Question about Archos TV+ DTV Receiver / Video Recorder
Archos tv+ has constant red blinking light. Froze up after firmware upgrade to 2.1. Tried all manual recommended solutions. Won't turn on at all.
I know this was a while ago, but just in case you never fixed it, or someone else needs help with the same problem, here's a possible solution. I had this same problem recently, but didn't realise it was thanks to Archos's latest firmware being dodgy. I actually took the hard drive out at one point, put it in my PC and backed up all the contents. In fact, you simply press the TV button on the remote when the red light is blinking quickly. That takes you to a recovery menu, where you can attempt to repair or format the drive. If you hook it up a PC via USB, you should also be able to access everything on it to back it up.
Anyway, the repair and format options will tell you to connect your device to a PC, but that's just to load a firmware file onto the hard drive. You can just as easily put this file on a USB pen drive, though, and load it from there. You can get firmware files from http://www.archos.com/support/support_tech/updates.html?country=gb&lang=en&#firm. The latest one is there, but ignore that and install the previous version. Hopefully, that should get the TV+ booting again. It worked for me, anyway.
