Windows ATSC PVR/DVR Software With Resolution Switching

I have a KWorld USB ATSC tuner that I'd like to use with my main computer and an antenna in concert with PVR software.

I've tried a couple of different kinds of PVR software, but so far none have allowed me to change the recording resolution.

My Pivos Xios android media player does not like low compression 1080i MPEG2 video, skipping, freezing, losing audio, and having the audio go out of sink.

I know I could re-encode the files, but I'd rather not have to do that. Does anyone know of Windows PVR/DVR software that allows you to change the resolution the video is recorded at and/or allows you to encode in Mpeg4/ H.264?

Alternatively, does anyone know of a software that will automatically convert the recorded programs, once the files appear in the directory, to MPEG4/H.264?

VLC is the 'Swiss Army Knife' of video software.

Many folks may only use it's play back functionality, but it's a capable trans-coder and streaming server as well.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)

Member mdavej over at AVS Forum recommended a program called MCEBuddy, which monitors a folder and can automatically convert to a format of your choice. I'm converting to high quality 720p MKV, which seems to play fine on the Xios.
