Well, I was looking through the settings the other day because the pc kept going to sleep and I thought I had set it not to sleep. Well, while there, I found internet but didn't change it. The recording I had made was just under two hours, and Total Recorder did not shut down. so I had the impression that maybe I should try to find the setting for internet. I had to look for it, but I can't exactly tell you where it was, but I think it was under advanced settings. Today's recording was about 3.5 hours. The only problem I had with the scheduler was that I set the start time to 12:00 and the finish time to 15:30. When the time was up, Total Recorder informed me that I had almost 12 more hours to record. Trying to stop the recording was difficult. It would not pause or stop until I finally tried alt-F4. I didn't want to try that because I was afraid I would lose my recording. It did not. I was promptee to make a decision to stop or continue. I stopped it and my file was immediately saved.

There is so much to this program. If I can read about it, I think I will like it possibly more than Goldwave. I also will take a look at MP3 DC. It sounds like a good program. Goldwave and Windows 10 are not playing as nicely together as Windows 7.

Hmmm, I'll have to check out the power options for sleepers I guess. I don't think I have anything set to sleep here, but I certainly could be wrong. You would think though that if there were sleeping apps or hardware, that this would happen on a predictable cycle, but maybe not. But anyway, thanks for that suggestion, and I hope it continues to work for you, and will work for me as well.


BTW, what made you think of that <smile?>

Hi Larry. I was able to record 3.5 hours of streaming today. I used the scheduler.

The other thing I did was to change power settings so my PC would not sleep or turn off devices like the internet. This was something I never had to worry about in Windows 7. I just said don't sleep and nothing did, grin.

Carol,


I've been using TR for at least 15 years. Couldn't get along without it. I use it, for

the most part, for recording audio streams. The gap here might be that I am using the professional edition. With the pro edition, you can schedule recording sessions, and in theory, and even in fact, they can go on until you run out of drive space.

The streams that I record are .mp3, and the longest one I've recorded was twelve hours without a hitch.

I say all that to say this. I do have a problem more often than I would like with recordings that just quit with no real explanation. I think I would give my right arm if I could find a way to do something about it.

The thing is, the recording session doesn't shut down when this happens, but stays open until the end of its scheduled time. I even have TR set to reconnect when it loses the connection, at least that is what I think is happening here, but no go.

OK, maybe I wouldn't give my right arm, but maybe a steak or chicken dinner if someone could help me to figure this one out.

I kinda think it might be a problem with Comcast, but it is so random in nature, I can think of no way for them to check it out. Oh well.

I know this hasn't been very helpful, but maybe, just maybe someone might hear our cry, and come to our aide.

Is there anyone on the list that uses Total Recorder standard version 8.? I want to record something that runs for more than two hours. It always stops early. How can I get something to record until I come back and turn it off? Thanks. Also, are there either tutorials or a written manual? I hate trying to find things in the help screens from the internet.

Carol
