Release Notes

A windows tray utility to automate the conversion of WTV files to DVR-MS files. Uses built-in 'wtvconverter.exe' utility in 7mc to down-convert files to DVR-MS format, so that 3rd-party software (such as Lifextender) can continue to function. No codecs or extra installs required! ... all blog entries

Version / .46

  • FIXED: Error codes 2 and 5
Would occur when file was HD H.264 encoded, but not always...more a wtvconverter.exe issue, but it seems that after an update to the parameter mask, a few test recording are converting properly now.
  • FIXED: Starts converting show too early
Updated process to listen for file changes, not just look at file modification date/time. Apparently, Media Center doesn't update the original file consistently throughout the recording process, but that's OK now because WtvWatcher sees all file I/O operations in the source location.
  • ADDED: Preference 'delete to recycle bin' after success
For testing or diagnosing scenarios, when something on the system isn't working as expected. Much easier that waiting for another program to record! :)
  • ADDED: Preference 'temporary working directory'
If you want to optimize WtvWatcher to split the file I/O read/write between physical drives, then when done converting, copy the resulting DVR-MS file back into the source location.
  • ADDED: Preference 'verbose logging' and 'view logs'
For when something's not working and you need to see what's happening. Also sometimes in order for me to help people in CodePlex discussion threads, it helps to see how WtvWatcher is behaving.
  • UPDATED: Documentation and Tutorials
