Many users like to scheduling recordings on their home computer from any browser. This and other great features are possible because the recordings schedule is from the RadioTime service. But actual recordings are made on your local computer.
This week we simplified recording housekeeping with a new “Recording Schedule” page that combines the old “Recording Queue” and a summary of “Recording History”. The new page shows current, future, and past recordings at a glance. You can cancel recordings, re-schedule expired recordings, drill down to change options, or stop live recordings in process.
Next week a new tab on the “Recording Detail” page will list the history for a single recording. We’ll be adding more troubleshooting details, for example if the recorder jumped sources for a better Internet feed. Next week we’ll also release a new Windows client that can record more than one program at once. Another reason to change the recording schedule page is to create a simple way to select a particular live recording to stop or listen in. With the old model we tried showing recordings under queue, then history. Both confused users so we made this single list.
As always, once recordings are complete you can listen, move, burn, or delete them from your local computer using iTunes or your favorite music software.
The best way to report a problem or get more detail on a recording is through our Library page. To report a problem, listen from the Library and then click “Report a problem” and tell us what you heard instead. We’ll know what should have been recorded so we can fix any stream or schedule problems – usually the same day.
Please send feedback about what you like and don’t like with the RadioTime service using the report a problem link or email@example.com.
