    How to Get Warranty Repairs?

    Thanks for the suggestion, but ASUS is on the job. DUH! On emailing their support... "We will get back to you promptly." Waited FOUR DAYS and viola, they think they have fixed the problem... "please make sure your device is up to date." No way to elevate the issue. {sigh} I quit with ASUS!

    How to Get Warranty Repairs?

    Hi people, My Memo pad touch-system has been getting worse and worse. At first I thought it might just be the netflix app as their programming is pretty awful at best. However this morning is was using a note book app and had the same issue. To get the touch to work each time I have to reorient...

    Anyone Using Miracast Compatible Dongles?

    Once again, answering my own threads. I found an app for the HD7, FLIPPS that works kind of. It tosses plenty of errors but if you just try again, most times it will cast the video. Now, one problem with FLIPPS is that it seems impossible to stop the casting once something is running on the TV...

    Anyone Using Miracast Compatible Dongles?

    Hi All, I bought an iPazzPort_Cast dongle for 25-bucks. I followed the onscreen instructions and get it to connect to my PC and I can see pics and video files from the PC on my TV, but neither mode (DLNA/Miracast) will work with the HD7. I have not found a Miracast app in the Play store but...

    Any successful Roots?

    Hi, this probably should go in the new "Asus MeMO Pad HD7" forum, but thought I would ask here for a wider audience as Roots for other ASUS models may have the HD7 in their list too. I am tired of apps starting themselves up and messing with the video streaming bandwidth. Out in the boonies...

    Run apps from SD card??

    Hi all, Still liking this HD7 but wonder if there is any way to run apps from the SD card. I have moved a bunch of games and shopping list to the SDcard and other than "Move to Tablet" I cannot see any way to run them. Possible? Thoughts and suggestions? Thanks

    Memo 7HD Dual Band WiFi?

    Yup, possible. It also leads to suspicion with "trusted" reviews... ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 review: a budget tablet that punches above its weight To quote, "The HD 7 covers basic wireless with dual-band 802.11n WiFi" ..and quite a few others. Seemed like it was worth a try since the ASUS website...

    Memo 7HD Dual Band WiFi?

    Bummer. New N600 modem shows dual-band on the Kindle 7HD, but only single band on the ASUS. Got my answer, but it cost me to find out for sure. I guess I could send the modem back as the old one is single band and I don't use the Fire any more. But, will keep it as is. The chromecast seems...

    Stop Google Taking Over MeMO 7HD

    In case anyone is interested, I was able to wrest control from google. To do so I had to assign Developer status and then I could go into the Apps section and Force Stop and Disable pretty much anything I wanted. To get to Developer status, go to Settings About Tablet Build number Quickly tap...

    Win8 Can't See the Memo 7HD

    OK, problem solved. I was using the USB cable that came with the chromecast. In desperation to find out why it would not connect, I finally swapped it for another one and then win8 could see it. Google must have used the 5th connector on the micro-USB. {sigh}

    Win8 Can't See the Memo 7HD

    Hi, Do I need to do anything special for win8 to see the USB cable plugged in? I need to side load some data files from my old Palm Visor. When I plugged the USB cable in, a black block flashed on the screen of the 7HD, but win8 doesn't see anything. The wifi IP connection for the 7HD shows up...

    Stop Google Taking Over MeMO 7HD

    Nah, well, yeah. They will be permanent gifts to them. Grandparents are expected to spoil grand-kids. :)

    Memo 7HD Dual Band WiFi?

    Thanks Spider, I found a few reviews on line that mentioned dual band and the ASUS Specifications don't say if it is or not as I can't find a frequency spec for them. I have ordered a dual band modem/router so will see when that gets here if stuff happens faster or not. The chromecast thing...

    Memo 7HD Dual Band WiFi?

    Hi All, Just got a chromecast, awesome piece of equipment. Software (both Google and Netflix) is still quite buggy both the apps and in the chrome browser and Youtube app, but still an amazing piece of work. It can only get better with firmware updates. I had trouble setting it up as I think...
