Any suggestions on this one?

I’ve built my own little radio station that broadcasts throughout the house (and neighbours) courtesy of one of those DSE USB transmitters.

Now, I’m absolutely wrapped in the performance of the transmitter and for the most part Windows Media Player 9.

However, sometimes I need to use the computer for other things like :horrified Word, XL, Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer (Begging for advise from you guys) ;) and the whole thing turns to static.

Not good enough for Radio BMC! :mad:

OK, I figure somewhere in the system there is a hierarchy system for resources and Windows Media Player doesn’t figure when it comes to the crunch.

Sooooo, how do I tell everything else Noooooooo, :groan: YOU you wait!!!!!!???????

Yes I know, I make things far too simple~! :)

Not sure if this is what you want but if Using XP > Task Manager > Processes and right click wmplayer and set the priority to High or Realtime
Don't ask me if it will work or not I've never had reason to play around with those settings before

will allow you to set process levels, but I reckon I'd be careful with this type of tool or lockup city here we come

Hmmmmm, looks a bit like a loose cannon doesn't it? :D

I've just "Ghosted" disk so I'll give it a try. :D

Thanks Bart
