pc memory can and does play a significant role in how RAV and its 
converter may perform.
Let me illustrate with today's wjr recording of noon to 2 pm.  The 
recording itself was fine beginning at roughly 12:04 PM AND ending at 
around 3:01 pm as scheduled.
However, the automatic conversion failed at the 25 minute mark -- not 
surprising as the desktop I have down here in Florida has only 512 mb 
of ram and I was listening to a U of fl softball game at the time, RAV 
was recording a show, ie6 was open, I had a telnet connection open for 
email -- well, you get the drift.
Fortunately, I save the 
original recordings so I had Switch, which is one of my context menu items 
when I bring up the recorded file in explorer, 
handle the conversion -- and all was fine.
Returning to the thread, wjr recorded flawlessly and a spot check of the 
resulting file confirms this.

As one uses RAV more and more, you learn what to expect and anticipate -- 
and often different pcs work differently.
It's analogous to recording with a vhs:  most of the time, the tv shows 
set up to record, record.
Upon occasion, they just don't for any of a variety of reasons -- my 
wife's favorite being when pbs stations do their fundraisers messing up 
starting times of shows, what shows run, and all the rest.
