.wtv conversion?

I'm desperate!

I recorded the Ryder cup last night from One HD using Windows Media Centre in W7 with the intention of watching it on my networked TV. Naturally I had to convert the .wtv file to .dvd-rms so as to be able to the convert to mpg: normally right-clicking and selecting "convert to dvd-rms" does the trick. I tried several times, and each time the conversion goes as far as about 2hrs 40mins worth of TV and stops. The dvd-rms file is fine, but the original .wtv file had some 6hrs of golf on it.

I don't want to miss the final day's play which is in the middle of the night here in Australia, and don't want to sit at the computer to watch the .wtv file!

Any ideas on a free converter, or how to ensure the full (long) file gets to be converted by right-clicking?

I am bumping this because I still haven't found any answer despite posting on several other forums. It appears that .wtv files will stop converting to .dvr-ms files at some fairly random point, truncating the recording. I wonder if this is some sort of crude way of ensuring you can't migrate recordings?
