I have Windows 7 TV Files recorded as *.wtv by Windows Media Centre. Can anyone tell me if they are playable on the WDTV Models ? or if not are there plans to enable these to be played.

You can rip the WTV file to a DVRMS file using the WTVconverter program that comes with Window 7.  For now, DVRMS files are supported.  Since this is a rip and not a transcode the process will only take a couple of minutes per file.
