View Full Version : "Random Mix" messes up current shuffle mode

I have "shuffle by song" mode enabled. If I play a Random Mix and then play one of my playlists it shows that "shuffle by song" mode is still enabled but that is not the case. I can see this by looking at the the Now Playing list which shows the songs in the playlist in "unshuffled" order. I used to be able to "fix" this by toggling the shuffle off and then back on which would then show the Now Playing list in a shuffled order as expected. But now, recently, if I try to toggle the shuffle mode it doesn't actually toggle the shuffle until I restart LMS (when I try to change the shuffle mode in the menu it randomly jumps two places to "Off" and is not setting the shuffle mode). This happens on both my Touch and Radio and with LMS 7.7.2.

I have reported this as a bug but it hasn't even been "confirmed" yet: http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17932

I must say that I think it is pretty ridiculous that a bug in the basic functionality of the player won't be fixed unless it gets enough "votes". Surely someone else uses Random Mix followed by a shuffle mode for their playlists??

It turns out this only seems to happen when the "Continuous" mode for Random Mix is disabled ('0' in randommix.prefs). I'm sure it is a waste of time but I will update the bug report.
