Playlist Problems

Wondering if anyone has any idea why a playlist is showing the incorrect title when downloaded as mp3 or m3u?

The pls file looks fine to me:
code:

[playlist]
File1=http...
Title1-This Particular Stream
Length1=-1
NumberOfEntries=1
Version=2



I checked out the m3u file that was created on the machine, and that has the correct title too. On Winamp specifically, everything is pointing towards that Particular playlist's Title, and the actual playing stream that you can hear is correct even. The only issue is the title. What other factor may be affecting the title?

Title1-This Particular Stream should be Title1=This Particular Stream (note the parts in red)

It actually didn't fix the problem. I have two streams running with winamp on XP. Stream A is showing Stream B's playlist title when opened in itunes or WMP.

The problem doesn't seem to be coming from the pls file, I figured it would be the winamp shoutcast configuration (which I've triple checked) and/or the m3u file, which i've checked as well..

Any other ideas?

sorry but where are these playlists even coming from? i.e. are they something you've manually created or from a specific site or somewhere else.... as at the moment i'm struggling to tell if this is something just against Winamp or if it's a more specific broadcasting issue (such as to do with SHOUTcast) or an unrelated service to what these forums are for.
