Thanks,I tried one of my links yesterday. I don't remember the actual length. After I put it into RAV, the program began to tune, but never actually connected for more than three minutes.
It might have been an issue at the website, so I'm going to test another file or so.
I don know that the player which the site, MLB.com, brings up, is a flash player. And, last week, something was mentioned about flv streams but I don't remember. Maybe this is more my issue.

Following up on last weekends discussion: I happened to stumble on a stream url of 130 characters or so in length which is the wmp link for WDBO, Orlando. I loaded it into RAV and it tuned and recorded fine. The limit, Robin, that you are probably thinking of is that for the name of the show which, if memory serves, is limited to 60 characters in length. WE 6.1 truncated the reading of the WDBO url; but it was all there in Rav's edit field and recorded and tuned. So, if there is a limit to length of stream urls, it's greater than 130 which ought to take care of most urls out there. oh yes, fortunately, the rav media guide has a much shorter url available for WDBO. --To unsubscribe: e-mail blindreplay-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with unsubscribe in subject To contact list owner: e-mail blindreplay-admins@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
