Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Can you connect an archos 605 to a bell 9142 pvr

I have a bell 9142 pvr and am thinkingof purchasing a archos 605 or 705 so I can transfer saved programs on my pvr to the portable archos. I know I could likely just play and recod onto the archos, but the 9142 is supposed to be able to use a USB hard drive (which I believe the archos contains) If i rip the files trhough the usb would I be able to watch on my archos?

    Archos does not connect to content portal


    I believe that archos cut it's support to the 5 gen series ( 405, 605, and 705). I say this because they took all of those devices off their website.

    Just got Archos 5 goes into error 101...


    Hi there, these instructions are for the archos 705 but they are the same for the 605.

    A) Download the firmware from Archos and save it to your desktop (Make sure the file name on the desktop hasn't changed from the original download file name)

    B) The Archos 705:
    1- Connect the unit to its power source.
    2- Start the unit in recovery mode: Press the TV button first then the power on/off and keep pressing TV button (do not release it)
    3- The recovery mode will start (the screen that asks for repair or format etc…)
    4- Select "Repair" by scrolling up and down with the TV Button (it is all explained to move through the menu at the top of the Archos screen) (Do not press "Format" at any time)
    5- Now that you are on "Repair" select it to validate your selection
    6- The unit will go to "Plug the unit etc…" plug it with the USB cable to the computer
    8- Wait until Pc should recognizes your Archos (around 5 seconds)

    C) Computer
    1- From your computer select the firmware file you downloaded from the net and put it in your Archos (in the root folder, nowhere else, where it has the folders, music, videos, pictures etc… as a file)

    D) On the Archos 705:
    1- Select "Ok" on the Archos (on & off button) shortly to select and confirm the file is now on the Archos
    2- you are done! The Archos 705 should now read through the file you have transferred and repair the system
    3- DO NOT DISCONNECT the power cable until the process is finished
    4- When done safely disconnect (as you usually do, for Mac trash the letter of the Archos to the bin or for PC's: right click the green icon bottom right of the screen for xp & vista)
    5- Press on/off button to reboot

    Your unit should restart with a fresh repaired, updated system like day one.
    Good luck!

    Battery difference between archos 704 and 705 (wifi) ?


    I use the same batteries in both units. The only difference is the colour of the back plate and the label on the inside. Clone and extended batteries are different backs anyway.

    DVR to Archos


    Hi,

    That's what the DVR does. All you need to do is play whatever program you would like on your cablebox/DVR and hit record on your archos. It will record it like any program.

    Archos 605 copying films from DVD to the player


    If change the setting of the 605 to "hard disk" then a PC sees the 605 as a hard disc when connected using the usb lead. You can then copy and paste files directly to the 605..
