Recording TV progs on PC......

....and playback on TV?

I have an Hauppauge freeview TV card on my PC and would like to be able to record the occasional program and copy it to a DVD so that I can play it back on my TV through my Sony DVD Recorder.

At the moment I watch the occasional TV progs on my PC through Media Center but if I burn recordings taken on it they won't play back on the TV.

What are you using to burn the progs onto a DVD? You cannot just copy the recorded file onto a DVD, you will need to use a DVD authoring program (for example Nero) to create a playable DVD.

I have got Nero 7 Essentials, which doesn't appear to do what you say. Are you aware of any freebies that will do this?

I did a quick search for "DVD video authoring", but most results were not freebies. Did find this one which is classified as freeware. The desription implies it should do what you want - may be worth a try.

Thanks very much for that. I'll give it a try and if it fails I might be reduced to paying for a plug-in for Nero.

IIRC TV transmissions use MPEG2 - but I stand to be corrected.

The above converter link indicates what can be converted video wise.

.. Media Center TV files are saved as DVR-MS files. There should be some way of converting them with Windows Movie Maker but I can't work out how:-((

Phew you have been busy!

Thanks very much indeed for all your research. I now look forward to watching all that stuff I recorded with Media center on my TV.

Thanks once again!
