I was just about to post something similar about a missing YSF ID. It looks like the list at http://www.pistar.uk/downloads/YSF_Hosts.txt hasn't been updated in the last few days? I put YSF #63340 online a few days ago and have been waiting for it to show up in the list.

Are the reflectors registered and showing on the hosting resources. If they arnt registered or showing in their native sources they won't get pulled into pistar.
Does the YSF reflector show on the YSF registry pages.
Does the FCS room show on the FCS reflector pages.

Pistar uses the online lists provided by the hosting service.

Andrew - do you know what the refresh interval is? Mine has been on register.ysfreflector.de (#63340 US XLX331) for ~4-5 days now but hasn't made it into Pistar yet.

Afaia the pistar webserver polls the registry each day, then presents it to ur install, updating the host files with the nightly maintenance process that run in the early hrs. each morning.

If you don't keep ur install running 24/7 for the updates to action, you'll need to run a manual update.

running pistar-update on the command line via SSH or
Clicking the update link on the dashboards admin page.

I see a new reflector was added in last 24 hours or so. But it wasn't one requested by the OP!

'We' dont manually add reflectors. The list populates at source from the YSF registry. If a new one has been registered with them pistar updates will add it to the host list with it's nightly maintenance or (if ur install doesnt run 24/7) when you next run a manual update

YSF registry? For FCS reflectors? Just curious...

Yeah good point, i missed were talking FCS as of the top of the thread.

FCS are handled similarly, it still comes from source. only this time the source is with the Xreflector/ Connect Plus group that host FCS.
