    If you are referring to the "Shuffle" button, it is on the squeezebox device display for Example on a Touch the Shuffle Button is just to the left of the left most Volume Bar Speaker Icon. One can also "Shuffle" a playlist from LMS by clicking the same Shuffle Icon in the Main Right Pane of LMS (it is in the exact same location between the Loop Playlist Icon and left most Volume Bar Speaker Icon).

    One can change the Total Number of allowed Tracks in a Playlist in LMS under Settings> Advance Tab > Performance (which is under the drop down tab) > Maximum Playlist Length. The setting is variable but has two fixed meaning, if one enters "0" then there is no restriction on Playlist Length (this can really slow down a server if one is making 5000 track playlists) and the other fixed setting is 10 which is the Minimum Length Playlist Limit IE numbers 1 - 9 are illegal inputs. Any other numbers chosen will be the maximum allowed Tracks in a Playlist. Example: by putting 250 in the box, no playlist can exceed 250, so when the two hundred and fifty first song is added, song one is deleted by pushing it off the list. The exception to this rule is when one is using Tidal, then the list maximum is 500.

    Lastly I know this will not work for the OP because he is using Tidal, but when using one's actual Library to play ALL Favorites randomly I do not use a playlist or Shuffle. I copied my 5000 favorite songs to a separate specific Library. When I want to listen to ALL my favorites randomly, I point LMS at my Favorites Library, then I pick Random Mix from the Main Left Panel. Then the number of Favorites in a huge Playlist can't slow down the Server due to some huge Playlist because there is NO Playlist. Once the Touch gets 21 songs loaded it will display the last 10 songs played, the current song playing as number 11 plus the next 10 randomly picked songs to be played when scrolling through the list on the display. Once it plays song 11, and song 22 would be add, song one is pushed off and 11 will now be the current song playing since the list will now stay at 21 songs. NOTE: For those that have huge libraries and want to do this, I recommend building a NUC or Raspberry Pi server so you have two Servers (your huge library Sever and your small Favorites Server so you don't have to do rescans). Since I have a Separate Vortexbox Sever just for Music and a second Vortexbox Server for Movies plus my 5000 Favorites, I just use the IP Address of my Movies Server when opening LMS in a web browser so I no longer have to do any Library pointing or timely rescans of a huge Library anymore.

    Are you using your PC and going to Logitech Media Server and then "Advance Tab"? because I cannot find "Performance" anywhere or is this menu on the SBT?

    You have to “Favorite” or star each track, but mix them up! Don’t do all "A" albums and then "B" albums and so on. It seems to then play a sogs that start with A in a row and B in a row and so on. I star each track as I favorite an album and I am also picking from my already favored albums but I will do a B album and then a M Album and then a R album and so on.
    Then on the SBT, go to apps, Tidal, Favorites, Tracks make sure shuffle in on, on the SBT and press play and it will shuffle play. Sometime I start it at different spots to mix it up.

    I do not seem to find "Performance" under the advance tab. I click on LMS, then Advance tab and I see Install update and Web Remote Control and Advance settings and a log files box and a cleanup box. Where do I find "Performance?
