Squeezebox2 - Song File Format
*******************************

Whichever of the formats i choose, I can't get the Title of some
Internet radiostation displayed.
e.g. KJAZ, San Francisco - after choosing the station it's displayed
just as desired. A few seconds later only the Track # is shown on
the display and that is not very informative.
I have tried all formats, in particular "Title", "Artist-Title", "Title-Artist".

In Winamp the track AND the name is shown both in the Main Window
and in Playlist, in this case - "track xxx (Spirit of KJAZ San Francisco)".

Someone have a solution ?

I can still return the box which I bought mainly to listen to Internet Radio,
but if I can't get information about which station I am tuned too
then there is something basic missing. Despite all the other goodies.

Regards
Wolf

I tried the KJAZ playlist file from Shoutcast radio (download http://www.shoutcast.com/sbin/shoutcast-playlist.pls?rn=771516&file=filename.pls to your playlists folder) and was able to get the track number (not an actual name, but the number seemed to match the one displayed on Winamp). I was also able to find KJAZ through the Shoutcast plugin (under the Jazz section) and got the same results.

Yah, that's the same result I'am getting in the Squeezebox.
But in Winamp both the track nr. and the Station name is
displayed.
And since it works in Winamp why not in the Squeezebox ?

Is there no one with a solution ?

Ah...Winamp is concatenating the station name to the track information
sent by the station. We currently only show the latter. If you hit right
from the Now Playing screen, you should see the name of the station.

Alternatively, you can file an enhancement request at
http://bugs.slimdevices.com requesting that the station name be shown
along with current track information.

I believe this is available as a display option using the MusicInfo Screensaver
from Michael Herger (as per http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=356)
