Good luck, if you are trying to creatre playlists for the Archos on a PC :? The process is too time consuming for most users. If you are really determined, then this is how to do it... 1. Use MediaMonkey (its free) instead of Windows Media Player. 2. Use the tools in Media Monkey to clean all tags a...

Does backdating the firmware affect the plug-ins already installed?..... This is the main issue for many potential upgraders. I would find the loss of the Podcast Plug-in too high a price to pay for going 80 -> 160Gb. If plug-ins can work with a new drive, then 160gb allows more usage of the Cinema...

Glad to hear it Vish :D I was very surprised to hear that Argos had refused a replacement, their returns policy has usually been close to the legendary Nordstrom Returns Policy in the USA back in the 1990's (as long as you have got that receipt....). I have chosen Argos on many occasions because the...

To be certain that all of your files are removed - permanently. Use something like Heidi Software's Eraser set to "Guttmann" overwrite. 8)

Black & White picture issues on the DVR are nearly always related to an S-Video signal being sent to the DVR whilst the Archos is set to Composite. The S-Video signal comes in two components and an S-Video filter has to be working that collects the Chrominance (Colour part of the signal) separately ...

I tried but same as you couldn't get it to work directly via the USB. I'm not that bothered really as the 360 isn't mine. If it is important to you, have you got the 360 connected to a Windows Media Center PC? You could try transferring music that way... :)

Sometimes a dropped unit can be resurrected because the impact has dislodged an internal connector. Can't see how Archos can market it for Extreme Sports people (with the helmet cam). I would back up everything you have on it just in case. Archos did no one any favours when they quitely changed the ...

Were your recordings at maximum bitrate? If not try that first. After that I suggest that you re-encode a short sample recording (at maximum bitrate ) off the DVR using something like Super. You can stream the video and only re-encode the audio. With a bit of experimenting you should establish what ...

Archos .m3u Playlist Converter for MediaMonkey

I am currently beta testing a simple VB application that I wrote to convert Extend .m3u playlists into the format that appears to be used by my Archos 504. EDIT: My intention is to use the Archos in Hard Drive mode throughout. I can now successfully take the following code exported by MediaMonkey to...

You can check the IR output (or lack of it) of your remote by viewing its front end through a camcorder viewfinder. The IR is seen as flashing white light when the buttons are pressed. 8)

Hopefully... there should be some heavy discounting on the 04 Generation models once the 05 is out. If all you need is a pocket portable VCR - then an 04 will become a bargain.... 8)
