HI Pam,Actually, your response was interesting, and I have experience with recording both audio and video from broadcast sources.
But, that isn't the problem I tried to describe. I'm talking about how Replay saves a second file, which is about a minute long after recording the show. So, I end up with two files. Yes, I know I can just delete these extra files, but is there anything I can do to make sure they don't show up in the first place?

Robin,I don't know if you've ever programmed a vcr, but Replay works much the same way. Getting the time exactly right is difficult because the station's timeand/or network time may not exactly agree with your computer's clock.I have a particular show I've been trying to get just right; and I can varythe clodk by a few seconds and end up with the very beginning or end beingcut off. I suppose if everyone, listeners and broadcasters alike, were tosynchronized their clock with WWV or the atomic clock of their particular country you might have a chance of getting the program exactly right; but who's going to do that? In fact, local stations will sometimes even run over a little on one program and just make up time somewhere else in the program day, especially if they aren't carrying any national or syndicated programs or hourly newscasts. With the automated programming on somestations you might even see the news start a few seconds late, or perhaps asong gets cut off for the news. The best you can do is play with the timing and try to get a little extrafrom another program rather than lose any time from the program you want torecord. Hope this helps.

Is this an error in the way I programmed the recording? (they are all scheduled for the exact time I want)? 2. Is there a cure? thanks, Robin --To unsubscribe: e-mail blindreplay-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with unsubscribe in subjectTo contact list owner: e-mail blindreplay-admins@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
