    Same problem, but think I should be using the 7 lead to scart cable these sell on line for about £13. I purchased my Archos 605 + DVR Dock etc from the USA so the leads only came with yellow red and white-vid and audio only. The European version requires component(rgb)+composite(yrw) plus another black sw one?



    If anyone has any futher information on this I would welcome your opinions.

    I've gone through 4 dvr stations and have sent them all back to Archos for warranty. They come back working, then fail after about 3 months. Now I have 4 non working dvr stations. The remotes work while the 605 is on the station, but when you send the image or video to the TV the screen is black but no signal to the RCA connectors on the station. I'm trying to find out what keeps failing so I can fix it myself. All my stations are now out of warranty. Unit still works great, but no watchin on TV at all.

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'.

SOunds like a problem with the connection between the dvr station and the tv. Ensure all connections are insered fully and dust free. Also ensure that you have set the output signal to PAL if using in Europe - do this via the setup menu

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

I CAN RECORD FROM MY TV BUT I CANT GET MY ARCHOS 5 TO SHOW ON THE TV ,WHEN I PLUG MY ARCHOS INTO THE DVR STATION THE OPTION TO SET IT UP FOR TV DOES NOT COME UP . I WOULD BE VERY GREAT FULL FOR ANY HELP,...


You should swtch your TV to the video mode on to the video output chosen for the device. Check the video connecion type by following the output cables from the DVR station or charging dock to to TV. it could be video 1, 2, 3 HDMI, Color stream HD1 , Color stream HD 2, by scrolling down on the video mode list you should get the picture on on of them with correct video mode. or like i was saying follow the output cable from dvr station to Tv to see which video mode it was connected.

Can I pre record on the archos 605 wi fi 30gb


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 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!

Can only record in black & white?


try changing your Display/ TV Connection setting under the setting menu - it may need to be set to "composite" (not RGB) if connected as displayed in the instruction manual - worked for me anyway (hope it does you).

Archos 604 dvr blank screen


It sounds to me like there's an Component A/V cable issue. Please re-check the cable connections making sure they are connected correctly. When using the docking station and Component A/V cables you must be sure the cables are connected with their corresponding colors on the back of the DVR Docking Station. Also check that the format of the recording is compatible with the "TV Standard" in the settings menu of your Archos. It will be either NTSC (USA) or PAL (Europe). Be sure to check the Video Output Settings of the Archos to be sure it is set to the same type of cables you are using- component, RGB, s-video or composite. Good luck!

Simply said you require a DVR station or Audio/Video travel cable. On the DVR just simply plug in your composite cable from OUT the satellite/cable box or whichever source your recording from to IN on the DVR station. The a/v travel cable is a little easier to hook up. Then just select the VideoCorder icon.
