HD Radio: Importer Service Tokens Expiry
Tokens installed in a 4.4.7 importer for Artist Experience data services before 2015 need to be replaced due to the original tokens have expired. The tokens are from first early implementers and are old. Attached is a document with information to replace the service tokens with the expired tokens.
To replace the service tokens, simply open Webadmin on the v4.4.7 or v4.3.1 importer. Once open, navigate to configurations, then open services in the submenu. This will display all the AE data services and their associated tokens. Select a service to edit, then click on the edit button towards the right-hand side of the screen. This will allow you to now edit the service token. Copy and paste from the spreadsheet the new service token. Once done, click save. The importer will display a message stating the service was edited successfully. Once this is done for all the AE data services. Exit out of Webadmin. Go to the importer control panel and stop and restart the importer. The tokens will have then been updated.
A text file is included to make it convenient to copy and paste the tokens.
Token replacement in 4.4.7 Gen 2 importer

Move the cursor to the first data service (usually named aad0, AlbumArt1, or AAHD1), click on the edit button next to that first service.
It should be noted here. There are two different services here: One for artist experience of the HD channel and the Station Logo for the HD channel. From the spreadsheet, make sure you install the correct token for the correct service. Station logo services will typically be named either ad0, StationLogo1, or SLHD1. Make sure from the Excel file or text file that the correct token is installed for the correct service. i.e. Album art1 will be for aad0, AlbumArt1, or AAHD1. Station-Logo1 will be for ad0, StationLogo1 or SLHD1). Follow this convention for the HD2, 3 and 4 channels if applicable.
