Recorded TV shows as "Unsupported file format"

Just what the title says. Using Windows Vista 64 and windows media center. I recorded House last night, went to watch it today, it tells me its unsupported. I tried searching all I find is people having issues burning there stuff. I dont want to burn it, i just want to watch and delete like a DVR...

On the start screen, scroll to TV + Movies, and then click recorded TV.

Click date recorded or title, and then click the recorded TV show that you want to watch.

On the program info screen, click Play or Resume.

You can use the transport controls to fast forward, rewind, pause, or stop playing the recorded TV show.
To see how much time has passed when playing your recording, click Pause Picture of the Pause button and you will see a time span bar.

yep. Plain and simple. I hit record, it recorded. I went to play it today, it tells me unsupported file format. All on the same box, not touching the files or anything.

Just hit record, next day hit play, doesnt work.

sounds like a corrupted file? What does the file look like in explorer? What are the properties (file type, size)

You could try a different media player, VSO plays just about anything .

media center started giving me issues with the tuner too, rebooted and now it like the file... Chalk that one up to windows being windows. One of these days I might build a purpose built machine to handle this task.....

Probably a drm problem.

I love the 45 - 60 second delay while windows is verifying the multi layer drm info for wmc.

What type of file does it save? You can download MediaInfo and open the video file in it to see what type of video codec it is, container, audio, etc. VLC is a very capable player that can play just about any format out there, you could try playing it with that.
