Can I convert HD programs to SD in Windows Media Center?


I am running Windows 8.1 Preview with Media Center.In order to maximize recording storage space I would like to record all Recorded Content in SD.Unfortunately I am not getting any option within Media Center to convert such.


There is no such option within Windows Media Center to convert HD to SD programs.For series recordings you can set preferences but for an individual show you can not.So the best bet will be to use an external hard disk.Otherwise You need to use third party application (eg. Xilisoft HD Video Converter)

Keep in mind that when you convert HD to SD, your image quality will degrade.SD images will NEVER look as good as HD.
