Andy -- does ConvertVideoFile depricate all other conversion processes? Very impressed with all the configuration choices... wondering if I need to rethink all my conversion profiles?

I've been using it w/ a lot of success with the h.264 / xvid conversions -> mkv so it's worth a look, but nothing is deprecated yet.

Can ConvertVideoFile take a .WTV file as input? If so, and it can handle files that are currently recording, it might be possible to make it dump to DVR-MS or MPEG streams and kick off comskip-live on them.

i haven't tested it with wtv (dvr-ms only got a once over); doubt that it will work.

SAV1 supports wtv scanning, why bother with a container swap?
