|I've been investigating why PSPRadio was only getting 30 stations from SHOUTcast since last month..
Turns out there is a problem over at shoutcast (winamp).. more info here:
Registered: Jun 2000
Shoutcast TV search is broken
And apparently, TV and Radio Listings aren't updating. More info here:
Note again, these are all serverside issues, and not Winamp client related.
It's also possible that support for pre 5.2 versions is broken due to the old servers frying, ie. it wasn't intentional. Note that the "upgrade needed" error message also appears on www.winamp.com/music
Ok, the flash listings on winamp.com/music is now fixed
Though I'm not sure if listings on pre 5.2 builds is/will be fixed yet...
The old pre-5.2x listings are limited to 30 streams only.
The old list server fried due to flaws in the old listing method.
It is deemed no longer viable to maintain/serve the old listings. Sorry.
Full content (including ~13,000 shoutcast radio streams) is available in 5.21.
So I guess we need to upgrade to the new server/method that winamp 5.21 uses.. I'll try to dig up some info on how to access this; but any info is appreciated.
