Interesting that you're losing 15 seconds! Ours has been "seamless" with a few seconds overlapped from segment-to-segment. (Going on rusty memory, I think there is a checkbox for this.)

It's making the seamless recordings despite the fact that it's on a USB drive AND running on an older PC, (XP/SP2) which is simultaneously running the following:

1) a streaming app to continuously monitor our stream,
2) an EAS box status indicator (in IE),
3) a listener connections monitor for our stream (Firefox),
4) a weather/temperature monitor (also Firefox).

So yeah, that machine is huffing and puffing, but it's handling the load! ;)

And yes, for $18, you couldn't ask for a nicer app! It has other features we don't even use... just the half hourly audio logging. :)

It is a bit quirky to set up and get going, but once it's going... it just runs and runs! :)
Willie...
(I get zero renumeration for recommending it, I'm just a happy user.) :)

I second Willie's recommendation. Hard to beat for $18.

I use hour-long files. We lose about 15 seconds at the end of each hour. This could probably be reduced if you used half-hour files as Willie does.
