An update is available for Windows Vista to enable Windows Media Player to recognize .wtv files as Recorded TV files

Microsoft has released an update for the Windows Media Center TV Pack for Windows Vista. This update is intended for computers that are running the Media Center TV Pack in Windows Vista Home Premium or Windows Vista Ultimate.

The update for Media Center TV Pack for Windows Vista resolves the following issues:

  • When the .wtv files are synched by using the standard Windows Media Player process for third-party formats, the .wtv files are put under the Video library instead of under the Recorded TV library.
  • Windows Media Player does not display the progress bar during media playback.
There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
