I wired my Pro I sled to power my archos 605, and now I can't get video, just a black screen. It's been working on its own battery for awhile, but after I got the power working, it's black. If I unhook the video it goes to the no video screen. I'm baffled as to why it would do it. Do I need to put in the Video DA that Eric wrote instructions for? I don't get why it won't work now. Is running it on 5V changing the quality of the Video?


Thanks in Advance
Dan

Dan,

Check the playback/record toggle switch. Sounds symptomatic of that - might you have wired it to always do playback?

I didn't change the wiring from what I had before, I just wired in the 5 volt output. If I flip the video playback switch it works as usual. I'm baffled!

Thanks
Dan

Can the Archos 605 WiFi playback video to an external monitor using a smaller setup than the DVR station? The travel adapter for this unit is listed as only having a video input feature.
