    I have recorded a TV series (life on mars :cool:) using Media Centre and it has created 8 x DVR-MS files. I have now cut out the first and last few minutes of these recordings using DVREDIT but the problem is that as the files now have new filenames they dont seem to appear within My TV anymore.

    Is there anything I can do to reimport these files ?

    Try re-adding the file folder in Windows Media Player - F3 to load up the folder, once this is done Tools, Process Media Information Now. Wait until the process seems to come to a stop (I've never had the process complete yet), then Cancel.

    Then reboot. Once you've rebooted, open Media Center and go ot recorded TV. After a pause, you sohlud get repeted hourglass indicators as MCE adds the files back one by one.

    This usually works for me when I move TV files about. I hope it works for you - let me know.

    regards,
    Paul
