    Then, like snarlydwarf said, what you really need are Erland's plugins.

    Yes, it can make a random list based on Genre, so if you tag things specially it will do it.

    But in general, Erland's plugins are the bees knees: here at work I'm listening to a playlist that specifically excludes tags with 'Explicit' or 'Christmas' or a couple other genres I dont want here...

    I also have a 'Favorites' list which is made up of things with ratings at 4 or more stars, so things I have flagged will play in that.

    I hate making playlists. Too much thinking. MUCH easier to let the computer do the work and create them on the fly.

    Did a search and this came up. Sorry if this has been addressed somewhere else.

    I think this is the only featur I have been missing over the years. A shuffle button next to the Play button.

    In this case it's a Spotty playlist saved as a favorit.

    Another example, a shuffle button to play all songs by artist in a random order.

    The problem for me is that I keep forgetting to turn Random mix of then playing an album.
    SB Touch to Yamaha A-S501, Boston Acoustics A26.
    SB 3 to Audio Pro T3.
    AirPlay Bridge to Audio Pro C5.
    SB BOOM
    SB Radio
