Rename the filetype of a recording?

Sorry, this is a newguy question and i searched but couldnt find an answer. I am recording using a HD PVR. i also have some divx avi files of the same episode recorded. Once i watch the recording i would like to replace the huge .ts file with the compressed .avi file.

Can i just name the avi the same filename and delete the ts? can i put it in a different watched folder?

I've just been working through this myself, it can be made to work, see these two threads for some more info:
