Archos Portable DVR 80 GB (504 I Believe)

Post by Tanskya »

I am able to purchase to this model of Archos. I need to know a few things such as; is it too outdated? All I would mainly want it for is to store movies and Mp3s. I needed something with > 60GB of storage space. I keep reading how its pricey to get all the codecs to play certain formats of video on many Archos players, can someone speak on this please?

I have two 160GB 504s with my cds in wave format to output to an external d/a converter for the hi-fi.

It was designed to play divx and xvid simple profile video codecs with mp3 audio tracks.

You could buy software plugins that enable play of dvd format mpeg2 video codecs with ac3 sound, and further mp4 containers with h264 video codecs with aac sound.

If Archos do not sell the plugins anymore, you used to be able to get them off ebay for around 15-20 $, you would need to search if they are still available.
