Windows 7: Recording-editing live TV - file incompatibility

Recording-editing live TV - file incompatibility

Windows Live TV recorded file has an extension .wtv. To edit-burn it one must use Live Movie Maker (thanks to Microsoft) producing a file with .wcmp extension which it can burn to DVD. Better editing programs like Corel VideoStudio Pro X4 can not open either files. Live Movie Maker is good for editing out advertisements, but not much more for any decent editing work.
File conversion progs are offered (some with hefty prices) on the net, but, as far as I can see, none can do a decent, clean conversion of .wtv to AVI or MPEG2. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Right click on the WTV file and chose Convert to dvr-ms. That format can be handled by most converters/editors.

video breaks up on live or playback only - recording okay
When watching live or playback, the video breaks up with this green hashing and stuttering. It is not poor signal pixelation. I can playback the same recorded files shared to my desktop computer, and they look perfect. So it's recording properly. This appears to be strictly a rendering issue of...

possible print-to-file incompatibility (NitroPDF and CutePDF)
I want PDF print-to-file capability from the standard print dialog. I installed first CutePDF for this and later PrimoPDF without the Nitro reader. Both methods install a virtual printer in the print dialog, then they allow me to print to a file. The problem is that when I go to open the file,...

Recording live TV only records from time of button press
As a long Time Warner Cable customer, I've gotten used to how their DVR boxes work (and am very glad to be off of them now). One very common thing I would do is start watching a show, and mid way through it decide I want to record it and watch it later. The nice thing was that the recording would...
