    I recently purchased a new comp. that has a TV card and Windows XP Media Center Edition. I was just playing around with it for a bit and recorded a TV show. I want to try to compress and convert this movie to an avi so that i can open it with vdub and chop out the commericals but it is saved as a *.dvr-ms file. I'm familiar with converting using programs like Gordian Knot but I wanted to get some advice before working on this show. It's around 3.7GB and I would love to convert to an XviD round 350MB if possible. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    VC
    This is so much fun!

    I *Think* there are some tools/methods that make it easier with .dvr-ms. Used to be a bunch of fan/user sites anyway, so probably worthwhile to google a bit.

    No need to convert to avi to chop commercials. Give Videoredo a try! Chop the commercials and then convert to your desired format.

    Do you have anyother suggestions. Videoredo only recognizes vob, mpg and mpeg.

    For clarity you a capturing TV shows to dvr-ms, is that correct? For some reason I am under the impression that VRD will work on those, did you actually try VRD? If so, have you contacted their tech support via their forum? Their tech support is very good and very responsive

    I just checked my VRD, which BTW is VideoredoPlus, and in 'Options' --> File Types it lists dvr-ms, so I am fairly certain VRD Plus will work with your files.
