The new DVR interface on the Archos 605 WiFi is a drastic improvement over the previous VCR-style recording interface. There are a few steps involved in setting up the channel guide (entering your ZIP code, selecting your cable box, etc.), but once that's done, the DVR actually seems approachable.
Archos has ditched the TV remote style for a QWERTY remote. The button on the left is a nine-way direction pad that acts as a mouse. Hook the Archos up to your TV and you can wirelessly surf the Internet on your television using the Opera browser.
I'm not sure if Archos is calling this the Smart DVR (embossed on this prototype), or Archos TV Plus (found in the press release). Whatever it is, it should give Apple TV and TiVo some competition. Archos claims this will have an HDMI connection, a program recording guide, and Wi-Fi connectivity for content streaming and Web browsing. Due out in the fall.
