Re: Andy W Resigns as Mod 26th Oct 2007!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone, I got back to the UK from a 10 day very busy trip in Brazil mid-week (where I had little time for Forum viewing) and I have to say I was VERY disappointed in the recent turn of events on this Forum. I no longer feel I want to spend 1-2 hours a day (at least) helping Moderate this Fo...

I don't know if I understood you right.

You should check at least one Audio (may it be AC3 or DTS) on Step 2, Audio Tracks. That will be the Audio to be encoded to MP3.

In the Advanced Settings, you check VBR MP3. That will be the audio of the encoded movie/clip.

Hope that helps.

Okay another info.

I had experience when the WD passsport 120GB black was recognised by the DVR station without external power. However, in the middle of a song, it just stopped and it won't be recognised again without the usb hub (with external power) being a third party.

It seems odd...

Please read this post

The WD 120GB will work with the DVR station by using a powered USB hub. Without it, most of us who tried to make it work alone, have not been successful.

i don't bother transferring to archos. i play the movies while the hdd is connected. in that way, i don't have to copy movies which i keep on the hdd.

Archos here in Dubai are okay. You shouldn't have any issue except the price. looking at the price on the online stores, I am amazed that the price difference is big. For example, the Archos 604 here costs 1799 AED (489 USD) and the DVR station costs 499 AED (136 USD). If you're going to the US, the...

good if it is working.

has anybody been successful in using the WD mybook 500gb with the DVR station? I am tempted to buy because it is the cheapest here.

I don't have docking adapter to test it with but analysing through this thread, I am quite convince that it is a shortcoming of the DVR station. Can't see any other reason because the WD 120GB passport drive shown on the illustration is the same as what I have and is not working with the DVR station...
