I had heard that the beta of MCEBuddy would do a conversion from WTV to H.264 here:

So i went ahead and downloaded the latest MCEBuddy beta 13 and gave it a shot.... #FAIL

Turns out it doesnt work so well on x64 version of Windows 7.  A bit of googling and i found an item in the MCEBuddy forums with a procedure to make it work - using a tool to force the program to execute in 32bit mode.  Post here: Getting MCEBuddy 2.0 to run in  64 bit environment

The gist is this: use a tool called "corflags.exe" from the .Net SDK to force the MCEBuddy.BetaUI.exe app to run in 32bit mode.

C:\Program Files (x86)\MCEBuddy2Beta>CorFlags.exe MCEBuddy.BetaUI.exe /32Bit+

In my current search for tools i also found MC-TVConverter which was a one-click conversion utility, but i wasnt happy with the output.  Different profiles had different issues from incorrect aspect ratios, to lagging sound.

I'm still running MCEBuddy over one of my files, i'll post again after i see the end result.

Haven't read the MCE Buddy stuff yet but do you (or any othe geekzoners) have any idea if it works properly in 32 bit Windows?
