No, I'm not planning on recording SIRIUS, but I am trying to record some radio programs that I really want to keep.

I need to be able to record on my laptop and in the Windows Media Audio format (I can also use WAV or lossless formats). The audio stream is in the WMA format.

If anyone can help me out, I would greatly appreciate it. I also plan on sharing these "radio programs" as soon as I can (and I know there are a few of you out there that would really want this). :)

Sorry to hear that, I never use Windows Media Player, maybe someone here can answer this does Windows Media Player has a recording feature? That has a WMA format, because I know my co-worker once in a while gives me files in WMA format and I have to convert it over to mp3, because I prefer that format.

But Thank you for the point, h3xagram!

Try Total Recorder .. it's not free ($17.95 for Standard Edition, $35 for Professional Edition), but it works well. There's an evaluation available on their site. It creates a virtual soundcard driver that you can set as your default sound output .. or some applications will even let you choose a soundcard for them to output through (Winamp does.. not sure if WMP will or not)

Thanks for the suggestion (points for you too). :)

But I actually found a solution... Replay AV 8. I just have to copy the URL into the program, label it, and it will dump three to four 1-hour programs in 11-12 minutes.

I have a big project ahead of me: 862 one-hour programs of content. I almost have 200 programs downloaded so far with the printable information for all of the programs.

It also captures the content WITHOUT transcoding or converting. What is dumped is the original source. Great program. :)

If that doesn't work I use a program called i-Sound and have been using it for 3 years now with no flaws at all. You can set timers for when you want to record. Get it here. PM me for more information.
