I want a full firmware dump to look at and play around with, plus Jtag would mean full write access to flash, allowing us to add and remove pretty much anything to and from the firmware (ex. CUSTOM FIRMWARES!!!) WOOOOO... so yea, but that would be much farther into the future. For those that like th...

Nope, I even tried ramping the settings to full, My 30Gb model won't do it.
Just a faulty screen, it happens to laptops, phones, ect.

EDIT: If you can, see if you can get a replacement lcd screen from archos customer support. Although I doubt you can get one, its worth a try.
Good Luck!

Forget the treadmill and just do the stationary bike! If you have to do treadmill do what i've done, cuz it works: Get a headphone cord "extender" (if in U.S., Radio Shack has 'em). It comes in maybe a 5 foot length. Plug the extender into the headphone jack of the Archos. Plug the other ...

kk, alright, I like that Idea, I'll buy new from walmart and wait to buy DVR later. Also, As long as the device has enough volume to pump out bass on my sennheisers , I'm happy.

Thanks for all the help.

Bingo, found the cheapest solution! Buy the Archos new from walmart with associate discount and my 35$ gift cards then buy the refurb DVR at Archos. The end Price should be just above $280 after adding tax. Buying the DVR as refurb shouldn't be as risky as the device itself, since the DVR has no mov...

Well, honestly, I'm asking for help before I make a potential mistake, I could also Buy New and then save until I have enough for DVR, I guess that would be better. Wait, I think I have another $35 on one of my gift cards. But still so, I think a new 605 and DVR from walmart with associate discount ...

But I can buy refurb 605 30gb and refurb dvr from the Archos online store for $287 total. So yea, I would buy it refurb from the offic...

So I read around about the DVR, apparently it requires a tuner because it doesn't have its own. My Tv doesn't have an output and I don't have a tuner box or a vcr. Any alternatives before I buy and then have to manually record?

So these are the 2 most important questions,

1. DVR Must or Bust? (I'm really concerned if the channel guide will have my area listed)

2. Refurb or new? (Refurb does have 6 month warranty)

Questions Before Buying.

I've been thinking about buying the archos 605 and I have a few questions about it. 1. Do Stage6.com videos work? 2. Are the podcast and cinema plugins a must, or can you slide by without any problems? 3. If you use a certain button on the touch screen very often, will that part of the screen eventu...
