Hmmm...

Okay I've followed the suggestion and now the Playlist is indeed sorted
alphabetically. However, I still have the "itunesplaylist" and the "%20".
For what its worth I also shutdown the server and restarted it, but without
the desired effect.

Cheers

Dave

Try server settings, additional, performance. Click on Wipe Cache and see
if
that clears things up. The playlists are sorted for me, and have the %20's
properly escaped. what you have, sounds like old cached data.

Hi Dave,
Server settings, additional, iTunes. there is a setting in there for iTunes
Playlist Format Prefix and suffix. By default, the suffix is blank, but the
prefix should be defaulted to "itunes:". What your itunes playlist should look
like (and does fr me right now) is this "itunes: my playlist". Is the iTunes
Playlist Format setting blank in your settings?
