Playback on TV is in black and white

When I try to watch any videos/photos etc from my archos via my TV they are always in black and white. We do get the sound but just no colour. I have a Sony Bravia 42" LCD TV. What am I doing wrong please? any suggestions much appreciated. Thank you

Playback quality of 605 WIFI Video demo is much superior than the quality of downloaded movies. Has anyone else experienced this and is there a solution to improve video playback quality. I am using S video connection with the cinema widget.

Only had my device for a few days now and dont actually have the tv dock yet. However I'm gonna assume you have to go into the display settings from archos. Worth taking a look guys!!

Having problems gettin sky channels through archos i get to setting infrared settings and can not get code.dont know wether to connect dvr t the tv or the sky box


Remove the DVR station from the box, and attach the DVR adapter plate (found in the
DEVICE box); it is correctly attached when it clicks on.
-Take the Black Audio/video Marked "output" cable, and insert the connections into the corresponding coloured sockets, yellow>yellow, green> green etc. Make sure they are
inserted into the TOP row on the back of the DVR Station "Marked Out". The remaining
black connector should be plugged into the SW socket, which can be found underneath
the orange socket on the back of the DVR station. (If after setting up your ARCHOS the
picture is very green remove the black cable from the SW socket)
-Plug the SCART connector into the SCART socket on your TV set. These are usually
marked AV1, AV2, or Ext 1, Ext 2, L1, L2, Line in 1, Line in 2, Aux 1, Aux 2, make sure you
select the corresponding channel above (ie AV1 AV2 etc) on your TV set when you turn on
the TV.
-Attach the UK plug adapter to the Mains charger, and plug the charger into the DC-In
socket on the back right of the DVR station. Turn the mains on at the socket.
-Insert the powered off ARCHOS unit onto the DVR station, the unit will now power on,
and ask if you want to 'Switch to TV out', select 'Okay'. The 'TV output configuration' set
up will load up. Select 'Okay'.
-TV connection: When your DEVICE is connected to the optional DVR Station you need to
select the type of video output (Composite, S-video, component, RGB, HDMI etc), based
on how you have connected the DVR Station to your TV and what possibilities your TV will
allow. For the cables supplied and the instructions aboce you will need to select either
RGB or Composite. Use the arrows to go through the options and select either RGB or
Composite.
-TV Standard: this should be set to PAL (Europe). Select 'Next'.
-Now you need to test the settings, select 'Okay', the ARCHOS home screen should now
be visible on your TV set. If you have nothing showing on your TV, scroll through the
AV/Ext channels, the channel will correspond to the AV/Ext socket you connected the
cable to on your TV set. Use the ARCHOS remote to select 'Okay'; you have now set up
the output connection settings for your DVR station.
-You may need to adjust your output from the ARCHOS to match your TV, from the "TV
Format" options. Use the arrows on the ARCHOS remote to select the format of your TV
screen, so the ARCHOS unit outputs the correct picture size (ie 4:3 / 16:9 etc). Use the
arrows on the remote to select 'Next'.

Record xbox to archos 604


The dvr station must sit in the middle of the signal transfer from the box to the tv, so connect the Xbox to the dvr station and then connect the dvr station to the tv. You will have to enaure that the DVR station is always powered on so that the signal will pass through it. to record simply select the record option on the 604

hi i found my own soulution for recording i will tell you an easy way fist of all you need another freeview box only connect this to your archos and have the other box connected like normal to your tv and place your archos and other box near your tv buy a 2 way splitter from wilkinsons and connect this where your ariel box is probably near the window and get another tv lead to reach your freeview box for the archos this means you have a connection running from the tv box for your normal tv and f box and another for the archos and f box cos of the 2 way splitter you can then record on the archos from the f box and watch another channel on your tv then playback later what you recorded of your archos on your big tv please let me know if you sort this and let me no if you get stuck its great when you get it all set up and it works thanks.
