Any way to copy recordings over to a Synology NAS

Hi,
My Archos can see and play video from my NAS device using UPNP without any problem.

Is there a way to be able to copy recordings from the Archos over to the NAS. I've tried the Archos file manager but the NAS is not seen.

The Archos is connected to my network via wifi.

Thanks

Re: Archos tv+ hard drive upgrades now available.

When you say it comes ready to install, do you mean the HDD and can any SATA drive be used for the upgrade.
Does the Archos format the drive to FAT32 or do you need to do this on a PC.

Re: Archos tv+ hard drive upgrades now available.

Do you have to reload the latest firmware once a new drive has been fitted or does the firmware not reside on the HDD.

I was under the impression that Archos didn't allow upgrades.

Can I record video audio in MP3 format ?

This may have been covered before but if it has I can't find an answer. When I record a TV program the audio records using the Microsoft ADPCM codec. When I transfer my recorded video files to another media player on a second TV they will not play unless the audio is in MP3 format. I then have to re...

Alternatives to TV+ ?

I thought the TV+ had its faults but having just bought an Emprex ME1-V2 Media Player/Recorder I'm beginning to see the TV+ in a better light.

Anyone using alternatives with similar recording/playback ability as the TV+. Not bothered about web access for TV program etc.

Can I sort my videos in the video/rec folder ?

Hi, all my videos are jumbled up when I view them from the video/rec screen, they seem to be listed in the order that they were created. Is there a way I can put them in alphabetically order.

The videos are in order when viewed in the file browser.

Thanks

Thinking of buying an Archos TV+ but?

Hi, I'm thinking of buying a TV+ but as I already have a 504 I wonder whether there is much to gain.

I've read varying reviews and am a bit concerned about the streaming abilities of the TV+. Such as stop/start viewing and out of sync recordings.

What do you think ?

Re: which external drives are compatible with DVR station ?

Are the drives you are trying to connect formatted as FAT32 or NTSC. If I'm not mistaken I think only FAT32 drives are recognised.

Editing a recoreded DVD

Archos does not remove the copy protection from an original DVD. It will let you watch a recorded DVD on the unit but nothing else, not even TV. To edit a copy protected DVD on your PC you will have to rip it first using one of the many free decryption programs such as DVD Decrypter.

Recording in mpg

I have tried searching an answer to my question but to no avail. Can you record from TV in mpg format. Everything I record is in AVI format as stated in the manual. Do any of the plugins let you record mpg files. I use VIDEOREDO to chop out adverts but this program cannot open AVI files. Thanks Tung...

Password protection

I have just had my 504 stolen. Its bad enough to loose the player but the person now has all my personal photographs, about 20GB of movie and countless mp3's. I have bought a new 504 and was wondering if you can have a sort of logon password when you switch on.

Typing in a Web site address

Does the 604 wifi have an on screen keyboard for typing in web address's. I've seen that the 605 wifi comes with a remote keypad. Does the 604 have something similar.

Is there a way to connect to a TV's aerial socket. I stay in a number of hotels with portable tv's that don't have scart or video input connections. Can you buy an adaptor to convert from a Red White Yellow cable to coax cable.

If you are copying programs from your Sky+ planner don't you have to start each program one at a time ?
