I have a Windows 7 Media Center machine for our family's DVR. It creates recorded TV files in a .wtv format (used to be .ms-dvr in the Vista days). We have a laptop running Lion that I'd like to watch TV shows on occasionally. Obviously it has no idea what .wtv files are. I checked out Adapter, but it doesn't look like .ms-drv or .wtv are supported for conversion. What's the easiest approach to getting these files to play on my Mac? I'd prefer to run a converter on the Mac if possible rather than the DVR just because it's not often that I'd want to watch a show that way.

How to watch a wtv file on the iPad/iPhone.
iPad/iPhone alternative solution
Just use Handbrake to convert the video file into a iPad/iPhone version.
You can use VLC player which supports playing this file type and gets updates for new file types all the time.
