This means the server did not accept title update for some reason. You can inspect server logs to find the cause.

The problem is not with RadioBOSS, the disconnect is performed by the server, RadioBOSS only states the fact that disconnect had occurred. It did not cause it nor it doesn't know the reason. You need to inspect server logs to see why it's disconnecting.

Never talk about RadioBoss, I was talking about RadioCaster that has problems with txt files to generate the metadata that always leaves the same error very often: W40 warning! title update failed

Already change servers 3 times and keep doing the same.

Technically it's the same as both programs share the same streaming engine.

There's no problem with text files in RadioCaster. It simply reads the file contents and uses them as streaming title. To make sure the title is read correctly, please click the Status button and see that "Current track title" contains the correct title. This is what RadioCaster sends to the server as track title.

This means that RadioCaster had sent the title to the server, but the server did not accept this title for some reason. Possible reasons are using some special characters (e.g. to make your station more prominent) or too long title or something else. The exact reason can be determined if you inspoect server logs.

Another possibility, you can try switching the title encoding in RadioCaster - open the encoder properties, Metadata tab, select either ANSI or UTF-8 and see what works the best with your server.

Already probe different servers, probe using shoutcast and icecast, probe different encoding and still appear  W40 warning! title update failed

The txt file that the radiocaster reads is simple that only has text.

Before this did not happen. It started with the new version

Please send us the nowplaying.txt file to check. To get extended information about the cause, you should inspect server logs, there will be information on why title is rejected.
