Does Dvr_Ms Import Work Now?

Question

I've been running Creator 2009 on Windows 7. This was a clean install of Ceator 2009 and Windows 7 (not an upgrade) on older hardware. While Creator 2009 appeared to work fine importing XP Media Center dvr-ms files, I have never been successful importing a Windows 7 dvr-ms that I create by right-clicking on the .wtv file. Has Roxio 2010 or 2011 been updated yet to fix this problem? I've been waiting to upgrade until Roxio adds .wtv support but this just doesn't seem to be happening (its been a couple of years now ...). Thanks.

C2009 is not compatible with W7 only C2010 and C011 are.

Thanks to all -- having confirmation that dvr_ms files (converted from .wtv) under Windows 7 do work with an updated version of Creator is what I needed. I purchased and am downloading Creator 2011 now. I am running IE-9 beta so this will be interesting. I assume that if I'm struck by the IE9 beta issues that Roxio will be delivering a patch sometime soon.

C2011 does not work with IE9 Beta and I doubt that Roxio will issue a patch for a Beta program

After removing Creator 2009 and installing Creator 2011, I find that I have the same problem as before. Video Copy and Convert hangs on import of dvr_ms files that were created on Windows 7 from .wtv files. The program hangs on a step called "remux file".

 

I did find that I can import the dvr_ms file into MyDVD. When I do this, it first asks to convert the file, saying yes yields a .mpg file. I can then import this .mpg file into Video Copy and Convert and generate an iPhone file (my whole focus for this and what used to work directly on XP with Creator 2009).

 

So, while I think I wasted a chunk of money today, I do appear to have a rather time consuming work around to converting the files.

 

Sigh. I hope someone at Roxio watches this list and will fix the direct dvr_ms import in Video Copy and Convert.

 

Note that I don't appear to have any Roxio apps broken by having the IE9 beta installed. I had meant earlier that I'm sure that Roxio would patch whatever is needed in this area once IE9 is released.

 

Thanks again to everyone for the help.

As IE9 is beta and part of the responsibility in running beta apps is you report bugs back to the maker, wouldn't it make more sense to tell MICROSOFT that it's causing problems and have them fix it?

 

The problem is in IE9 - it's not everyone else's job to fix a faulty app from MS (not matter what they may think)

Just to be clear and close this thread out: the symptom that I see now with Creator 2011 with Video Copy and Convert hanging on the initial "remux file" step is the same that I saw with Creator 2009. In both cases I was running on Windows 7 opening dvr_ms files that were created by Windows 7 from the native wtv files. The Creator 2009 tests were from well before I had installed Internet Explorer 9 beta on the machine. I do not appear to be running into problems with other Creator 2011 components even though I have IE-9 beta installed (for example, I can import the file into MyDVD without problems and use a 2-step process to convert the file). I realize that this isn't conclusive proof that without IE-9 beta installed, that Video Copy and Convert from Creator 2011 would work but I doubt it and I'm not going to spend any more time on this. I can get the occasional kid's tv show over to the iPod so I'm done.

 

One note for others stuck with this problem: if you don't care about editing the video before coverting and you have a decent ATI video card, download and install the latest Avivo xcode stuff from their site. This will directly convert from .wtv to ipod without any intermediate steps and no initial Windows to-dvr_ms step. I'm sure that I'll switch back to Roxio when they deal with this issue, but right now all of the extra time/steps outweighs the extra features that I get from Roxio.
