Help needed please: Gen5 DVR station for 605


Standard Member
Apologies upfront if this is a stupid question.

A friend bought me gift of a Gen5 DVR station for my 605 whilst over in the US but the cables supplied are obviously not suited to my UK setup. Looking through the set-up documentation that came with the unit, I am somewhat puzzled?! :confused:

I have two switchable scart adapters and plugged in 1xS-Video and 2xAudio in both, the audio comes through fine but there is no video when I try to playback from the 605 to the TV. I have one scart going into the Freeview box and the other directly into the TV.

Hopefully, someone can make sense of this... am I doing something wrong or do I just need to source some UK leads from somewhere?

Many thanks in advance.

Are you sure that the SCART sockets support S-Video and that you have selected S-Video both on the external devices and the Archos itself?

If for example you were using a Sky box as a source then it wouldn't work as Sky can't send S-Video over SCART.
