My set top box created a .pvr file when recorded a program. I have been looking for a freeware that can convert and burn the .pvr file to DVD. Can you advise please?

No personal experience with the program, but you might try ProjectX. I saw this on the Afterdawn forums: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/664753

Anyone wanting to convert pvr files to avi, mpg, dvd or the likes a bit of a round about way but here it is anyway.
Install projectx from link below. After install
File - Add - Navigate to folder with pvr file.
Select prepare button (Centre left of screen)
Highlight m2p format & close window)
Select '+' button & set output dir(bottom centre)
Select Quick Start button
Now Convert m2p to avi, mpeg, dvd or whatever using any freeware software... (search for m2p to avi)
And welcome to our forums.
Thank you for the information but I have tried ProjectX but the program doesn't read the entire .pvr file. I have tried a few freeware such as 1 click, DVD creator, DVD flick but no luck so far. If you know other program that works please let me know. Once again thank you for your help.
You may need to fix timecode breaks (which MPEG Streamclip can do). Such breaks are very common in pvr files. However, I am not sure if this operation requires Apple's MPEG2 component to be installed (which is not free). Give it a try and see.
