Best HD PVR Software to Re-encode PVR Video to MP4/MKV/AVI
People use PVR to record TV shows for various reasons. Some don’t have the time to watch the show when the satellite program is played while some don’t want watch the TV advertisements cause Digital video recorders can change the way television programs advertise products. It is said that half of viewers in the United States, for example, use DVRs to skip commercials entirely. The only problem is that PVRs can usually record MPEG-2 .mpg, MPEG-2 .TS, VOB and ISO images video, all of which video formats are not firendly to media players.
In addition, although some DRVs can be updated to record in new formats, DVRs usually record in proprietary file systems for copy protection, even some using FAT file systems. This make you have to play PVR recordings on PVR decoders. If you want to play your PVR video on PC, smartphone, tablet, you need to convert PVR video to MP4, MOV, WMV, etc more compatible formats. There are many video converters that can re-encode PVR MPG, TS, PS, ISO files to MP4, MOV, WMV, etc like Bigasoft Total Video Converter, iDealshare VideoGo, WinAVI Video Converter, Tipard TS Converter, but only for Unencrypted TS file format, which are the ones you see in a camcoder or a DVD.
To convert recorded programs on qsat decoder, which has strict encryption, to common video format, you need a more powerful PVR Video Converter. After my extensive research, I discovered Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate (Happens to be the best among all video converters I tried) that can convert the .ts file recorded on a qsat decoder to a common video format(e.g mp4, avi..) and hd video mp4, mkv, etc playable on pc on mobile phones.
