SHOUTcast searches no longer work

Don Morris 5 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 8 2 duplicates
I just upgraded  a couple of days ago and immediately after upgrading I was no longer able to search for any Shoutcast stations (Search, Genre and Top Hits all give a [No stations found] error). I can still play saved stations in favorites though.
Shoutcast worked right up until I upgraded, so the issue seems to be related to the upgrade.
Please let me know how to make the search work again with Shoutcast?

UPDATE 12/10/13
After a long weekend for us... SHOUTcast has been restored. We hope it continues to work properly and no more shutdown issues arise.

Please note that we are not sure what will be happening on December 20th as it was announced that Winamp and SHOUTcast would be shutdown. Rumors has it that Microsoft will purchase them. I'm really doutting that SHOUTcast will simply be shutdown. So, let's keep our fingers crossed... :(

Again thanks for your patience and we apologize this issue.

Me too. ShoutCast directory does not contain anything, even without search string

Currently we are having issues with the SHOUTcast radio directory service. We are trying to get them to resolve the issue ASAP. We are communicating with them but with little feedback we are getting from them.

Meanwhile please use UberStations directory. To switch to it simply go to XiiaLive home page and click DIRECTORIES. There you will be able to switch directories.

Thanks for your patience and we apologize for this big issues.
In addition, the search string is not cleared. UberStations then displays no stations, after I used a search string. No matter how I clear it, or enter a different string, the first string entered appears again. Only by clearing app data in Android Settings, I can clear it.
I tried trying to reproduce the issue you are talking about but I can't seem to be able to reproduce. Could you explain a bit more how to reproduce? Thanks!
select the UberStations directory.
click Search (Suche)
enter "zur"  (for zurich, city where I live).
click Local
click Search
press X (for clearing search field)
click Local
click Search: "zur" appears but should not.
press X(for clearing search field
enter "a"
click local
click Search: "zur" appears but should definitely not
click magnifying glass
stations have no relationship to search text "zur"
Thanks for the details! I see now what you are saying. I'll be improving this for the next release.
