How did yours arrive? Was it special delivery or recorded? Still waiting for mine which showed as despatched on Monday morning. :cry:

it arrived by special delivery. Charged on the battery dock in about 4-5 hours. Looks superb. Works beautifully. Still haven't tested the wi-fi element as I'm waiting for new wi-fi router to arrive. Small note I discovered that the download times for movies via the USB ports on my laptop differ a lot. I plugged it in initially and it said 3 hrs to download a 700mb movie. I thought I had a duff player. Tried another USB "2 mins". Much more like it. Going to test the battery life on a train journey on friday

You can just download v1.3.08

And if you are having problems installing, remember to read the How to install a firmware link on the Download page.

I wouldn't worry too much - although mine said on the label it was sent guaranteed delivery before 1pm next day, it actually arrived two days after QVC said they'd shipped it! And I'm sure if I hadn't still been at home when Royal Mail came round this morning they'd have probably just tried again tomorrow.

I'm having much fun with mine, though the web browser crashes the whole unit whenever I try to enter a URL. I shall persevere with that one!

I'm in Essex, still waiting for mine to arrive... I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve.. :D Let's hope it is worth the wait. I'm fairly new to Archos products and am hoping this will be a suitable replacement for my trusty Zen Vision M ;) I love the idea of recording straight from the TV and am hoping to load some kids tv on it for my son to watch on long journeys...thats if I decide to let him anywhere near it :!:

Phew! Mine arrived this morning (London SE1). Charging now.

Am I right that the charging light on the battery dock does not light until it is charged ie no lights on the battery dock while the 605 is charging?

The light on the actual dock is on all the time on mine, if that's what you're talking about.

As for charging, leave the 605 on, anyway I did and mine started blinking after about 3.5 hours.

Mine arrived Wednesday-so far, so good, very impressed. I had bought the 704tv from QVC previously, but sent it back as the Freeview reception was absolutely pitiful wherever I wanted to use it. I'm now so glad I sent it back-the 605 is smaller, neater, has far better features (ie WiFi rather than Freeview), plus its 160Gb as opposed to the 80Gb 704tv, AND it was £100 cheaper-result :D

Yes me also still waiting near Brighton ! Not good really use to be much quicker from QVC years ago

Does anyone know if you can watch ie the itvlocal site ? Does it play real and windows media video / audio ??

Also I noticed in one video of the 605 youtube videos play quite jerky when NOT played full screen, is this true ?

Ordered mine (QVC) on sat about 1300, shipped on 18/09 and arrived on 20/09. I am happily playing (web browsing, streaming and set up my dvr to copy my favourite programmes) with it since.

Ordered mine Saturday, said it shipped Monday, still not arrived!
Phoned QVC they were very rude. How can an item shipped on Monday still not be here? I don't believe it was shipped Monday :?

To be fair, they do say 5-7 working days. Though I'd be a bit miffed if I hadn't got mine yet and everyone else had.
