Hi, heres the problem, when i record tv in media centre for example the 10 o clock news, everything is fine
until i try and burn it to a dvd to watch in a normal dvd player,
i click record option and the next screen
says data dvd or video dvd, if i select data all
is ok but i want video dvd and media centre hangs
when i click dvd video, have to use taskmanager to close media centre,
Im running win 7 home prem.

All computer files are Data anyway, so try selecting Data.

Not yet tried it in W7 but in XP, the files are in dvr-ms format which can be watched on the PC but if you want to view them on a DVD player they have to be transcoded into video format by a programme such as VideoRedo or Roxio creator 2010

hi, i thought media centre encoded it as part of the burning process, does this mean i cant burn tv progs thta i record in media centre on 7 onto a
dvd for normal dvd players?

hi again after alot of tinkering i have found the problem i think, if i uninstall roxio creator 2010 pro then media centre will record tv and burn a dvd disk in video mode,
so is there a problem with roxio and media centre?

Probably a conflict with Roxio - similar problems with Nero and Roxio, is a long-term well known factor.

Hi tek, yeah i know what u mean, guess what i
reinstalled the older roxio creator 2009 and media centre is fine, stuff 2010 stick with 2009.
Thanks 4 all the replys :)
