They just decided to cancel the TV guide service.. one that I BOUGHT the 605 because of... I have started to try to gather names of people who bought the ARCHOS partially because of the TV Guide feature.... The customer service is non existent with this company.... go to Facebook and search Archos Doesnt care.... If we can get enough people together perhaps we can force a change...
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!
Did you ever get the cd to recognize the map code and load the software? Because after installation process software is taking yo to your archos account to register the product and then it will ask you the country for map and for creating a license file for your Archos. and that will allow you to get the desired map for the device.
I had the same problem as the archos web site is not the easiest to navigate.Have you actualy registered the product yet ?if so once logged in add your device as a product,on my products click on the picture of the 405 and that will take you to the screen for downloading archoslink (software to install the tv guide) and to the subscription page for down loading the tv guide.
How ever i have done all this and although i can download the guide i cannot sync it to my 405 so still unable to record off tv....Email gone to archos so fingers crossed....
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?
