    Same here - DVR was originally setup correctly with the 605 - recorded a few shows from DVR - Unpluged from DVR to take on road trip - Videos played fine on the Archos alone - returned home. Now when docked again in original DVR - video not displaying on TV - won't make the switch to TV - however, TV signal flows correctly through DVR - power to DVR looks fine - Just red light on Archos when switching to TV - no output - DVR power working ok - cable hook-up not changed since first successful DVR recording - what do you think??

    Hi, i had the same problem of the second user.
    I watched reagulary all the videos in the Archos 605 on the tv for months. Then, one day, without touching any cable connection, i couldn't see videos on the tv. The red light is on, so all powers, to be sure I checked all the cable connection, i changed them, and so on.
    After many tries i find out that the problem must be with the DVR station or with the firmware version i installed some days before this event, i have the 1.8.07, what can I do?
    Thanks a lot for any kind of answer.

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.

Copying Video from archos 605 wifi to computer


I think the Archos 605 has a 2gb file limit, so the only option would be to split the avi.
Search on Google for an avi splitter - there are some free ones out there.

    RCA cables and Home Movie Question


    I have had my 605 for a week. The first thing I noticed is that all cables and connectors are special. No way to hook up standard RCA cabling to your TV. I have an AV 500 that is about three years old. Even the cables from it will not work with the 605. It seems that 605 was designed to cause us to buy additional equipment and add-ons. We can't even replace the battery, and its life is very poor; just over two hours!!

    Also, I registered my product and got a password for their site. I have sent two questions to their service. Both time I was promised a reply in two days. I have heard nothing at all!! NOTHING! I am starting to wonder!!!

    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!

    I have an Archos 605 WiFi. I haven't yet connected my Archos docking station to the TV and HDD. Meanwhile, I thought I would copy a programme from the HDD to a DVD, then put the DVD in the computer and...


    What kind of HDD do you have, do you have any type of output on it. You stated that you haven't connected the docking station to it and the TV...? The best thing to do is to connect your Archos to the Docking station. Set the docking station up correctly, with cables coming out of the HDD (if it has some sort of output) to the station and out of the station to your TV. Once you set that up, you can use the Archos as a mini DVR or VCR. Go to the REC option on the main screen of Archos, you'll have an option for Video Recorder (tab on top). If you play any source on the HDD, then all you have to do is press the Rec option on the Archos. If you already have a file on the HDD, then try just moving it over into the Archos once you connect the Docking station to your computer via USB or just use the USB cable connected to the computer with the HDD. I use the USB preference as Windows Media Device. (found under menu/settings/system). Is is basically a HDD itself. Remember the Archos will only play certain videos without the purchase of any extra plugins.
    Good Luck
