Windows Media Center produces MPEG2 (dvr-ms) video at 30fps, 8250 Kbs, 720x480 resolution and is currently not supported by the Zune. To get this video to work, it must first be transcoded to one of the supported format mentioned above. There are many utilities on the internet that can do this conversion.&quot;</em></p><p>Yes, there are a basquillion utilities on the internet that can do this conversion.&nbsp; Which one did the author choose?&nbsp; The $99.95 TMPGEnc Xpress on the advicee of Zunester.com.&nbsp; Now, I'm sure TMPGEnc Xpress is a great program and works well, but I think I would rather buy a different PMP than spend $100 just so I could get video on it.&nbsp; So tell me, what program/utility did you settle on?&nbsp; What did you end up paying for it?</p>

Well, most of the video I've put on my Zune was already in WMV format, so I haven't had to worry too much about it yet! :)

Yes, there are a basquillion utilities on the internet that can do this conversion.

Really? DVR-MS support is lacking on almost every single one I look at...
