|I schedule some batch runs to capture programs that I can't listen to real-time. I use a combination of powershell and bat files to start streamwriter, and then some record-from-soundcard software, and then a timer to close things down after the appropriate time has elapsed.|
Here is a sample batch file that I start from a powershell script:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\streamWriter\streamWriter.exe" -p http://provisioning.streamtheworld.com/pls/WXRTFM.pls
Sometimes I get sound, and sometimes I don't. When the program starts WITHOUT sound, I cannot get it to produce anything even though I try other stations, try stopping and restarting the stream from the control buttons, etc. But then I manually restart (or automatically start streamwriter the next time a scheduled program starts) and everything works fine!
I am using 126.96.36.199 (which I think is the latest?) on a Windows 10 64-bit system. I can provide the system details if that will help.
If someone knows what's going on, I'd be grateful to know.
