I've got a cheap STB/PVR that records DTV (mpeg2 transport stream). The files it creates have the file extension ".pvr" which by default is not associated with any software player on my PC. Initially I just guessed that they would probably be transport stream files so put a ".ts" on the end. Success, MPC plays them reasonably well (seeking can sometimes be a bit dicky, but basically it's all ok).
I would like to be able to skip the renaming step and play them directly with their existing ".pvr" file extension. The problem is that when I create the file association for MPC to open ".pvr" files it doesn't behave the same way as it does when I rename them to the ".ts" extension. In particular it hangs on an error box that says "vsfilter : wrong file version". If I "ok" this error message then it pops up (exactly the same as before) again and again, eleven times in total. Eventually (after ok'ing the error eleven times) it actually plays just fine.
So is there any way I can instruct MPC to open a file with a ".pvr" extension and make it treat it exactly the same way as if it had a ".ts" extension?
