How to Convert PVR Recording to MP4 for Playback on Mac
“I recently bought a freeview DBTPVR and it says in the manual that it creates MP4 videos. However when I record TV, it created a TVshow .pvr file (in FAT32 USB stick). My question is how can I convert that to a file playable on a Mac? Is there any Mac PVR software that can already do it?” --- Questioned by one of the PVR users.
Yes, of course there is one---Doremisoft Video Converter for Mac (Video Converter) is the particular Mac PVR software that can helpby converting PVR to MP4.
