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

Dvr docking station


I had the problem that the record feature was not available in or out of the docking station and therefore i could not record. Archos connector on bottom of unit senses a change in the resistance of the device it's docked with and knows if it's the DVR station or not.

Turned out to be a hardware fault - i had to RMA both the Archos and the docking station (while in warranty) and Archos fixed it/them.

That may not help you much.

PS: I think i zapped my DVR station with static one day and that might have been the original cause.

Archos want work


Sounds like a disk problem. This might work for you ...

Power off the unit

[Optional step - remove battery and use a pen to push the reset button]

HOLD down the LOCK/TV-LCD button as you press the POWER button until the unit starts to come on.

You should should get options to recover the disk (try this first) or format the unit (try this last).

If that doesn't work i would follow the procedure of reseating the HDD connection - see solution for Recovery error code 2 problem.

MININ DV TO ARCHOS


Hi,

Initially, it would work better if you can provide the specific model numbers of the Sony Mini DV Cam and the Archos. Assuming all things even, most DV cameras have an analog A/V video OUT, in turn some Archos with recording capability have an analog A/V video IN. If this were the case, then it would be a matter of getting the right connectors/plugs + cable and/or adapter/interface.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have an Archos 605, and have also purchased the console to connect it to my tv. This console has a USB connection, and the instructions say that I can connect my external HDD to it, and view this using...


Here's what you do.
Make sure that you can play one of the sample videos to your TV. Next, stop and go to the home screen.
Next, if your external HD has a powersource, plug that into the wall and the device so that it has power. Next plug the usb cable into the side of the DVR Station. The device screen (or the tv if you are still on tv out) should say, external device connecting. It will show the double browser screen and then just go to the file desired and click on OK. If the device doesnt recgnize and mount the external hd, could be because there is not enough power to the ext. HD or the HD is formatted in somehting other than fat32.

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
