    I have connected the archos 605 to the tv as shown in the diagram, but when it goes on the av channel i only get sound from my cable box and no picture so I cannot use it to record or watch on the tv, but when I press the tv button on the archos I get nothing at all. I have tried changing the channel settings on the archos but to no avail.



    Thanks-Jive

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.

Tv program guide will not update when connected through my dvr


The TV Program Guide is actually controlled by a 3rd party.
I registered my Archos at Archos.com when I bought it......I'm not sure how you'd stand with a 2nd hand one.
Basically, the website tells me that I only have 82 days left to my TV Program Guide 'subscription' and if I want it for another year, I have to pay £14.90GBP!
However, I can tell you that the Program Guide is pretty rubbish. All it does is let you record the SAME channel that your TV is showing. It does not record a different channel if you want to watch something else and if the TV is switched off, it doesn't record at all!!
Reading the manuals and the reviews on the Archos website, I was led to believe that it would do all of the above, but when I tried to get help from Archos Support, they basically told me that it doesn't do any of that!!
As much as it p'd me off, that is the only flaw I have found in the Archos and the other things it can do are quite amazing.
Try searching for 'Archos Forum' and check out some of the features - it is a remarkable machine!

    Samsung tv - archos 605 s-video greyed out on tv


    This sounds like you have the cable at the Archos end plugged in the normal video output - you need to plug the round end of the cable into the round socket on the DVR

    Archos 605 Wifi w/ Archos DVR Station Gen 5

    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!

    Archos 605 Pops/Hisses when connected to Wifi


    Contact Archos support and they can provide you the file to repair your disk. Once you have the file stored on your computer, you will then hook up your Archos via USB and copy the file they provide you to the root of the Archos.
    The direction I got when trying to fix my pop/hissing
    "If you power on the unit by pressing and holding the TV/LCD button and power button simultaneously the unit will boot into a recovery screen. Once in this screen choose "Repair Disk" and follow the on screen instructions.

    When prompted, please place the following file into the 'root directory' of
    the unit:

    http://update.archos.com/5/a605/a605_r2.1.04/firmware_a605.aos
    "

    Hope this helps.

    ARCHOS 605 WiFi - 120GB TV guide problem


    I had the same problem as you, after hours of browsing the frustrating archos website i simply deleted all the products from my account and then re-registered them. Turned out I'd simply put the serial number of my 605 incorrectly. Once re-registered, the tv-guide came up on my archos link software and updated it. Don't be too pleased though, when I did this about 98% of the channels just had "no information available" displayed on them on my Archos. Can anyone solve that?
