listener numbers in pls file?

Why and how are listener numbers being injected into the pls files? Mine does not contain them but some stations do.

example: I use the latest DNAS and my pls file looks like this..

[playlist]
NumberOfEntries=4
File1=http://xxx.xx.xx.xx:XXXX/stream
Title1=TITLE OF STATION
Length1=-1

File1=http://xxx.xx.xx.xx:XXXX/stream
Title1=TITLE OF STATION
Length1=-1

File1=http://xxx.xx.xx.xx:XXXX/stream
Title1=TITLE OF STATION
Length1=-1

File1=http://xxx.xx.xx.xx:XXXX/stream
Title1=TITLE OF STATION
Length1=-1
Version=2



example of a station with listener numbers inside the PLS file:

[playlist]
numberofentries=2
File1=http://xx.xx.xx.xxx:XXXX
Title1=(#1 - 199/1200) : STATION NAME :
Length1=-1
File2=http://xx.xx.xx.xxx:XXXX
Title2=(#2 - 205/1200) : STATION NAME :
Length2=-1
Version=2


Is their pls files being generated dynamically or something? What/Why are those listener numbers doing there? Just trying to have a complete understanding on the mechanics of shoutcast as a whole.

thanks.

P.S I like the new shoutcast.com layout.

where are you getting the playlists from? the dnas does not put the listener numbers in the pls - the shoutcast dir does generate its own pls files, so that's maybe what you're seeing.
