WTV Files...

Folks, Win7 records TV shows in this WTV format and has a built-in tool to convert them to dvr-ms format. I use PS3 Media Server and it doesn't recognize WTV yet so I have to convert. The problem is, WTV Converter that comes with Win7 starts the conversion process and then dies off after converting like 5-6 minutes of the show. How can I diagnose this problem? Would a codec pack cause this? Better yet, is there an alternative converter for WTV into whatever?

Thanks in advance...
