical
lines showing through any color on the screen. On the desktop (that tealish
color) the lines go from one side to the other but in an app where the
background is white, the lines are only visible through anything that isn't

I have replaced the backup battery, have done a soft reset and a hard reset
but no change.

Is this a loose connection problem somewhere or is there a factory type
reset i could do or am I plain out of luck?
