What display are you using- is the output format compatible to the display? Have you tried other output settings to find one that your TV may be more compatible to?

Your TV probably doesn't support macrovision which is why you can record from your tv without a problem. What connector are you using? I am assuming composite since otherwise I can't see how macrovision is being sent.

There is no comparison. Its like comparing apples to oranges. Sure a laptop can play back videos and do so much more. I agree that if a person is travelling anyway with a laptop that maybe it makes a good video viewer at the same time. I can always substitute a wrench for a hammer if I need to. But ...

There's is no need for calling someone's opinion ludricrous at the same time no need to belittle the desire for the best video quality possible.

Please avoid using comments that may be taken personally.

I just want the ability to swap hard drives for my 504, get rid of that stupid ID lock thing and it's perfect. For me anyway... Something I never quite understood. With the 504 available in 160gb capacities, why would you need to swap? If high capacity is what you need then you buy the 160gb model ...

Yeah they are legit, but I'd rather have 2 more standard capacity batteries because double capacity batteries are a bit thicker, and I find that my 504 is already thick enough as it is. Actually Li-ion batteries lifespan is about 2 years maximum regardless of wether its used or not. Hence if you ke...

Well you're doing a fantastic job because I haven't seen any spam for a while. I check a few times a day to go in and help clean up but everytime I check I must be too late because the forums appear clean. You probably beat me to the punch.

m3u playlists not finding songs

I synched WMP and created some playlists. All my music is on a linux computer shared with my main windows PC /Samba. The m3u it creates shows the UNC path of the linux PC where there original mp3 were stored. Now these m3u playlists do not work on the Archos.

Anyone have any ideas what to do?

I can't say that I've noticed that but if its the case then it can only mean the unit is consuming more power and battery life will be reduced. Maybe the increased HD spin is causing it.

They Fixed my 'buffer' problem. My unit would freeze for a second every so often when the hard drive spun up- I'm very happy they addressed this issue because it really bugged the crap out of me!

Arclib is forced upon us until they make the unit more bullet proof. As of now if they allow users the ability to turn off Arlib, then when users have problems it would by more difficult for Archos to diagnose the the problem. Archos would always wonder if the absense of a user using Arclib caused t...
