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.

I have an archos 404. i have a dvr station as well. How do i get my movies from my archos to play on my tv?


The Archos 404 attaches to the TV using either a DVR Station or a special AV cable. The AV cable uses a special small audio-style mini plug on one end to the standard red, white and yellow composite video connectors on the other.The docking station can record from and playback to the TV. The DVR Station 5 uses S-Video and red/white RCA plugs for connection to the TV. Optionally you can use the yellow/red/white composite connections instead. Hook it up similarly to a VCR, input from the cable box to the input of the DVR Station and output of the DVR Station to the input of the TV.

Xbox 360 does not have supports for m2ts/mts files as PS3 does, so if you have the needs of watching your Sony, Canon, etc. AVCHD camcorder captured footages on your wide screen TV through your Xbox 360 console, format conversion is essential. This article aims to give you a simple and effective solution for playback m2ts/mts files on Xbox 360. There you go:
