Do not buy it

Attractive Design, Fast Setup

Comments about Archos Archos TV WiFi Digital Video Recorder (80GB):

Just simply can not load 700Mb file from the comp. to TV+ not with Wi-Fi nor with Ethernet (stops working in the middle – must reset TV+ after) - only with USB.
Can not play 1.4 GB files - needs AC3 plug-in - not sure if you buy it it is going to play after. Often it just friezes like a comp when you hook-up an ext. HDD.

Comments about Archos Archos TV WiFi Digital Video Recorder (80GB):

88g hard drive big enough for me. Good tech support when I called Archos. Don't know about the tv guide on it. Free for the first year. Don't know the cost after that.
