Current Server Issue 9/29/20

We encountered a server failure late yesterday and are working to resolve the issue.  We are doing our best to get things back online and in a normal operating mode.  While our new Amazon Web Services environment is supposed to be a much better reliable solution, they provided us with this message this morning:

Your volume experienced a failure due to multiple component failures and we were unable to recover it. Although EBS volumes are designed for reliability, including being backed by multiple physical drives, we are still exposed to durability risks when multiple concurrent component failures occur before we are able to restore redundancy.

Obviously not something we wanted to hear, but we do understand computers and hardware will still fail. Please accept our apology for the downtime and just know we are working as fast as we can to get things restored.

We will continue to add updates to this post.

9/30/20 – Update

We have been restoring older recordings in batches and it will continue to run until we’ve restored everything we can.  All new recordings are working as normal.  If you have an older file, just give it a little time and it should update soon.

10/6/20 – Update

Amazon has been worthless in helping us.  They actually tried to blame us for their hardware failing.  We have been able to restore all uploaded recordings for the past year which include Ad-Free Ticket shows.  We’re still restoring Ticket and other recordings for the month of September.  We’re trying to prevent overloading the server that processes things so it’s a slow process.  As for recordings beyond that point, we have the raw data for those for the past year but we’ll be restoring on a per request basis.  If you are missing old recordings you need that happened between September 17, 2019 to present, shoot us an email support@usaveit.com and we’ll work on it.  Be sure to include your account email, recording date needed and show name if you have it.

iOS 14 Update Issues

With the latest iOS update we’ve learned our player within our Dash has stopped working for iPhones/iPads. It gives an error saying to update your flash player in all browsers. We’re a little confused with this error as our player is an HTML5 player, but we’ve realized the player just needs to be updated with new libraries and code. There’s no need to try updating flash b/c iOS hasn’t really supported flash in a while. While we are working to update our player to get rid of this code you have a couple of options in the meantime.

  • Download our app from the app store and use it for now. Our player also needs an upgrade due to the forward and rewind being tough to deal with, but you can play and listen to audio on your iOS device.
  • If you have access to podcast feeds, grab your feed and plug it into a great app like Overcast.fm. If you have no feeds but have an account to create one, then go through setting one up and adding your recordings to that feed, then add it to an app like mentioned above.
  • Listening through a desktop is an option if you are sitting at a desk, but most having this issue like to listen on the go. We just wanted to make sure you knew this is an option to if you are stationary.
  • If you’re a technical person, reverting to previous iOS version is also an option. I did read where the iOS 14 has several other issues lingering until a next update.
  • If your phone is still working, you might consider waiting until Apple’s next update for their bug fixes and hopefully we’ll have our issue resolved.

We hope to have the player updated by week’s end, barring any unforeseen issues. We appreciate your patience and feel free to let us know any issues beyond what we’re talking about. Just email support@ and we’ll get back to you.

Record Your Favorite Talk Show Hosts

DVR For Radio

Have you ever had to miss your favorite radio shows because you were busy with work or something else? Well, there’s a new software platform available to help you out.

The software known as uSave.it allows you to easily record all of your favorite talk shows and radio broadcasts via an online platform, and it lets you play them back whenever you have the time to listen. In a lot of ways, it’s like having a DVR system for radio broadcasts.

There’s quite a bit going on under the hood of uSave.it. So, let’s go over what it can do and who it’s for.

Its Capabilities

If you’ve used a DVR, you already know a little bit about uSave.it. The software allows you to set a recording time, and it’ll automatically start recording live broadcasts while you’re busy with other things.

Starting a recording is easy. All you have to know is the show’s streaming URL, call letters, or station name, and you can set the software to automatically record the show once it starts.

After a recording is complete, you can go back and listen to it.

That’s not all you’re allowed to do, though. Most of the subscription tiers have editing tools that allow you to remove or export segments of a recording, and some of them allow you to download the recording for your personal archives.

There are two types of uSave.it software, and both types are split into two tiers. First, you have a variant designed for personal use. That comes in a basic package and a more advanced package. The difference is mainly how many hours’ worth of audio you can record, and the higher tier allows you to edit your recorded audio.

It’s not all for personal use, though. Professional content creators can use uSave.it to create content, archive their recordings, and automatically manage their own broadcasts through an embedded media player.

Of course, the four tiers require a subscription, but every new user gets a 30-day free trial, and the cheapest tier is only five dollars per month. Even the professional tiers are fairly priced.

Let’s go over five of the talk shows that you can record with uSave.it. That should give you a good understanding about what type of content you can record with the software.

Record Rush Limbaugh

If you’re in the mood for some conservative commentary, The Rush Limbaugh Show has you covered. It has topped the charts for American radio stations since 1988, and it’s still growing in popularity.

The show mostly consists of conversations about conservative views and politics, and Rush tries to make sense out of the current political landscape.

If you want to record Rush Limbaugh, create your account and when scheduling the show, just enter the show name and uSave.it will have the stream info you need to use.

Record Michael Savage

If you want a bit more variety, you can record Savage Nation. It’s hosted by Michael Savage on more than 400 national stations, and he covers a wide range of topics.

The show is politically themed, and it aligns with his conservative views, but you can expect to hear conversations about sports, philosophy, and culture, too. His nutritional and medicinal expertise is also featured on the show, and he frequently talks about new findings in those fields.

Once you sign up for uSave.it, just enter the show name and uSave.it will have the stream info you need to use.

Record Sean Hannity

The Hannity Show offers a different take on conservative political commentary. While it has a lot in common with Rush Limbaugh’s show, it focuses more on conspiracy theories, and Sean Hannity doesn’t shy away from being controversial.

This is a show for people who love controversial content, and Sean’s personal relationship with the president allows him to talk about the president’s perspective in a more intimate way.

If you want to record the Sean Hannity show, create your account and when scheduling the show, just enter the show name and uSave.it will have the stream info you need to use.

Record Mark Levin

There are actually two different shows that you can listen to that are hosted by Mark Levin. The Mark Levin Show is his main platform, and it features a variety of content, and he has a show on Fox News called Liberty and Levin.

Mark’s background as a lawyer and his multiple positions in the political arena tend to be major themes in both of his shows. He often speaks about different bills and laws, and he comments on them from a conservative standpoint.

Mark has also helped guide Rush Limbaugh’s legal department, and he was a major part of Ronald Reagan’s advisory team. His content isn’t as controversial as Sean Hannity’s, but he frequently draws on his past experiences to promote conservative viewpoints.

If you’re interested in recording The Mark Levin Show with uSave.it, create your account and when scheduling the show, just enter the show name and uSave.it will have the stream info you need to use.

Record Laura Ingraham

Laura Ingraham is the most prominent female talk show host in the conservative commentary arena, and her show The Ingraham Angle has grown in popularity due to her willingness to jump into debates that others shy away from.

Her show doesn’t focus on any specific political topic. She likes to talk about everything from immigration to racism, and she doesn’t mind generating controversy.

You can expect her show to draw from her experiences on The Rush Limbaugh Show, Savage Nation, and other high-profile conservative shows.

If you want to record the Ingraham Angle, create your account and when scheduling the show, just enter the show name and uSave.it will have the stream info you need to use.

Final Thoughts

If you like to listen to radio talk shows, you probably know how difficult it can be with a busy schedule. By signing up for uSave.it, you can record and save your favorite shows to listen to them at your leisure.

The prices are fair, the different tiers offer something for everyone, and you’ll never have to miss another broadcast from your favorite host.
