Media center recording

By craig.christine ·
The option to record video on to DVD through media centre is not available. The only option is data recording which will not play on any of my DVD players. I have upgraded the Nero software packaged with the burner provided to premium seven, as I thought this could be the problem, but it does not recognise a TV card at all, if I attempt to go this route, it tells me no compatible card can be located. Hauppauge card is on the drop down list but it will not recognise mine.
I can record to hard drive fine.
The Microsoft web site says to contact the company you bought the computer from for this problem. This is the reply I got:
"Permanent storage of tv is against copy write laws and I doubt Microsoft would support that function.
You would need a third party program to convert media center video files into mpeg2 and then burn them with nero."

I should just be able to burn through Media centre anyway should I not? What programme are they talking about as there is nothing in help to tell me or that I can find at Microsoft. The computer was new in November and should be capable and it is Media 2005.
Help anyone please Christine

While there are complete packages for video stream to DVD
creation--Pinnacle comes immediately to mind--Media Center is
not it. Neither is Nero, which is specifically designed for disc
burning, not nesessarily for including all the necessary
conversions and generating the required files and directories to
accomplish what you want.

What I believe you are looking for is DVD authoring software, to
complete what you already have.

Here's a link to some reasonably priced titles:

This one looks particularly suitable for your needs:
