does anyone know what file format (MPEG 1, MPEG 2, etc.)
using XP Media Center's built in personal video
recorder? When I view the details for the file, it
identifies the type as "Microsoft Recrded TV Show", but
does not list the type of file format. Also, is there a
way to change the file format from what it currently is
to another type?

The recorded TV files are in a format called DVR-MS. This MPEG-2 video in a
wrapper to allow for metadata to be stored. Check out
www.thegreenbutton.com for information on converting the files to MPEG-2 or
WMV. DivX can also be done, but in more steps.
