thanks Gary,

I'm going to try this before I send a file. 

Not sure if sending a sample to this list would be useful as it is a 
subscription product, and I don't want to give away my password (Grin).

the stuff I'm having problems with is a flash-based produc and the URLs are 
real long. WHen they show up in Windows Media Player, They take three lines. 
So, I think I might try the text editor trick.

Wonder why Replay does this.

  Robin, I believe I know what you are talking about with respect to some URL'S 
being truncated when trying to paste them in to the basic Replay Av field. this 
seems to happen with surfer network or URL'S that have java script links. try 
this one:
  I found the best way to deal with links like this is to be sure and maximize 
whatever editor you may use for text, paste any URL'S into a file making sure 
the URl is on one line, re copy it to the clipboard, paste it into replay Av. 

  A lot of times it is best to forget about the URL finder within Replay Av. 
once you get the radio station audio playing, determine which player is playing 
the audio. if windows media player is being used, ALT tab to the player, look 
in the properties and get the URL which would be the location, which would be 
read only, copy it to the clipboard and paste it into Replay av. if a browser 
window pops up, just go to the address bar, copy the URL from it, paste it into 
Replay Av, try it. Replay will truncate passwords when trying to tune into XM 
stations too. I had to go to the XM site, shorten my password to get it to work 
in Replay Av. 

  I would like it if you could choose whether you wanted to use the replay 
tuner, or tune with a browser with each individual show instead of going into 
the settings and changing from the replay tuner settings.
