I need a little help understanding stream path

First up, I have a happily running stream on the server that streams out from another computer on my network, Quantum Radio, through the sc_serv running on this machine. It's on streamid_1. I'll put in the conf file, makes it easier.

I can listen to that stream with this link.
code:
http://www.quantum-radio.net:8000/listen.pls?sid=1


Or indeed I can listen with this link.
code:
http://www.quantum-radio.net:8000/listen.pls
. Which seems to be the default name.

Now the second stream set up now on this server, is streaming a completely different source, from a beta streamer (SAM for Mac) on this computer. It's going to sid=2.
I can listen with this link this link.
code:
http://www.quantum-radio.net:8000/listen.pls?sid=2


If I go to
code:
http://www.quantum-radio.net:8000
I can see the two streams, and select either one fine.

Not to confuse the issue...
The "main" stream path, as listed on the AppleTV Radio stream and others, is via Spacial. plays here, based on the stream from the main server running SAM Broadcaster Pro.
code:
http://listen.spacial.com/api/listen/?sid=65701&method=sc&rid=1187760
This stream in no way connects to the Port:8000 server, but to this one.
code:
http://www.quantum-radio.net:8080/listen.pls


However - there are a couple of glitches in this apparently working setup.

the second stream, With a player name of Triple-K, happily playing away on id=2, doesn't appear on Shoutcast.com, and if I listen on Audiorealm.com, it actually picks up the Quantum Radio Stream, not the Triple-K stream, seemingly defaulting to streamid=1 ?

So, how do I ensure that the stream from quantum-radio is fixed on id=1, and the stream from triple-k is fixed on id=2 and more importantly, that connecting streaming services like shoutcast or audiorealm can see that difference?

If stream path is the answer, I can't see how to implement that?
thanks for any ideas


====================
code:

;include=sc_serv_debug.conf
;
logfile=/Users/robert/ShoutcastDNAS/logs/sc_serv.log
w3clog=/Users/robert/ShoutcastDNAS/logs/sc_w3c.log
banfile=/Users/robert/ShoutcastDNAS/control/sc_serv.ban
ripfile=/Users/robert/ShoutcastDNAS/control/sc_serv.rip
;
adminpassword=xxxxxxxxx
email=xxxxxxxxxxx
password=xxxxxxxx
requirestreamconfigs=1
streamid_1=1
backupfile=/Users/robert/ShoutcastDNAS/It_Don_t_Mean_A_Thing.mp3
;
;flashpolicyfile=/Users/robert/ShoutcastDNAS/crossdomain.xml
;
; This is the second stream, currently for testing.
streamid_2=2

backupfile=/Users/robert/ShoutcastDNAS/It_Don_t_Mean_A_Thing.mp3
;
streamauthhash_1=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
streamauthhash_2=xxxxx actually the same code as the first one xxxxxxx
