Which software do you use ? the DNA (2.0 or 1.9.8 ?), or one that is a plug-in to the Winamp player [SHOUTcast DSP Plug-In, which I've used] ?

In the DSP Plug-in, there's a tab in the server configuration that asks whether to display artist and track information, Simply click on it to enable it. If you are playing your music through winamp [on the same machine as the server], you're all set, and the data should display on almost any software that also support .PLS files.

However, if you are streaming sound that is transmitted through the soundcard, then you'll have to manually put in the information for each piece of music.
