Well, I just tried tuning the station again.  I did as you suggested, but
after pressing the applications key plus t there was
Once again silence.  I did select windows media player for conversion after
recording, but as I heard no sound I doubt there would have been a recording
if I had attempted one.  

The stream shown by the url finder is:

Now I just tried clicking on the link which appeared in my own message and
got a message saying that Windows Internet Explorer could not play the file
because it was unable to open the url.  The url could not be found.  

I wish I could take a screen shot of this site when I try loggin in.
Unfortunately my keyboard is non-standard and the key which I believe should
be the print screen key causes my computer to shut down!  Wouldn't I have to
send the screen shot to a sighted person anyway to have it read? 

I hope someone here can figure out what the problem may be.  

The actual site to which I go to play the live stream is www.kaamradio.com/

Thanks again.

My guess is you did something wrong. Try this just to be sure.
Go to the listview where your stations are listed in RAV 8.
Arrow down to the station and stop there. Now press your applications key.
Press "T" for Tune to station. See if the stream works.

If the stream works you will hear the audio through your speakers. This is a
small test.

You will be in a Tuner dialog box with various buttons. This is for WMP
streams. Use your tab key to navigate to these buttons:
Stop, Volume slider and so on. You use space bar to activate one of these
buttons in the Tuner dialog box that pops up. I have not touched the mute
button. To switch back and forth between RAV 8 and Tuner dialog box use your
ALT+TAB keyboard command. To close the Tuner dialog box use ALT+F4 command
and you will be back on RAV 8 program. Just letting you know all this.

If you get no audio after doing applications key and "T" then something is
wrong for sure. Many factors: bad URL link, check properties area to see if
you have told it the right media player choice like Windows Media player and
so on.

Can you send me the actual URL address you were trying to record?

Not sure if you know how so I am posting instructions here:

Highlight station in listview box.
Press Applications key.
Choose "P" for Properties for Properties dialog xcreen.
Go to Basic tab page.
Tab a few times in the Basic page until you hear URL: edit box.
Copy the URL address yu have in there.
Press escape key to leave without affecting your settings in properties

Post this URL to this list for me and others to test.

I tested WMKV today and it is working as you say. No issues. You are correct
with yur analysis.

I hope I didn't forget anything.
