    Same problem. Manual recording is fine, but scheduled recording won't work, and it doesn't matter if it is in "Home Screen" or not.

    It was recording fine, although the tv guide is rubbish as only about 10 out of 100 channels show. Now it comes up with error every time I try to record!

  • babyboom54 Jan 27, 2008

    I have a 605 and I can't record manually either. And while I can do scheduled recording, I can't play back whatever does get recorded. I'm about ready to return mine to the store.

    same problem error shows when i try to record

  • aldoseven Feb 20, 2008

    I am having problems for scheduled recording. It just doesnt work. All the channels numbers match and the emitter set up worked fine the first time (it shut down the receiver). Once i schedule the device to record, it just records whatever is playing on TV at the moment no matter what i do. It just so frustrating to spend $500 on it and not get it to work. The support team just wants to get rid of you by saying do this and do that and if you have any problems call us back!!! What the hell kinf of troubleshooting is that???? I did a full reset too. Also, forgo to mention that it records in a very low volume. Do i need to keep the volume at minimum?

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.

My Archos 605 WiFi will not always switch my NTL (Samsung) set top box on to make a scheduled recording.It will however change it to the correct channel if the box is left switched on and make the...


I have partly solved the problem by leaving the box switched on (any channel) then when the programme is about to record Archos 606 WiFi will switch the cable box to the correct channel and record. It will not however turn the box off after recording this has to be done manually using the remote handset.
In the instruction manual for the Archos docking station there is a footnote saying that in very rare cases the On/Off function does not always work and I am wondering if the Samsung (NTL) Box is one of them. I cannot get a direct answer from Archos support team on this issue when I have sent numerous E-mails. According to the manual I am working on the correct code number for the Samsung (NTL) box.

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 cannot get my sons new Archos 605 to video from the tv. I feel like taking it back- what a waste of money!


I've had a similar problem. It finally started working though.....to a fashion.
I can now record the channel I am watching, but it does not record if the TV is switched off and I cannot get the scheduler to work at all.
When I first got mine 2 weeks ago, it would only record ITV, no matter what channel the TV was on.
Then on the 2nd day, it just seemed to kick in and whatever channel I put the TV on, the Archos displayed the corect channel.

No longer a tv picture to record on my 605 wifi passthrough device


have been onto technical support today with video recording problems and they have suggested that 1.7.13 may not be the best of firmware platforms, and that i install 1.7.06. Might be worth checking with them to see if you get similar advice.
