On your Archos 5 go into tools -> Files and you should have two Archos 5 tabs. Change one to your USB stick and the other to the Archos 5 and copy and paste. I have not tested this, but this should work.  Good Luck.

    I just did it with my Archos 5, DVR and USB drive and posted the instructions on my blog. Please let me know if this works for you. (There is no paste. That was the problem)

Record xbox to archos 604


The dvr station must sit in the middle of the signal transfer from the box to the tv, so connect the Xbox to the dvr station and then connect the dvr station to the tv. You will have to enaure that the DVR station is always powered on so that the signal will pass through it. to record simply select the record option on the 604

Archos 604(Gen 4), Remote(Archos DVR Station Gen 5) Work or not?


If you mean will the Gen 5 DVR Station Remote work with a Gen 4 DVR Station, I believe it will for at least the basic player controls on your 604 (except for the alpha keyoard entry because the Gen 4 players did not have this feature enabled).

If you mean, will the Gen 5 DVR Station Remote control your Archos 604 directly (without a dvr dock), the answer is no, you must have a DVR Station for the remote to work on any Archos player.

Hope this helps.

Use Windows media center as a go between if you have the capability. I would not expect that much functionality from the Archos. The extra step will save time in the long run. There is a usb port on the DVR station. Haven't really tried to utilize it, yet. It does recognize a thumb drive when plugged in. I just wouldn't expect you will get the same ease of operation as using media ctr.

    Can I pre record on the archos 605 wi fi 30gb


    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:
    http://www.archos.com/support/download/manuals/connection_guide_dvr_station_v1.1.pdf

    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:
    http://www.archos.com/support/download/manuals/english_user_manual_dvr_station_gen5_v3.pdf

    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!

    Archos DVR Station & 605 wifi PMP


    Not sure if this will help you or not, but I have a 404 and was having issues with the scheduler changing the channels for me also. Then I realized that it is a infrared transmitter - the same frequency as a remote I realized what I was doing wrong - Your archos station must be facing the cable box that it is turning on. I had my archos on top of the cable box and it was not working - but when I turned the cable box and the archos station to face each other - so the signal can transfer - it worked just fine. Hope that helps!

    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.
