    Convert WTV to DVR-MS or Anything else. Please help!

    Hi I'm sure this has been addressed previously and I am very experienced pc user however I cannot seem to figure out how to use the DVRMSToolbox to achieve my goal. I have a Vista setup of Media Center with the TV pack installed.  All of my recordings are created in WTV format.  I want to be able to burn these to a DVD.  I have jumped through all kinds of meaningless hoops.  I have gotten some of the worst advise imaginable.

     I really don’t want this to be a lifelong project.  It's just so annoying, here I sit with these files and I can’t do a thing with them and there is no CLEAR instructions that I have been able to come up with.

     Mission:

    Burn WTV files to DVR

    Thanks

    I don't remember, does the TVPack have the WTVConverter?  It would be stored in the %/Windows/Ehome folder.

    Yes I have that folder, but I have searched the entire computer (all drives) for "WTVConverter" and got nothing

    Hmmm.  Well you have a couple of options then.

     1. Give toDVRMS a try.

    2.  Use the DTB Video Editor to convert to mpg.  You'll need to install AVIVO from the amd.com website to do this.

    3.  Try the wtvconverter here.  Requires Java.
