move "v:\Recorded TV\*.wtv" "v:\Recorded TV\convert\"
c:\windows\ehome\WTVconverter.exe "v:\Recorded TV\convert\*.wtv"
move "v:\Recorded TV\convert\*.dvr-ms" "v:\Recorded TV\"
Del "v:\Recorded TV\convert\*.wtv"

Brilliant..! Wish I had noticed this earlier...

Quick note though... it wont work with HD recordings. So, if you are recording BBC HD using a DVB-S2 card (Hauppauge card in mine) then beware of the bit that states

Anybody any idea what the answer there might be. I guess that we need to only copy SD TV over to the convert folder....
