Re: Does the TV programming guide still work for 605/705 series?

My TV guide expired a half year ago and I have since given up trying to get it renewed, there is no option on the archos site for renewal and they will not answer any email I have sent to them on the subject. Anyone else have any experience renewing their guides?

Re: Are You Happy With Your 605?

If I had to answer this question after I purchased my 605 wifi I would have said "yes, very happy". Now almost a year later, after no firmware updates since last May, and after at least a half dozen emails to tech support have gone unanswered, I would have to say no, with a added note to A...

Re: 605 Firmware Wish List - POLL: VOTE FOR YOUR CHOICE

As I suspected, no reply to my 2 emails, I'll stick with my 605 wifi till it breaks down, then Archos has seen the last red cent from me they will see. :cry:

Re: 605 Firmware Wish List - POLL: VOTE FOR YOUR CHOICE

The wish list seems academic at best as it doesn't appear that Archos intends on giving the 605 users a new firmware update, nothing since what, Last May?

Gads, I really get tired of people putting down their 605's, is there any other piece of technology out there that does half of what the Archos does? Sure it has a few glitches and falls a bit short on a few wish lists, but what piece of equipment has ever satisfied every single wish. I use my Archo...

After installing firmware OS update v 1.7.06 on my Archos 605 WiFi 160GB, the infrared emitter does not appear to be sending the Power signal to my satellite box prior to trying to change the channel to the program I have scheduled it to record. This worked fine before applying the patch, but now i...

Wish List

I would really like to see Archos come up with a way to back up your internet favorites so you don't loose them every time you run the "clear temporary system and cache" tool A quicker PDF reader with the option to rotate the screen and bookmarking would also be a plus We always can come u...
