Build 7048 adds in-box WTV to DVR-MS file conversion

You can convert WTV files in windows 7 (build 7048) to the old DVR-MS files! Just right-click on the WTV file and select: convert to DVR-MS.


If it works, this solves several issues. Among them:

*Playback of Win 7 recordings on Vista (non TV Pack) and MCE 2005 boxes.

*Editing Win 7 recordings with programs that work with DVR-MS and not WTV files. (Commercial skippers, VideoRedo, etc.)

It's a nice addition but I'm not even sure why they chose the wtv format beyond the probablity of extra drm in the format.

It's my understanding that WTV added DVB subtitles support not available in DVR-MS, plus ability to record multiple audio streams.

The conversion tool is a nice addition, but will become unnecessary as software developers update their products to handle WTV. I expect most will have done that by Win7 launch time.

I don’t know if this will help you, but I ran into the same problems. I wrote a utility to automate the built-in wtvconverter.exe program. You can check it out at:

Psst, just a friendly note; this thread is over 7 months old, very unlikely the original poster even is on the same build.

Usually best to check when the last post was made on, and make a guess on whether or not it is too old.
