ZuneTVWatcher: MCE to Zune Conversion

Posted by Damion Chaplin in "Zune Content Creation & Management" @ 12:00 PM

"A new program out today, ZuneTVWatcher kind of starts to pick-up where Microsoft left off with lame Media Center and Zune integration. It will automatically monitor your Recorded TV folder, and then convert your recordings to go on the Zune. You might be saying, “Hey, I can do this already”. But that one thing that you might not already be able to do is sync the shows and have the metadata put them into the "TV Shows" section on the Zune. Right now, if you use third party tools to convert your recordings, they will likely be put in the “Videos” section. That's not much fun!"

Believe it or not, I don't have a TV tuner connected to my PC, so I'm not able to test this, but I'm sure if I did this would be invaluable to me. I miss the days when I could record TV with my TV Wonder and copy it over to my Archos for watching on the train... OK, maybe I'll have to get myself a tuner card now...

Zuneguy: Easy DVR-MS Transcoding

"I love my Media Center. I literally was one of the first to buy on in 2002 and have been using it ever since. As such, I've got tons of content in the DVR-MS file format and it is somewhat difficult to move around from device to device. In addition, I wanted the ability to remove unwanted content from my shows (like commercials). I had been looking for a tool that would let me do both for a long time. I finally found DCut awhile ago and it is incredibly useful, so I thought I'd share."

If you love your Media Center as much as Bill Wittress (Zuneguy), then there's a good chance that you have a sizable collection of DVR-MS recordings on your hard disk. Whether you have an Xbox 360 or Zune, Bill shows you just how easy it is to use DCut to move content around from Point A to Point B.
