DVRMSToolbox is a set of tools to perform actions on media files. While DVRMSToolbox is designed to work on Windows Media Center Edition (MCE) PCs, everything but the automated commercial skipping will work on any Windows based machine. It will also work on media files created by other DVR systems (like SageTV).

The more popular application of DVRMSToolbox in Media Center is it's automatic commercial skipping capability. Using this feature (by combining the FileWatcher and the CommercialSkip add-in), Media Center will automatically skip commercials while you are watching the show.

DVRMSToolbox does many more things, like:
- convert to mpeg
- convert to wmv
- cut out commercials
- copy files to a pocket pc
- copy files to a network share, or a different folder on your pc

It comes with a set of default profiles, but also includes tools to create your own profiles with the included actions. Or if you are a developer, you can write your own actions.
