Yeah I agree, I think QVC have a deal with Archos and they always seem to get new models way before they go on general sale. I got my 504 160gb bundle a couple of years ago and I got a travel pack and the recording docking station included. The recording dock is £69 on its own.

I'm hanging on for the 5G.

heated and reserved one. anyone know of firmware hacks to do more?

what kind of a car charger to use with this?

The archos 5 is better.


Yes of course it is because it's the next gen up and is also priced over £250!

But this does exactly the same for a lot less money so as long as you don't always want the very 'latest' then this is ideal!

BTW, I have the 605 40gb and it's fantastic!! :thumbsup:
#12
Ooh ... the temptation.
Oooooohhhhhhh ... that 'orrible ache as I can feel my 'twins' being squeezed by Mrs QT if I buy this!

I've had a 30gb AV500 for over two years now and I love it. I'd really like the 605 and this is a great deal. I reckon I'll hold out for the new 5 though as that'll be worth getting a kicking for!
#13
bought one of these about 2 months ago, its amazing still trying to fill it up
pictures taken on my fuji 6500 look superb on it, the sound through my sennheisser 100's is superb and the video quality is more than acceptable.
i have just put family guy blue harvest on it and everyone at work keeps watching it, all i need now is the portable pvr/extended battery and im very happy.

superb deal, good exclusive for comet. definitely voted hot.


anyone want to buy a sony nwa806???:thumbsup:

Really like the idea of these, but don't know if I can justify it.. Never mind.
Thanks for all the hard work pepsi - rep added

If you get one of these you have to get the docking station as well, it just adds so much more functionality.

I have mine hooked up to the tv, it wirelessly conects with my PC, and can access all the video/audio files I have on an external drive plugged into it. Or you can plug in a usb drive (needs to be a mains powered one) into the dock yourself and do it direct. This leaves you all the space on the drive for other things.

Then there is the recording feature, I have a freeview box plugged into the dock. The archos can then record tv from that. It will turn on the freeview box and change chanel as well! I have a dedicated freeview box for it, works a treat. With the program guide as well it acts like a proper media recorder :)

Then, once you have recorded whatever you wanted, you can pick the player up and take it with you and watch on the move. Perfect for long train journeys etc.

Word of advice, once you go past 30gb the player does get thicker to encorporate the larger drives. Worth looking at if you want it to be portable.

Thanks. what you're saying is I can buy the dock/ then buy another external HDD and plug it in with the dock and the dock will record to it?

I like the dedicated freeview box idea :)
#18
I've got my dock plugged between Sky+ and the TV it can record Sky direct (and control the box), but I prefer to use it to copy back things I've recorded on Sky to take with me (use the Copy function on Sky+ and manually record on the Archos when you go to bed)...

Does this require alternative plugins to use the internet function.

The thing I hate about archos are all the hidden costs, to play certain sound files you need to buy an extra plugin. Also certain video requires another plugin. Then you need to buy the docking station to record off tv.

Plus they do not supply a mains charger which means even more money needs to be spent.

say that again? no mains charger included? :(

you sure? that's a bit of a rip off and i don't think it can play wma either

5g version is out in october and will be 4 times faster than ipod touch....and much sleeker has 3.5g & Flash Support...


here is a bit from iGizmo magazine

With its heritage of good-if-quirky players, we’re
delighted to see Archos upping the mobile ante.
The star of its new range is the 5g: outstanding
format support, a huge touchscreen that drips
detail, and an almost alarming range of features. A TV
tuner and DVR docking station come as options, as does
GPS (see Extras)- but the real story is the SIM card slot,
granting speedy 3G web access for browsing and email -
complete with Flash support for the full experience. It’s
no iPhone slayer - there’s no phone, for starters - but it
tightens the net around the media player market. It’ll
cost £360 when it arrives in October.

Hi, is there anything similar to this but not portable as i want something like sky+ that can record TV things and also watch live streaming on the tele.

I've seen similar recordable DVD players with HDD but cant work out if they do this

thanks

Sorry but I agree, people should investigate themselves rather than always relying on other people to tell them...

If you were to say I've had a good look about but can't find the answer then fair enough but some people are just lazy and can't be bothered! :?

Take a chill-pill pibpob. Not everyone minds answering questions so don't presume to speak for everybody when you say us. Someone who knows may be happy to pass on that info even if you wouldn't be.

Excellent device, purchased a 30GB edition on fleeb*y for £129 as a gift. My brother loves it - screen is simply amazing! Not sure if the extra 10GB will make a difference to many people, but it sure is a excellent little device. Voted hot!

Do these come with the web browser plug in, i've got a 504 and get hacked off you have to purchase these add ons.
I'd maybe take this if it came with more playback functions. Also by the looks of it rmvb is still not supported for archos apart from china. Which is a bummer.
