Okay, the mount  for my automation still works. But, not for the fallback mount I have setup I don't know what I'm doing wrong. If you want to check it out, go to, http://kjscradio.com:8000/stream.mp3.m3u

I believe I have them setup correctly. but what I would want to do is when I go to http://kjscradio.com:8000/stream.mp3.m3u, I would like it to fallback to the mount point that I have setup for my automation stream. Then, when a source drops the connection from the /stream.mp3.m3u mount I would like it to go to my automation mount for it. My .xml file config is below.
