I've been using PlayOn since it was in beta and I was excited to hear about PlayLater, until I used it. It actually embeds DRM in the videos it records. This means I couldn't even stream it via PlayOn to my TV or through Windows Media Center. Did I miss a setting somewhere or am I right in assuming this is what happened?

Yeah, I didn't know about the DRM bit either when I first posted. Somewhere in the user's guide it mentions that you can only playback "recordings" on the computer that recorded them.

I tried PlayLater today, I am unable to get any recordings to play. It looks like the recording has a .plv extension. Windows Media Player won't play it and neither will VLC Player.

They're DRM'd -- they should play on the same computer with the PlayLater/PlayOn software.

Have you rebooted your PC after installing PlayLater? After a reboot, you should be able to play them in Windows Media player.
