Media Centre Tv

Question

Help Please

 

I understood that Creator 2009 U.E could access MS XP Media Center TV recordings and edit them then save them to a settop DVD player format. I have as yet not found a way of accessing the TV files direct from MC using Creator 2009 U.E.

 

Could somebody please advise if this is possible or not under this software.

 

Thanks

UE = Ultimate Edition? If so, then yes it should be able to do what you want. Once you have recorded your program, you should be able to go to the folder and select the file from within VideoWave. (Click the Add Photo/Video buton, or drag from the Media Selector.) VW will convert it to a usable format. When it is finished, you should be able to click Done on the "converting file" dialog message. Then VW adds it to the Timeline like any other video clip.

Sorry Jim

 

Just my shortcut for Ultimate Edition. My previous software instantly indentified XP Media Centre files including the TV programs save by it, premitting their editing, clip extraction, and reformatting them to set top DVD player format and choice, which I was told was also possible in Creator 2009 Ultimate Edition.

 

 

What I have found is I can only use the old files I have saved and converted under my old software program in MyDVD, but I am unable to access any new TV recordings in XPs Media Centre My TV in Creator and carry out like operations which was the aim of obtaining it.

 

Thanks to your advice I will certainly now look into VideoWave and see if I can accomplish what I require using it. If I can get it to recognise the XP Media Centre MyTV file format.

 

Regards

"UE", never saw it expressed that way??? You may have set the bar :lol:

 

Give it a try as Kari & I suggested and let us know what happens.

 

 

Thanks Jim & Kerri

 

But having tried VideoWave does not recognise the XP Media Centre files saved under its MyTV Recordings system and XPs Media Center does not offer a file transfer or drag and drop for its recordings.

 

It seems I was mis informed on the Roxio Creators 2009 softwares ability and will have to now invest in a new version of my original software, to have something just as compatable as I had originally which I know does recognise them.

I don't think you were misinformed.

 

Here are the steps I use to edit tv programs recorded from Media Center.

 

Open VideoWave and select Add Photo/Video. Navigate to the recorded program files (Shared Documents > Recorded TV is the path on my pc) and select the one you want and click OK. A message comes up that says this is not an editable format in VW, do you want to convert it now? I click Yes and a new window opens up asking me to save it as an mpg. Click Save and a Transcoding dialog box comes up and gives you a status of the transcoding procedure. Once it's finished, click Done and it is added to the Timeline.

 

If these are the steps you are following and still no luck, then there may be another issue going on.

Thanks,

It seems I was not misinformed. Following your excellent step-by-step instruction after overcoming the problem of finding the (Shared Documents) Recorded TV path it all worked as advised. I did not try editing out clips that’s for another day. I think your final comment may also be true as on completion of the file conversion my screen task bar vanished and it required a power off to recover.

 

I’m sure if I get this all sorted the kids and teachers around the world I support with onscreen multi media learning materials on life and living in the UK will be very happy once again.

 

Thank you and Jim for your time and patience in helping this geriatric ex teacher sort out this problem.

Glad you got it working, John :) Add your computer specs to your signature like Jim and I have in ours so the more experienced gurus here (like Jim) will be able to help with the technical difficulty.

 

PS When you are ready, check out Steve's excellent video on cutting out sections of video Go here (link) and click on the "Cutting Out a Section of Video" link on that page. Several other helpful video tutorials there as well.
