i don't know if this will help the devs or users of xbmc, but i have been using arcsoft showbiz dvd to transcode the files from ms-dvr to mpeg which works flawlessly in xbmc.
it is also a video edit suite as well as compression suite. there are other utilities as well like dv2wmv...but i had a hard time getting it work correctly.
not a one stop solution, but it has helped me with streaming my dvrs to my xbox. it has a 15-day shareware trial.
i hope this isn't seen as spam...

according to http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design7/news.html
they have added support for .dvr-ms files... does this mean we will be able to play .dvr-ms files from windows media center pc's? :kickass:
any idea when the new player will be implemented into a release of xbmc? i can't wait!!!! so excited! :o :bowdown:

since a couple of weeks i'am using windows xp mediacenter 2005. when i do a recording form the tv it creates dvr-ms files.
maybe it is possible in future versions to put in a codec to support these filetypes.

mplayer 1.0pre6: x-mas present is having support for dvr-ms
Quote:dvr-ms support in asf demuxer
i guess there may be support for dvr-ms in xbmc in the near future

xbmc really needs dvr-ms support now more than ever otherwise it will start to see a fall in users.
i have been streaming tv recorded on pc to my xbox (downstairs) using xbmc for quite a while now and have been very happy with it. i have now upgraded to mce 2005 and found xbmc does not support dvr-ms.
as it seems form this post, it is unlikely that support will be added to xbmc any time soon and therefore i am now having to seek an alternative to xbmc, maybe a second pc or a simple video send.
i would much rather keep xbmc but have no choice.

please read this entire thread from the beginning and realize that ffmpeg/mplayer cvs'es gets updated every day, (and they are working on dvr-ms), we just don't have the time nor the will to port every single update to own own xbmc cvs every day, what we instead try to do is update/port their whole code when mplayer release a point release (like 1.0-pre5 and 1.0-pre6), so if you want to have the very latest latest updates from ffmpeg/mplayer cvs'es in xbmc today (or any day) then you need to lean how to port the updated code over to xbmc source code and then compile it yourself, ...or you just have to have patience and wait for the next mplayer point release (1.0-pre7?) and then wait for the official xbmc devs to port it to xbmc cvs. ps! if you cannot code but still like to help, what you can do is test very latest ffmpeg and mplayer) on your windows pc then submit proper bug-reports and problem-samples to their developers, (ffmpeg/mplayer that is, and not team-xbmc as we are not codec developers).

according to the 1.0pre6 history / changelog it _does_ now have support for
* dvr-ms support in asf demuxer
- TeXBoX - 2005-02-24 22:42
now we just need to wait.
- Striker - 2005-02-24 23:13
wait for what?
just enable the alternative mplayer in my videos settings
thats is the pre6 mplayer
- dupfold - 2005-02-25 02:31
what build are you using? i have an up to date build and have enable the alternative mplayer in my videos settings, yet dvr-ms files are not being displayed and therefore cannot be played.
