Thanks Sccr - I'll give the file sync a try and let you know how it goes.
In the meantime, I'm having problems getting my profile to work and the wiki doesn't seem to have the documentation I need...can you help me find the right docs and/or construct the profile?
Here's what I tried:
I started with the remove commercials, output dvrms & comm xml, move to recorded tv profile -- then I tried to add the convert to video action to the end as defined in the convert to zune profile. However, the convert to video action settings were mostly read only and I couldn't figure out how to match what's in the Zune profile. Finally, I couldn't find what context variables to set to define the input for the convert video to be the previous output (sans commericals), and the output for the convert video to be where I want the zune files to go....
I think we're getting close....thanks :)
