I have a squeeze box 3 connecting to slim server 6.5. I've written a seperate application that conforms to the shoutcast protocol and the squeeze box can connect to it and play the music stream no problem. However, when the screen saver kicks in and "Now Playing:" scrolls on to the screen, nothing is displayed, should it be taking the Now Playing from the icy-metaint data embedded in the shoutcast stream (which it is - verified by a seperate client) or does it not display this data?

I know the squeeze box understands the icy-metint data as it requests it when it logs on to the stream and the play back has no glitches when the embedded data is sent.
