    Hi folks,
    MP or my computer sometimes crashes during recording and dvr-ms file is not finished. In this cases it is usually impossible to play ti, convert it to MPEG etc. I spend a lot of time on it and tried many programs and tricks, but no success (e.g. with Graph edit, VideoReDo, DVRToolbox and many other). Finally I found program that works always for me! So if you need it, try SUPER (Simplified Universal Player Encoder & Renderer is a GUI to ffmpeg, mencoder, mplayer). Its GUI is little bit unusual, but it works always with following algorithm:
    1) drag-and-drop (damaged) dvr-ms files on SUPER's window
    2) Right click pop-up menu - in save management set the output path
    3) Set the output format - Stream copy must not be performed on damaged dvr-ms files, but if your recode movie it works
    4) Check files to encode
    5) Click encode

    It works quite a long time, but it helps.

    Maybe you have some other ways of doing it, but I found this one working.
