    I got my Droid X yesterday and connected to my DirecTV dvr. It showed all the shows I had recorded. When i tried to watch them on my Droid it said the media type was not supported. Is there a player i can download to play these files or is there a patch i can load to get the Droid player to view these videos?

    RockPlayer ($9.95 now that it is out of beta) is a video player that can most video files, otherwise, you will have to convert these files to a different format.

    Unfortunately, I recall that content on a DirecTV DVR is actually protected with some form of DRM (copy protection), so you might have to use a transfer utility with conversion capability to be able to convert them.
