Default Do you have to record the whole program, or can you record portions

I primarily listen to talk as opposed to songs, and the Stiletto says you can record up to 100 hours of programming. My question is can you record just part of a program? Or edit a recorded program to remove the parts you don't want? Or are you pretty much stuck with an entire 5 hours program even if all you want to keep is like a 5 minute segment?

You can record a partial of the program but it's not as easy as the S50. The S50 pretty much gave you the ability to pick a starting point and and ending point in the buffer to record. This option is not on the Stiletto. The only thing available seems more geared toward recording schedules. Nothing stops you from scheduling a 5 minute recording, however, how you would know where to record?

The Stiletto is much better than the S50 in so many different ways. With that said the S50 had a couple features that I really kind of miss. I suppose this is part of the master plan to get you to buy the next product.

So with the S50, could you say put an hour of live satelite radio feed into the buffer, and then go through it and save only the portions of the program you want to keep?

Not exactly. The S50 only has a 40 minute buffer. On top of that the buffer is always filling so it's a moving target. This will make it difficult for you to pick out which part you want to store.

Also, you cannot take parts of a completed recording and pick it apart. Only what's in the buffer is available for storing segments but, again, it's a moving target so it would be difficult.

Your best solution is to somehow record from your computer or move the recording to the computer through the real time headphone or line-out jack. Not exactly the best solution in the world.

I have the same problem. I listen to a lot of operas on the Metropolitan Opera channel and some of these operas are three hours long with a number of acts. If I hit "love" to record at the start of the opera, it will record only the first act. When the act two screen appears the recording stops. In other words, it reads the first act as one "song" and when act one is over it stops recording. Unlike timer recordings, "love" recordings are song oriented. The Stiletto will not see the entire opera as one program, rather, it will read each act as a separate program. My solution is to timer record the whole opera in three hour blocks via the home dock.

If I hit the "love" button to record a particular segment in an act (say a duet or some solo I want to save rather than the whole act) the library recording will not only contain the part I wanted but the buffer recorded material as well. There is no way to take highlights from a program only, you will always get the buffer as well. My way around that, if I want to save the excerpt that is, is to fast forward through the buffered parts until I get to the selection I want and record that selection only to either my mini-disk recorder or my Pocketdish.

Thanks for all the info. I had hoped the technology had reached a point where we could easily record/edit chunks of stuff, but sounds like it hasn't really gotten to that point yet (actually, the technology probably has, I assume it's a copyright issue that stops it from working the way I'd hoped).

One last question, the "love" button, is that the only way to record with the Stiletto? Or can you also hit a button to start recording and then hit a button to stop recording?

You can hit the LOVE button to start recording and then it asks you if you want to go to the top of the hour or select another option. You can always select to the top of the hour and then turn the channel when you want the recording to end. When you do this it will ask if you want to "save partial" or "delete partial". In this case you would choose "save partial" and then you'd be able to get from the time you started until you wanted to end. Not elegant but should work. I haven't tried this.
