    id really appreciate it if anyone could help me out with this.

    All id like to be able to do is record radion onto my pc so i can listen to it when i get back from work

    Currently i have my computer, speakers and a reciver (Pioneer VSX-D710S)

    My speakers are linked into the receiver and then i have a lead linking my receiver to the line in on my computers soundcard

    It sounds to me like you are ready to rumble. All you need is some recording software - once you have that, simply set up the recording parameters (mono/stereo; bitrate), and turn on your receiver and hit record.

    Am I missing something obvious here? Recording from the radio should be no different than recording your voice through a microphone plugged into the same line-in jack on the sound card.

    Hope this helps.

    It might be simpler to record with a VCR. Connect the radio ouput into the VCR's audio input. Turn radio on. Set VCR timer for radio program. Set VCR to use its aux input. All done.

    Just a thought.
