AothRa: Can you use the 404 as a DVR? I know when I was looking at the Archos, some where able to record from tv, but you had to pay extra for the special cradle. Is that true for the 404?
Yep, there's a special DVR dock that you have to pay extra for since some people don't need it, Archos made it an extra addition only for people who want it. There's also other docks you can buy (battery, travel, usb, etc.). You can check out stuff on the 404 on the archos site. http://www.archos.com/store_us/product.html?country=us&lang=en&prod_id=0000000006
Also, the deal is still going on. I don't know if this is necessarily where AothRa bought his, but it's definitely refurbished for this price. http://www.buy.com/prod/archos-404-30gb-portable-digital-media-player-500868-recertified/q/loc/101/202958317.html
