    We have an Archos 605 wifi too (without any wifi network). We also have DVR series 5 and thought we registered both together. We have been told that this was not the case (both are registered but the DVR although registered, is not showing and we can't down load the television guide).When we try to re-register on the Archos website we're told it's already registered. Any solution

Unable to download TV guide for almost a year to the Archos 605 WiFi. Has anyone come up with any ideas to create a program. I would pay to have it.


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...

Hi.. i have an archos gen 5.. for the 1st year i could record from the tv listing for free. now that year is up and i can't seem to find out how i can get the tv listing to upgrade. so i can start...


Go to www.archos.com
My Account - and logon
Manage Products
Product Services
Scroll down to TV Program Guide available for owners of DVR Station Gen 5 and press Update

That will take you to the TVTV website where you can pay for another year's subscription. Currently around £14.

Tv program guide will not update when connected through my dvr


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!

No map of canada


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.

Archos 405


Hi fiona

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....

DVR to Archos


Hi,

That's what the DVR does. All you need to do is play whatever program you would like on your cablebox/DVR and hit record on your archos. It will record it like any program.

ARCHOS 605 WiFi - 120GB TV guide problem


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?
