Very interesting. I was trying (again) to use my Jrivers Media center to record streaming Sirius internet radio that i subscribed to so i can listen to programing I miss being able to listen to on my regular Sirius satellite radio (hooked up to my stereo) due to work scheduling issues. I can use the URL function which records in MP3 or the Recorder/mixer function which record in .WAV

However, I cannot seem to get it to actually record anything, every file i get is blank. (no sound)

Thank you very much for verifying this for me.

I have installed Audacity (which is free) to record the streams, but it makes me mad that i cannot record with my "audiophile" program that i paid for and does do the same thing.

I mean it DOES record, but it will not actually capture the streams and i cannot figure out why.

I prefer the .WAV, which i can convert to .CDA so i can burn the program (with JRivers) to disk so I can play it on my main stereo system thru my Universal disk player.

Hate to be a party pooper, but all this discussion of recording streams is getting a bit close to forum rule #4

4) No piracy or discussion of piracy allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc).

I use WMCapture for screen recording and for audio recording of my on-line radio stations. I bought it for a small fee many years ago and have made at least 50 tutorials with it and recorded a lot of music. Never had any problems. Maybe you want to check their free trial. I think the pro version costs only $39.95.

I specifically stated in my post that i pay for the service to avoid just what happened in prior posts to this thread. The Sirius internet radio is available for download, but only with smartphone apps, and since i am using a PC i needed a way to capture it.

100% legal.

I will be staying with the Audacity software, since i spent two days with fireberd and badcrc
learning how to use it, and it works rather well.

I was continuing to try and see if i could get software i DID pay for to work as advertised.

Thanks for everyone's help here.

Marking this solved.
