No, I see the same, but to trigger the revenue generation, you need to follow the steps by scheduling a pair of 2 minute long mp3 files with the tag “Advert:” in both the artist and title fields.

Once you start playing the audio files as instructed, there system will automatically replace the audio played out by those MP3 files, with adverts.

But, until you do that, it won't trigger the revenue generation, so you won't earn anything.

Personally I prefer to handle it myself, and currently run two 30 second adverts at the top of the hour, but I'm also working on a sponsorship deal which is worth more in the long run.

aaaah ok i think we are misunderstanding each other. Yes I know how to trigger ads I am doing that now. But thats not what the revenue tab's function is designed to be. The revenue tab is supposed to give us up to the minute reports on how much revenue we have made on any given day. So we will know how much money is coming in. At first it said "coming soon" for about a year. Then they replaced it with what you see now but ultimately its supposed to give us monetary reports. Thats what people are talking about when they are asking when is that tab going to be working. Because currently we are triggering ads and have no clue if we are making money or not until we get a separate report.

Question Status update?

I started triggering ads in early July 2016 (just a little over a month ago). I'm sure I'm in the same boat as many people on here and really do not mean to be "annoying," but does anyone know where we are with getting the tab working? I still see the generic message that, from the looks of it, everyone has been seeing since last year (generic how-to guide on advert triggering). I *think* I'm doing everything right (station is listed, authhash - check, etc) but is there maybe something I haven't done? Any guidance here would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys!

No. You've done the work. And if you've heard them its working. It's just them being lazy and unfocused. This is how certain companies go out of business.

No problem. It's sad but they do pay. You just never know when.

You say they do pay? Do you know how much we get paid? Is there any contact details so I can contact Shoutcast?

Thanks
