OK! Maybe I didn't explain this very well: I have a small FM receiver that
runs on special frequencies. This unit is used topick up the wireless
signals in conference halls; as I am attending meetings and convensions
frequently. These frequencies are not within the normal FM range, so I won't
be able to have the signals picked up even if I had an Archoes FM recorder.

The thing is, that whenever the harddrive on my JB recorder spins, it
disturbs the sound that comes from the radio receiver, and goes into the
analog line-in on the recorder. It seems that this is caused because the
Line cable works as the antena on the receiver. My Idea was to have the
receiver connected to an Analog-Digital-converter box, and put them a couple
of feet away from my recorder, and simply connect the recorder digitally.

So, yes, as long as I am at homje, and have access to the computer, you can
connect to the computer's digital output (my sound card has actually digital
in/output). But this doesn't solve my problem when away from home! That's
where I hoped someone in here had a good idea, to come up with!

Thanks for your input!
