Hi...

New to the group....just bought the 604 wifi. So far, I love it! But I went and spent the dough and bought the dvr docking station, but I'm having trouble getting the remote to do anything. I put in brand new batteries, thinking maybe the ones it came with were dead, but I push every button, and no reaction. Do I need to set something on the unit? Or do you think I got a bad remote?

Any suggestions very much appreciated.

Thanks!

If you purchased the gen 5 dvr station, you're out of luck, as apparently the remote doesn't work with gen 4 devices. You should be able to get a working one by contacting Archos. If it's not this, I'm not sure of an explanation...

I think you have a bad remote. I've had my 604 WIFI and DVR dock for about a year now and just recently my remote quit working. I've tried cleaning the battery contacts but that didn't help. For maybe 3 or 4 months or so I'd have to slid the battery out then back in to get it to work so I thought cleaning contacts would help but no luck. Battery condition is fine. I guess I need to find out if they sell the remote seperately. You should get a replacement but it is not good that we both have the same problem. The Archos and DVR station seems to be made very well otherwise.

update.....I figured it out. I bought an opened box special from Circuit City, and alas...it was a gen 5. So, I took it back and to my surprise, the local Walmart had the gen 4 dvr for only 70.00. Now it works great and I'm back to lovin the Archos!

Thanks for the help!

Wow! That's good to hear. Makes me less suspicious about the quality of their remotes too.

Hi I'm a first time poster who bought 2 604 WiFi's for a great price(320 ish out the door) at Sam's club. I'm now investigating accessories, DVR, batteries, etc. Has anyone tried to use a harmony remote with the 5th gen DVR station and a 4th gen player. Thanks for any help.
