Station Info disappears

Hello,

My RadioBoss server sends the station title/song metadata info to TuneIn and other radio players. However, the information only appears for a few minutes and then disappears. My station plays 30 minute-long segments. Essentially each "song" is 30 minutes long. The title and song gets renewed every time a new segment begins, but after about 5 minutes into the segment the info goes away from the player and does not reappear until the next 30 minute segment begins. Is there any way to make sure the meta data stays on permanently?

You can configure RadioBOSS to send the title periodically - the option is located in Settings / Broadcasting / Metadata.

Thank you. Should the command be an HTTP GET or POST? It seems that both work when I tested them. I will try your suggestion.

It depends on what the script requires, what parameters it reads.
It's just title and artist, nothing more. I've tested with both GET and POST and it seems to make no difference. By the way, I set it up to send the title periodically as you suggested but still the info remains for about 5 minutes and then disappears.

It depends on how script treats, if it's written in PHP and uses $_REQUEST then both GET and POST will work.
About titles, I'm not sure why it's not updating on the server. If you set RadioBOSS to update title every N seconds, this is what will happen, and you should see a new title every N seconds.
