I recently got myself a USB TV tuner and have started recording TV with it and Windows Media Center in Windows 7. It is fantastic! I love how well Media Center works its so easy.

One thing I wanted to know was how to change the location where Windows Media Center records TV to. It’s quite easy,

Method:

  1. Open Windows Media Center.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Scroll down to TV and click on it.
  4. Click Recorder.
  5. Now click on Recorder Storage.
  6. Change Record on drive from C: to the desired one.
  7. Click Save to save the changes.

How to change the default TV recording location.

I haven’t actually changed it myself, because I had planned to change it to one of the USB drives I have plugged into my media PC. But I haven’t had time to see if and how recording to the USB drive effects recording performance.
