Possible to play Windows Media Center recorded tv (dvr-ms) on OSX w/o conversion?

I have an HTPC running Windows Vista Media Center, and use it quite heavily to record TV. I have a Macbook I use for work that I'd like to be able to have TV on during those late night coding sessions. Sure, I can pick it up and take it to the couch in front of the TV, but that doesn't work so well if my wife wants to watch something else, and I can't use my external display.

"VLC will play my Recorded TV directly off the HTPC's Samba share. The quality isn't as good, but I didn't expect it to work anyway. It's ""good enough"" for my needs, though.

Other references I found about VLC for this said conversion is necessary, but not with version 1.0+."
