    Trouble translating dvr-ms to mpeg in XP

    I'm having problems converting a .dvr-ms file to mpeg. It is a large file 14,497,882 KB the file name is Jesse Stone- Thin Ice_KCCI-DT_01_03_2009_19_58_02.dvr-ms  It was recorded using MCE and a Hauppauge HVR1600 I'm running DVRMSToolbox 1.1.0.8 MCE was set to record 2 minutes before and after the movie's scheduled time. When i try to convert the file it converts the first 2 minutes then never gets any farther no matter how long i let it run. I have converted other dvr-ms files from this same TV station namely the David Letterman show with no problems however it was about half this size.  Do i need to set some kind of file size limits? I have plenty of free hard drive space.

    I open DVRMSToolboxGUI (1.1.0.8). Select the input file ( a .dvr-ms file) then copy that path into the Output file and shorten the name and end it in .mpg   I have the process Priority set to High and the Profile is "Convert DVR-MS file to MPEG" I also have "Use Selected Profile" box checked. I then select run. The following is saved in the log

    InputFile=C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Recorded TV\Jesse Stone- Thin Ice_KCCI-DT_01_03_2009_19_58_02.dvr-ms
    Processing actions, this may take some time!!

    "Deprecated: Output DVR-MS file as one MPEG stream"

    use the ffmpeg method instead.
