Intro file

Several month back I had tried using a fallback file on the V1 DNAS server (
SHOUTcast Server Version 1.9.8/Linux) and never could get the file to respond when dropping the source.
After moving to the V2 I had also tried the same file and never could get it to work (Fallback)

After deciding to go back to the V1 and relaying to the V2 I decided to add an Intro file to the V2 and after that the Fallback file started working..

It was a 5 sec dead air and I had tested it using Winamp and watched the time connected timer click away.

Took the Intro file out and tried the dropping the source connection again and it would drop the stream (Most of the time)

I did not experiment with it more as I was trying to get my station back up and stable.

All I know is that in the past 2-3 days I have hardly dropped any listener connection, I keep an iTunes player running on one of my computers and it's been a non-stop connection on my station since.
