ShoutCast radio app on my iPad does not play my stream anymore

ShoutCast radio app on my iPad does not play my stream anymore
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just set up an Internet Talkradio station based on a ShoutCast v2 server,
which I host on my personal PC.
It has run for about 2 weeks in a test phase.

The name of the station "SciTechTalk" was properly listed in the ShoutCast radiodirectory
http://www.shoutcast.com/Internet-Radio/SciTechTalk
and still is.

I also could listen to my station streaming in a couple of apps on my iPad:

e.g. in the SHOUTcast Radio for iPhone app from*
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/shout...299647180?mt=8
(http://mobile.aol.com/appdetails/iPhone/SHOUTcast/)
,*
and also in the Alarm Clock Radio app (free version) from*
http://www.raizlabs.com/Portfolio/alarm-clock-radio/ .

I could SciTechTalk listed in the station category I put it in (in both apps).
Also I could search for SciTechTalk in both apps finding my station and playing it.
But since a day or 2 I can not get it playing anymore in BOTH these apps.
So the problem is not connected to a specific app,
it is something more fundamental.
Earlier both apps were able to find and play my stream.

I think these apps cache an old entry (I have restarted SciTechTalk a couple if times).
For example in the ShoutCast Radio app I now still can find my station,
but the now playing information is old!
When I try starting the stream I get the error message:
"stream URL not found".

This problem came up only a day or 2 ago!

The stream can still be succesfully played from the shoutcast radio directory
http://www.shoutcast.com/Internet-Radio/SciTechTalk,
or via
http://scitechtalk.zapto.org/listen.pls

i hope somebody can help with this very annoying problem !
