How do I get Winamp to auto start after long data drop?

I am using Winamp to monitor a Shoutcast stream I am sending from a radio station transmitter site. It is running through a 900mhz link that has huge data packet loss strings about once an hour. I have configured Winamp to make it through them most of the time by increasing the buffers in the MPEG decoder plug-in. it takes a long time to fill the buffer when I first start up Winamp, but it makes it through the smaller packet loss strings just fine. BUT!! Every now and then there will be a huge packet drop up to 20 seconds. At this point Winamp will stop playing. When the link stream comes back up, Winamp won’t always restart itself. I have enabled the repeat button on the player but sometimes it won’t re-start after the data stream comes back up. Is there anything I can do to make it sit there and keep retrying to play the Shoutcast stream over and over until it sees the data stream come back? Thanks - Gary
