View Full Version : 'Random Play' playing short playlist repetitively

I have the Squeezebox on random play/songs - 4 players synchronized, all wired - and it is playing the same 21 tracks, from a possible selection of 16297, over and over again in the same order. Please see the list of tracks played that I pulled from Last.FM.

I believe this is an old bug that has resurfaced (speaking of which, I've also seen the 'displaying track-1 information when playing track' bug in this release that I remember from some time ago).

All genres are included in Random Mix, 'Add new items when old ones finish' is selected and the server interface is set to show 10 old and 10 new.

Re-selecting Random Mix clears the issue and it is fine for a while (at least days) but then the issue comes back.

I'd like to use Dynamic Playlists/Random Songs to get round the issue but, as per another post of mine, that causes Squeezebox Server to crash every time I forget and press the <pause> button on the remote.
