Archos 504 Problem
Posted 20 August 2008 - 09:31 PM
Hopefully someone will have some helpful info. I recently bought an Archos 504. It worked great the first few times and I had no problems recording video off my sled. However today when I tried it again the archos/dvr did not recognize the video signal. I trouble shooted it off my cable box at home and no signal was detected there which leads me to believe its the Archos/DVR adapter and not the sled. Is there some kind of setting I may have hit accidently? Please help!!!

I too recently bought an Archos 504 off ebay and encountered the same problem. I had a cable made by Terry West to work with my PRO but had problems with my Archos sometimes not recognizing a video input. Terry upgraded my sled giving me 4 seperate 75ohm channels of video and that seemed to solve the problem. Unfortunately I found out the travel adapter will not charge my Archos. We tested the DVR adapter with my sled and another Archos and it charged just fine. I think I have a faulty left side charging port because it charges off the usb adapter from my computer which utilizes the right side port. My Archos and travel adapter works fine with my sled when fully charged but loses video signal and shuts down when the battery goes weak. I think I may just buy a new 605 from B&H.
