I haven't kept your original posts, so I don't know if you've already
given this information, but I'd like to see your ices config file. If
you're using a playlist script I'd like to see the ices_get_metadata
function (if you've written one). Also, run ices in debug mode and it
should show the title information it's sending to icecast for each

Needless to say, ices streams metadata perfectly for my radio
