Go to the DISPLAY folder on the Archos player. Scroll to Video Output. Swiitch Internal LCD to External and then switch video input on your TV.(Video 1,Video 2 CH 3 etc..) You may have to try various settings. Also, in the DISPLAY folder,scroll to External Display and set to Composite(red/white/yellow) or Component or SVideo depending on which connection you use.

If you are using an Archos cable, when you plug in to the tv, you should switch to the video 1 or line in source, probably using your tv remote labeled "input"

I CAN RECORD FROM MY TV BUT I CANT GET MY ARCHOS 5 TO SHOW ON THE TV ,WHEN I PLUG MY ARCHOS INTO THE DVR STATION THE OPTION TO SET IT UP FOR TV DOES NOT COME UP . I WOULD BE VERY GREAT FULL FOR ANY HELP,...


You should swtch your TV to the video mode on to the video output chosen for the device. Check the video connecion type by following the output cables from the DVR station or charging dock to to TV. it could be video 1, 2, 3 HDMI, Color stream HD1 , Color stream HD 2, by scrolling down on the video mode list you should get the picture on on of them with correct video mode. or like i was saying follow the output cable from dvr station to Tv to see which video mode it was connected.

Stuck on the ARCHOS Screen and it won't do any thing


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 5 or 7 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!

My archos 604 won't play on my television.


Hi,when you connect it to TV,I believe you switch to AV mode on TV to allow signal to be shown on TV,do you ??.
If you did it but no video ,than make sure your AV cable should go all the way down on the plug on Archos.it is a fancy plug sometimes stays out half way

MININ DV TO ARCHOS


Hi,

Initially, it would work better if you can provide the specific model numbers of the Sony Mini DV Cam and the Archos. Assuming all things even, most DV cameras have an analog A/V video OUT, in turn some Archos with recording capability have an analog A/V video IN. If this were the case, then it would be a matter of getting the right connectors/plugs + cable and/or adapter/interface.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Archos 604 (not WiFi) connection to TV without the DVR station


HI, bought the following off ebay and they worked just fine. I to thought that the socket on the right side was audio only. Can't get a picture via my DVR (may be a fault) however this item works great.

1. Connect the archos to the TV ( using the 3 leads red/yellow/white into the TV or DVD player) and the other end of the lad, a single jack into the back of the archos mini set-top box. Plug the single jack into the "RV Output". 2. Then start playing a movie on the archos. 3. Then press down on the flat silver button on the top of the archos device. Your screen should turn black/blank. This means your sending your movie to your TV. 4. Tune your TV to find the Archos movie in the same way you would tune your TV to find another pay TV set-top box ( like cable TV or Satelite). Problem solved. 
You can use the same steps to send archos music to your steroe. Just plug the audio leads (white & red) into your stereo instead of your TV.
