Default Tivo Like Radio - Pause Play Rewind Record - Software?

I didnt know if this is the right place for this post, but I hope it is. I am looking for a piece of software that will cache my line in audio so I can play with it like a Tivo for example. I want to hook up a FM radio to my PC through Line In and have my software cache it and then I can rewind, pause, play, record, etc...

Is there any software that can do this?

The only one that I found/saw believe it or not was Windows Media Center Edition. And for that you need a PCI card that has a built in FM Tuner...

Any and All information is greatly apreciated. Thanks In Advance!

Dunno. I've never wanted to record from FM since I discovered computers.

If you buy the full version of RealOne Player, you can save streamed files, but I'm not sure if you can change the source to something other than an internet connection.


Don\'t hate the player...Hate the game...

The reason Id like it is because of the Friday and Saturday night dance mixes that come on the radio. Ive recorded a few and am happy with the results. I use something called "SoundCapture" and it encodes to MP3 on the fly. I have it set to 128k and it works fine I also rip internet radio this way...

But, when I messed with my HTPC downstairs and I upgraded to Windows Media Center and saw that option, I thought that was really cool. And I know its a simple piece of software to run, so I just wanted to know if anybody knew of one. I searched a little bit and all I found was stuff to do what I want but with internet radio, not a line in source.
