I've used VLC to receive signals from other servers, Ices2 as source
cliente and Icecast2 as server, all in one computer, functioning as a
signal repeater.

There were no problems with reconnections.

Also I have used bash programs to detect when the remote signal falls
definitively and then replace this by some other until the main signal
