Two things I would suspect as possible causes.

1. Firewall permissions. Does the batch file or the program need permission to go through the firewall?

2. URL problem, hence unable to reolve the host.

1,I thought my firewall might be a problem so I turned it off for two minutes while i
started the bat file from cmd command.
The same thing happened.Nothing.Same error.
2,As I get the url from winamp as it's running the stream I can't see how it can be wrong.
(when I do try the file win amp is off of course)

It's really strange.
I have a mate who has tried the setup and it works for him.This is why I suspect it's something with my PC.A setting somewhere to allow this file to start.Something in internet options or something.I really don't have a clue what?
I googled the error and can't seem to find hint.I think I might put this down to a non starter.
It's not that importent to me I can live without it.

Good news I sussed it.
When inserting the url if I put it between quotation marks ie "url"
It works OK.
Some body somewhere else give me the idea.
Strange thing.
Anyway I tested and it works great.
So I can go to work and watch a Tuesday night game the next day.
The reg change was the thing to set the scheduled task,so the medals are given here : :hooray:

Whey Hey! Well done Keith.

I was close to the truth though - it was to do with the URL.

Another case solved.

That's it. :ura1:
It always seems it's something simple like that.
The thing is sometimes we start looking for big problems when it's really a little one.
The bad news is the wife asked what I had been doing?So like a fool I told her. :dohhh:
"Well if you can record the game,you can come to town with me shopping" :dribble:
There's always a down side. :cry2:
