How to check the presence of an audiosignal/webstream when recording

Hi all,

I use an AppleScript to record a daily 4-hour radioshow coming in through Windows Media Player → WireTap → iTunes → iPod. This works fine except when the stream stops due to whatever data-flow problem.

Is there ANY way to check if the stream is still providing an audio signal and, if not, get it to reload?

As some of you probably already found out, Windows Media Player is not scriptable (except for GUI) so there is not way to get te player state (?) but I guess the presence of an audio signal can be checked in the Finder?

Any thoughts on this would be very welcome…

thx. Joshua.

nobody? really nobody?


Thanks for looking anyway.
