Question about Archos AV 500 400-Hours Video Recorder
My AV 500 will always inform me that there is no input signal, even on video sent from every conceivable source I can find. I've tried every set up; auto, B and W, and component. I have two cables and they both play video from the unit to a tv (cable is okay)...alas, no input signal Anybody.... Did I miss something...
Make sure your power source is connected to the dvr docking pod

Check to make sure all of the configuration on the AV 500 are as they should be. If they are you are looking at a defective unit (might be hardware based) if it is I would suggest that is you do not have a background in electronics to take the unit to a repair shop. If you do have experience you will need the following items: A schematic diagram of the AV 500 A Multimeter to measure the voltages at test points of the AV 500 An Oscilloscope to measure the signals and levels at test points of the AV 500 if you have these pieces of equipment then you will want to start your test at the dectector stage (this is where video and audio are separated from the IF which is derivied from the RF so if you have video and audio at this point you know the input RF-IF-detector stages are working. Now based on your troubleshooting you inputted signal at the video processor by using the the video inputs, so from this I am going to take a stab at saying the problem more then likely would be located in the stages at and after the video processor stage (since in this case no signal may mean no video signal as opposed to no RF signal).
