I have found the longer i have had this receiver the more i use the rewind feature after not thinking i would.

All the stations i have noticed i can rewind about 43-44mins like it says.
Today i wanted to hear the training camp show for the Steelers which started at 10.
I was upset that i could not get to the radio by the appx 10:45 time to rewind and hear it from the start{left radio on so it would record}.

Well about 11:20 i get into my truck rewind all the way back and notice im still hearing the morning show. Huh?

I look down and what do you know it is 1hour and 34 minutes back on the display. So i have noticed listing all day that on the 124{nfl} it records about 1hr and 34mins on this channel.

Anyone else notice it recording longer on any other channels?
Or is it maybe cause its a "sports" radio you get longer on those channels. And why cant it do this long on other channels.

That sounds pretty cool. Maybe Its because they record at a lower bit rate. I think they should really say this it this is true! Many more might make the switch!

I remember reading this in a thread a while ago that someone noticed that on the talk stations you could record much more than 44 minutes.

Yea it must be the bit rate for the talk stations, I tried it on another.
You get twice the time on them, so far i have found it to be about 1hr 34mins on them as to the 44 for music.

Funny they dont tell you about that cause i would think they would know it does this.

Most of the time a company will list the shorter time. Because if they say more most people would complain if they did not get that.

I usually get just over 45 minutes on the music channels and roughly 1 hour and 10 minutes on Talk Central. In the past I've gotten over an hour and a half on some talk channels...but I can't recall which one(s).

Very cool to know. Once January comes, I'll be listening to Howard Stern on my hour long drive to work, so it'll be cool to be able to rewind, listen to what I missed and then skip over commercials
