I think you'll have to use mplayer.

Might not be what you want, but XMMS will store streaming mp3 to HDD as mp3.

I use Streamtuner and Streamripper. Streamtuner is a great program, that has many different pre-set stations (just like Amarok) plus the ability to look-up and set your own favorites. It uses xmms to play and Streamripper works in the background to enable you to record the broadcast to an mp3 on your drive via a handy button built in to the streamtuner panel. Try it I think you will like it!

Thanks a lot i have tried both mplayer way and streamtuner/streamripper way. What i have found is that both work really well.
With mplayer i couldnt hear while my radio programme was storing my stream to hd.
With streamtuner i have had to do some initial configuration to work properly.
Now i have the mp3 files saved to my pc and i want to edit them (cut-copy-paste things from the file i have recorded) Any suggestions plz?

sweep or audacity spring immediately to mind:
http://www.metadecks.org/software/sweep/ and http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Haven't used either extensively, but I prefer the look of sweep!

Audacity works just fine, it will import the mp3 so that your original can remain untouched ( if you wish) you can also overwrite your file when done.!

Not compatible with XM?

I've tried to record XM using these methods without success. Amarok tells me there is no audio channel. I might be doing something wrong, but can't be sure. I've got Streamtuner installed but that doesn't work either. Here's the error message from Amarok:

http://player.xmradio.com/hotstream/...partner=XMROUS

I changed only one thing in the Streamtuner preferences, which was 'Listen to a stream' entry. xmms was the default, I changed it to Amarok.

Edit: I've not tried Audacity... yet.
