Re: DVR Station Not Seeing AV Receiver

So does anyone even know why the Archos needs feedback on what its connected to? I mean really, does it use that info somehow? We should be able to set what kind of connection there is out of the DVR station, and the Archos should not even care, it should just output the proper signal.

DVR Station Not Seeing AV Receiver

I have an A5 and a DVR station . The station is hooked up to my AV receiver through component video and digital audio. When I connect my A5 it goes through the questions about how its hooked up: Componemt-NTSC, then when I hit OK it goes blank, and after a short delay, comes back to the original scr...

Re: AutoMKV H.264 encoding guide for the Archos 5

Just a note to let folks know that the page where AutoMKV sends you to download the Nero AAC audio codec is no longer valid. However, just click on the "Download Area" button, Look for the AAC codec, click on that and follow the instructions.

Edit: Sorry, just noticed that its been covered already.

That's great that the 604 likes all your files. Wish I had the same luck. I'm also running a network media player (DSM-520) and that's where most of the sync problems occur. And I also have a Neuros OSD as my main network media player and ripper, and that one plays most every thing fine like the 60...

1. Yes.
2. No, although it will make playback easier if they are.
3. Yes, as long as you have the cinema plug-in.

You will need to put the signal through some sort of amplification. The signal out of the Archos is simply not strong enough drive speakers to the volume levels you want. Whether a boom box with audio inputs would be good enough or whether you need a even more more powerful amplifier, I don't know. ...

While you can certainly rip the whole disc to your Archos, it wouldn't do you any good. There is no software DVD player to take advantage of menus and such. You can only play videos one file at a time.

Without downloading the program, I have two comments: 1. It appears that you just add the vobs you want to merge to a list, then tell the program to do it. This is fine if you know what vobs you want to merge. As I tend to rip whole discs, this is seldom the case for me. DVD Shrink is nice because i...

Just to confirm....I used AnyDVD 6.1.1.3 to remove any protections. I then used DVDdecryptor to rip the DVD to my HDD. I then used PocketDivixEncoder to enode to .AVI and then transferred to my 504. I had no problems this way. I get a beautiful reproduction. The problem I am understanding now is th...

Do you have the cinema plug-in? If so, its easy. Use RipIt4Me (a free program) to rip your movie to the hard drive. Use the setting for ripping just the movie. After ripping, transfer to your Archos and you are done! Shouldn't take more than half hour tops, and even quicker depending on the speed of...

The FAT 32 file system limits files to 4 GB or smaller. vob files even right at the 4GB limit play just fine. Now there may be an issue with avi's over 2GB. If thats what you are using, I'd suggest re-encoding so the file size is less than 2GB.

Or is there some way to make the rips only make one VOB file? Please, keep it simple!! Another way is to do as I've outlined on page 2...
