  1. So i guess there's some kind of Media Center add-on (or something) for Vista to make Media Center use .wtv instead of .dvr-ms files to record tv shows. This is also the format Windows 7 uses to record.

    Anybody know of a way to convert these? I've tried the same methods I used to use with .dvr-ms and had no luck.

    I haven't heard of that format until now. You might have to wait for the final release of Windows 7 before conversion tools become readily available.

  4. I tried the methods discussed on that forum, which were (convert wtv to dvr-ms, then convert dvr-ms to mpeg), and i had no success.

    i get the wtv converted to dvr-ms, and the dvr-ms file plays with no problems in media center and media player, but when i try to convert it to mpeg, i only get the first minute for some reason.
    So, after a couple hours of searching for a free alternative, i broke down and paid for software called "WTV to MPEG", which does exactly what the name implies, and converts the .wtv file to .mpg. it does so without re-encoding, so you don't have to worry about degrading quality, and it's a very easy to use software. It's $30.
