I have a sony mp3 walkman i can connect the usb to the side of my tv and it will play my music files etc but when i connect it next to the sky viewing card on my sky hd box it says no connected devices...

Sky put the USB ports on the boxes in case they wanted to use them in future. They are there but not active.
Bit like the eSATA socket on the back, it isn't used yet but they had ideas to use it!

I guess if they had to replace boxes all over the country to put a USB in would have been a bit of an issue for them, so best they fitted one from the start...

Unable to load MP# files from memory stick on to iPod

You should go to and downlaod limewire and manually download each song and it'll help you have the music in your i-pod. Yoy can also open i-tunes and connect your i-pod home of your i-pod and check the box that says manually manage songs but that will erase the music you have in the i-pod but will allow you to put the mp3 files on the i-pod.

Archos 605 Wifi w/ Archos DVR Station Gen 5

You have posed a very good question with a very complicated answer. There are two things you MUST have in order to do what you are asking:
1) Your "docking station" cannot be the Archos mini-dock, b/c the mini dock has inputs only. Your docking station must be the Archos DVR Station - Gen 5.
2) You have to have a digital cable box, FIOS, or digital satellite box.

You will be recording from your cable, satellite, or FIOS box instead of directly from your TV. Hook the red, white, and yellow cable from one of the red, white and yellow outputs of your cable/sat/FIOS box to the specialized adapter of the DVR Station (make sure your Archos 605 is properly docked inside). Here is a link to the connection guide if you don't have it:

Once the connection is set up, you must follow the exact directions printed on pp.11-15 of the DVR Station user manual - it will require downloading several pieces of software. My only reccomendation is that you make sure that the Archos 605 is fully charged before proceeding, b/c if it loses power during the process, you may ruin your mp3 player. Here is a link to the DVR Station user manual:

If you have followed the instructions exactly, you will be able to schedule your recordings to your Archos 605.

There are two catches that I noticed with this player - 1 major and one not-so major:
1) Not-so major: Your subscription to the TV guide that enables you to schedule recordings will only be free for 1 year
2) Major: The DVR Station forces you to choose between an NTSC and a PAL format when choosing a TV standard for playback. PAL is only for Europe, so never select it under any circumstances. NTSC is shutting down on February 17, 2009 - in a little more than a month. After that time, you may not be able to display the recordings that you have made to your TV itself.

Good luck!

Dvr docking station

I had the problem that the record feature was not available in or out of the docking station and therefore i could not record. Archos connector on bottom of unit senses a change in the resistance of the device it's docked with and knows if it's the DVR station or not.

Turned out to be a hardware fault - i had to RMA both the Archos and the docking station (while in warranty) and Archos fixed it/them.

That may not help you much.

PS: I think i zapped my DVR station with static one day and that might have been the original cause.

Tevion 4GB MP4 player compatible with I-Pod accessories???

I dont have an ipod to compare it to, but I thnk that ipods use a dock connector, the tevion mp4 player has a mini usb, the kind you usualy find on a digital camera. I might be wrong about this, as there are different types of ipod, so there might be ones that also have usb connectors as well.

Any accessories you purchase have to be designed to plug into a mini usb, so just make sure you check what type of connections your accessories have before buying them.

Alternatively, there are adapter cables out there, ipod docking ones to usb, and usb to mini usb, so it would be possible to rig connections up, they wouldnt look pretty though.

Can only record in black & white?

try changing your Display/ TV Connection setting under the setting menu - it may need to be set to "composite" (not RGB) if connected as displayed in the instruction manual - worked for me anyway (hope it does you).
