Advertisements I have started saving programs to my PC for archiving and also to watch on my Wi-Fi connected Laptop. The files are being saved on my home "server". All of my planed recordings are in Basic mode and they play fine on my Wi-Fi connected Laptop. Sometimes I record something that I am watching and of course in records in Best. When I watch a Best recording the network can't keep up with the bitrate and it studders. Media player doesn't appear to buffer (When I pause transfer stops). Is there a utility that will convert Best to Basic. (Bitrates appear to be about 5.8 and 1.477 mbps). I checked into Videoredo but it doesn't convert. I really don't want to transfer the recording to the Laptop to watch. Or is there a player that will buffer. (Real does not appear to buffer either) I would prefer to convert since that will also save HD space.
