I've found that sometimes Repeat isn't enough to reconnect when a stream drops out. One plug-in I use to reconnect the stream connection is Silence Detector, though if the stream is continuing but with silence, it reconnects even though it wasn't necessary. Another plugin that does about the same thing is called Restless.

Personally, I'd prefer something more on the lines of a stream detector, not a silence detector. Reconnect the stream if it drops but leave it alone if it's continuing (even if silent). Also let it sniff out the stream (occasional stations, not 24/7) until it's available then connect.
