Actually, I saw the post by sllevey9 on Nov 21 and ordered then. Know they took preorders earlier than that but I didn't order until then.

SpeciMan, good to hear. Do you have the Gen 5 Docking Bay? If so, would be very helpful if you can try to record a program successfully without using the Scheduler for at least an hour without having it stop recording abruptly by itself. This is the single biggest problem with the 704 and need confi...

The only (serious) problem I have with it is recording stopping after 30 to 35 minutes. I have pretty much given up on recording directly with it and instead rely on Beyond TV to record mpeg, and then convert them to avi if 2 hours or more in length before transferring them to the Archos. With all t...

Yes, that's about the time it also stops for me (about 454MB to 458MB recorded)

Not sure if it is the 704 or the docking bay, but still have the problem with recordings direct from cable box stopping early. It used to be random times to stopping, but after installing latest firmware it is now totally consistent, stopping exactly 35 mins and a few seconds after start. Size of fi...

I have also had this problem although its random in that the times differ and the last 2.5 hour movie I recorded worked fine (pleasant surprise). There is a post in the Yahoo Archos Multimedia group from "Team Archos" that indicates they are aware of a bug which will be fixed via firmware. m

Portability is the only issue as to when you will have a chance to spend time watching it outside the house. I travel by plane frequently and its perfect to take on board (much easier than a laptop). Guess a car mount for kids would work as well. Screen is great. If you are used to recording from TV...

Agree. I have had an AV700 for a couple of years and it worked fine for me on weekly plane trips (the video quality was more than offset by the screen size, large screen and 100GB). Have now bought a 704 80GB and its screen quality is also a good tradeoff for the 80GB. Wonder where you were able to ...
