WTV File Format Information
WTV files are created by the Stream Buffer Engine (SBE) when Windows Media Center records a television show. They are saved in the \Users\public\Recorded TV\ directory by default. Recorded shows can be opened and played back within Windows Media Center.
The WTV file format replaced the previous .DVR-MS file format in the Windows 7 version of Windows Media Center. WTV files can be converted back into DVR-MS files by right clicking them in Windows Media Center and selecting the "Convert to .dvr-ms Format" option.
