Connect the DVR station to the television source, like a TV tuner. Connect the yellow, red and white RCA cables between an output on the TV tuner and the input on the DVR station.
Insert the Archos 504 into the DVR station. It slides into the slot on the top of the DVR station.
Set-up the infrared emitter. This allows your DVR station to communicate channel changes to the source. From the "Home" screen on the Archos, access the "Setup" screen and choose "TV Control." Select the type of device you want to control, for example, "TV Tuner." Select the brand and choose "OK." Point the infrared emitter at the source or at a reflective surface pointed at the source. The infrared emitter is on the front of the DVR station at the right.
Set the scheduler. From the "Home" screen choose the "Scheduler" icon and press "OK." Use the arrow keys to choose the first line, and enter the desired channel, start date and time. Add the title and then choose "Validate Selected Program" and then "Save All Programs." Don't turn off the Archos 504 before or during recording.
