Hey Is there a way you can still paly your station but don't have SHOUTcast DNAS on 24/7 because some of us can't leave our computer 24/7 what a good bit rate for everyone to listen to music

No DNAS, no station.
You might be able to find somebody/someplace that will host BOTH your DNAS and winamp/DSP combo. Keyword = might. Might cost you some $, though.

Unfortunatly to host a shoutcast station your computer must be on. Even if someone else runs a DNAS for you, you still have to provide the source from your Winamp. Unless they do, but then its not your station anymore =)

You can always move your station to www.live365.com (Otherwise known as dead365)
They've had alot of stability problems in the past but seem to be a bit more reliable now since they implimented this horrible dynamic IP address scheme. Never the less, if you want to broadcast without using your computer, you can purchase a basic broadcasting membership ($6.95 a month without relay) a bit more for the relay and just upload your music to their server and they will broadcast it for you. A standard membership gets you 100 megs and of course you can purchase more. I don't reccomend this if you don't have at least a dual ISDN broadband connection for upload purposes. If you want to modify your broadcast freqently through a modem, you might as well forget it. Good Luck. Also, they are going to start adding a flat-rate $5.00 FEE for this carp crap, but as a member we are not responsible to pay these fees individually, so this is a way for my station to stay on the air as a non-profit station. I pulled my station's music off Shoutcast a few days after the carp ruling. Too much $$$ for a station that generate no income and was supposed to be a hobby.
