    I record a lot of tv programs on win7 for there hints and tips about crafting.
    The trouble is, the tips take up minutes of hard disk space, the programs
    take up hundreds of hours. Can anyone help. If possible I would like to
    convert the wtv files to dvd format, as well as edit them.

    Thanks in advance

      I'll be honest when I say conversions aren't my thing so I couldn't really even begin to advise you on this one Mogster, I think Jim Hillier is way more experienced in this type of thing than me so hopefully he will be able to advise on something :)

        Hey Mogster - Converting and editing .wtv files for burning to DVD is a tad convoluted:

        First up you will need to convert the .wtv files to DVR-MS format. This is the easy bit because that function is already built-in to Windows 7; simply right click on the .wtv file and select "Convert to DVR-MS Format". A new file will be created in the same folder but with the DVR-MS extension.

        You will also need to install DVR-MS editing software. There are some free ones floating about but I don't know how effective they are, you will need to do some investigating....just Google "Free DVR-MS editor" and search through the results. Here's a couple to get you started: HERE & HERE.

        There is a very good commercial software which most users recommend called VideoReDo Plus. Apparently it is very easy to use and extremely effective but it ain't cheap ($50.00usd).

        When you have finished editing you can just use the built-in Windows DVD Maker to burn to DVD; apparently Windows DVD Maker does support the DVR-MS format.

        HTH,
        Cheers.....Jim
