View Full Version : Power on Resume/Reset Shuffle question

I noticed that 6.2 has the power on resume/reset functions which are great. What I'd like to do is be listening to a shuffled playlist, hit power off, and the next time I start the SB2, have the playlist restart automatically, but in this case have the list reshuffled.

Is this possible either through the default 6.2 settings or with a plug-in?

The following thread might give some idea about what's possible:

Would the Autoplay entry reshuffle the current playlist before it starts? That's what I'm looking to do.

Isn't there an option on the server which will let you have it shuffled
again?

Well, I don't see it anywhere. The power on resume feature starts exactly where it left off, and the power on reset just starts the playlist again, but leaving the same shuffled order as before.

No big deal, but I'd like to use this with the 500+ Xmas tunes we have. It would be nice if the random mix would be different everytime, AND automatically start upon power up.
