    I am having a ton of difficulty getting content on my PMC.
    I have done the decoder checkup and its ok (intervideo)
    The big issue is that the conversions seem to fail for random reasons..
    I have a playlist that is a mix of recorded tv from MCE and MPEG 2 home movies

    The errors I get range from...

    An error ocurred while converting the file to another format or quality
    level -- I get this mostly on recorded TV

    To something about a time out

    To something about RPC

    There is no ryhme or reason sometimes a show or movie will convert other
    times it wont

    As a workaround you can use WME to encode the content and then transfer it
    to the PMC via explorer.
    Any profile using WMV7/8/9 will work as long as the output resolution is
