Is there an easy way to have iTunes generate a new set of tunes under Party Shuffle short of moving through the songs by playing or skipping through them manually? I like how easy it is to rate songs on the iPod and that Party Shuffle will play my favorites more frequently than other songs.

My problem is that by listening to Party Shuffle through the SB2 the list itself remains static and I don't see any way to easily grab a new set of tunes for it. I could just use the slimserver shuffle but as far as I can tell slimserver doesn't know or care a whit about my song ratings under iTunes.

Thanks,
Scott

If you're in iTunes you can just press the refresh button for a new
playlist.
This would be picked up by SlimServer on the next rescan.

However - I wrote a plugin that continuously reads Squeezebox playlist
tracks from the iTunes Party Shuffle playlist!
(It only works on Windows at the moment)
I also wrote a plugin for saving iTunes ratings from your Squeezebox.
(This one works on Windows & OSX)
