When using the recommended Planet Rock URL, I only get a static station ident: "Planet Rock (London, UK)" and no track titles, artists, etc.

I'm not sure if they issue such tags or not, but does anyone know if there is a better/alternative URL to get such Planet Rock track info displayed? TIA!

Track titles are not available for Windows Media streams, so no, there won't be any.

OK, thanks, shame.

You'd think that an all digital-friendly station (DAB anyone?) like Planet Rock, would do whatever it takes to provide the best experience on any digital delivery mechanism. Like Radio Paradise, for example. Oh well.

Planet Rock were using IceCast for a short while, before they got sold off by Global. That would have been compatible, but even then, there were no song titles.

It is possible to do metadata in WMA, but you need an encoder program that supports it, for example SAM Broadcaster.
