    I just installed DVRMSToolbox with a plan to convert a bunch of old recorded TV shows to MKV (and perhaps back to WTV but with H264 rather than MPEG2 for space saving). On my first attempt, a 3GB ~40minute WTV recording compressed down to a ~480MB MKV, but the quality is not quite what I would like....
