If the streaming media is real audio or some versions of wma, Streambox VCR
will do the job even better. It grabs the datastream directly and can grab as
many different streams at the same time as your bandwidth permits.

It was forced off the market by Real a few years ago while in beta. Therefore
you'll have to google for it. It is pretty crude and several of the features
don't work but it does a jam-up job at its core purpose.

For shoutcast (streaming mp3), the earlier versions of winamp in the 2.x range
will write the stream directly to disc instead of having to go through the
audio channel and maybe get polluted with other sounds produced by other
programs. Simply select as the output whatever format writer you like. WAV
and MP3 are supported for sure. Others probably are.

Either are superior to Total Recorder which is nothing more than a virtual
tape recorder. Especially when the computer is in use for other things at the
same time. TR is subject to all the things that corrupt windoze sound
including other sounds, pauses caused by other activity and network
congestion. Capturing the original data stream alleviates all of these
