start about 8:40 am EST

it was conform in streaming songs until the two request in cues were played
Velvet Acid Christ - East (Meaningless Life Mix) -> Yavin 4 - Yavin`s Orbit

then the first request (which i forgot) then my request Rotersand - I Cry

the requests are not in the "SONG HISTORY", and then the stream continues with the regular song list
X-Fusion - Eternal Sleep (which is playing just after Rotersand) and therefore already in the "SONG HISTORY" even though i hear it and im one song behind
"NOW PLAYING" GRAINS OF SOUND - Surrounder (club Mix)

now it is 8:56 am EST

maybe that'll explain some of the synchronizing issues, i wonder if only the subscribers requesting songs hear them, or if they are played stream-wide
and if they are played independent of stream type why weren't the requests in the song history?

it would certainly explain that "two songs behind lag" i experience from time to time listening to the subscriber stream even without requesting a song or having song requests at that particular time
i dunno, just a guess

edit:
9: 20am: i think depending on the song length sometimes you are sort of up to speed listening to the song while the announcement "NOW PLAYING" is matching (Controlled Fusion - Psychological Way)
but this only short lived
because now (9:23 am) i am already a song behind again (Diary Of Dreams - Hypo)crypticK(al )

Theory is when you know everything and nothing works.
Practice is when things work, and no one knows why.
Here we combine theory and practice.
Nothing works and no one knows why.

So, if I am understanding correctly - you are saying the requests played on the subscriber stream but did not appear to play on the regular stream?

i dont know if it did not appear on the regular stream

what i tried saying is that the request did _not_ appear in the song history
i do not know if the song history is connected to the regular stream

Yes, the history on the page is directly tied to the regular stream.
