TuneTracker™ QuickTip

Preserving On-Air Integrity

Because of the amazing operating system TuneTracker runs under, you can do more than one thing at a time without impacting what's on the air. If the tasks are small, you can even do three or four! Naturally, there are limits, however, and that's what we want to cover here.

TuneTracker itself is a fairly low-intensity task. If you're streaming to the web, that adds significantly to TuneTracker's use of system resources. Between the two, consider your broadcast to be at least a medium-intensity task.

As you add other tasks to the computer's workload, keep in mind the intensity of the tasks, and try to limit them to no more than one of the following heavy-duty jobs.


  1. The left and right arrow buttons let you flip through pages and pages of MyShow buttons, all configured exactly as you want them.
  2. Generating program logs in TuneStacker (high intensity)
  3. The left and right arrow buttons let you flip through pages and pages of MyShow buttons, all configured exactly as you want them.
  4. An open TT Anywhere connection (high intensity)
  5. The left and right arrow buttons let you flip through pages and pages of MyShow buttons, all configured exactly as you want them.
  6. Burning a CD-ROM (yes, you CAN do it while broadcasting!) (high intensity)
  7. The left and right arrow buttons let you flip through pages and pages of MyShow buttons, all configured exactly as you want them.
  8. Backing up your hard drive to another hard drive (high intensity)
  9. The left and right arrow buttons let you flip through pages and pages of MyShow buttons, all configured exactly as you want them.
  10. Transferring-in a large number of files over your local area network (fairly high intensity)

The truth is you can often get away more than one heavy-duty job (besides TuneTracker) at the same time, but depending on your system, it might stretch things to the point where you begin to hear some breaking-up on the air. If you notice any of that, odds are you're pushing it a bit too much. Normally if you only do one of the major tasks in the list above at a time while TuneTracker is running and streaming to the web, you shold be just fine.
