Unfortunately on Windows 8 this doesn't work.
Firstlt the option doesn't exist on the right-click menu, so I've tried running from the command line:
c:\Windows\ehome>cd /d c:\windows\ehome
wtvconverter "c:\WTVS\myfile.wtv" "G:\Ready for WDTV\myfile.dvr-ms" /showUI
This just returns the error: "WTV Converter cannot convert the file from .wtv to .dvr-ms format because the content is not compatible with the .dvr-ms file format."
- I receive the same error message for files recorded under Windows 7 and Windows 8.
- Files recorded on Windows 8 can still be converted on an old Windows 7 machine.
So this certainly seems to be a problem with Windows 8; what can I do to resolve?
