    have Nero 10, Windows 7 with Windows Media Player. When Windows Media
    player downloads and records an off the air tv program, it saves the
    program in .wtv format.
    If I transfer this program to a dvd disk in this format, it will not
    play on a traditional dvd player that is attached to a tv set.

    Any suggestions as to what I should do to prepare a disk that can be
    played on a conventional dvd player attached to a tv set? I am not
    wedded to using Nero 10. If advised, can use a different program.

    best, Aaorn

    You need to convert the file to one of the many that DVD players
    typically can play. You should also research just what file formats your
    player can play. You may simply have too old or too lame a player.

    The 'specs' on your player should be easy to search up.
