Record TV Shows with the Archos DVR Station
I also got this Archos DVR Station along with the Android tablet but didn’t opened it up until today. Hooked it up to my HDTV today and found some pretty nice features in it.
The cradle allows you to project the 5-inch screen into your TV at hi-definition (720p) so you can play HD movies like a media center.
At the back side of the cradle, there’s composite, S-video, RGG or YPbPr video outputs along with an HDMI port. When hooked up to the TV, it can actually record the shows from the TV to the Archos tablet easily. I reckon the 500GB model is most appropriate for this task (works like TiVo if you use the Electronic TV Program Guide).
The DVR Station also comes with a remote control and built-in keyboard so you can stream or browse the net thru the TV (the remote has a full keyboard and functioning mouse pointer).
The controls on the remote mimics that of the Android tablet so you won’t have any problems familiarizing with it. It feels like having a fully functioning Internet TV.
The DVR Station really extends the functionality of the Archos tablet, especially the media center and internet TV functionality. SRP is Php7,450.
