station only in 1 of 3 genre lists

My DNAS status page clearly shows the three genres I included in my SAM encoder. However, scrolling down to my current listener level, I only find my station in one of Shoutcast's genres. Searching for the station by station name, I only see the one genre. How can I restore my station back into the second and third genres where it is not showing in Shoutcast's directory?

only one genre has been allowed for a couple of years now so what you're seeing is completely expected.

So, my only choice is to delete the two least relevant from my encoder, and restart it?

it needs to be one of the values from the listing provided in http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=303241

with the version of things you're using, you can still put more genres in the genre string _however_ the YP will after processing of the string choose what it thinks is the most appropriate from what was provided. and in that scenario, everything which was set as the string will then appears as the 'tags' aspect for the listing, but you're running the risk of having the wrong genre for the listing.

only way to control the genre and the tags aspect is to use a v2.2 DNAS based setup.

that means using a v2.2 DNAS to provide the stream, not a v1.x DNAS.
