Question about Archos 605 WiFi Digital Media Player

TV Scheduler not turning on Cable Box

It seems that after I upgraded my Archos 605 firmware to ver 1.7.13, my device is no longer turning on the cable box to begin recording. It works fine when I manually test the IR code - any clues? Thanks in advance.

    here is the answer from Archos Support, it worked for me...



    Turn the device completely off and hold down the Power and LCD/TV button down

    until the repair options show. This will walk you through the repair. This

    will help to re-flash the firmware and make sure it runs correctly.

I have the same problem and it won't change channels after the 1st program. I just leave the cable box on. This is not the best answer but it works for now.

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!

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.

Yes you can download music from the net
No you can't use it as a word processor (not yet anyway)
Widgets are not yet available - they are due any time now

Check you have the output from the cable box to the input on the docking station and the output from the docking station to the input on the TV. Double check all your connections. If in doubt, rip them all out and start over. Once connected you will have to set the TV to one of the Aux channels to see the content and ensure you hit the TV button on the Archos to push the output to the TV.
