    Not necessarily.
    I think that the URI too long means the total number of characters in the post command is too long. It’s probably trying to send a list of all selected genres to the server as a text string.

    Alright, now...with still no genres selected in random mix, my random mix has returned to using all genres. I have no explanation.

    Anyone who could listen to a random playlist of that lot must be on looney pills.

    Random Songs is only gettingtracks from a tiny subset of library

    I think you mentioned DSTM at some point. There's an option to have DSTM
    play random tracks based on the currently playing tracks. This would
    indeed trigger Random Play with a sub-set of genres. I thought I did
    this without changing the active selection. But tbh. I'm not sure any
    more. It certainly did change it at some point... So this could
    potentially have caused the change in selection.

    If everything fails (and I'm not going to try to fix the "reset 3k genres in random play
    selection" issue :-)...) you could shut down LMS and delete prefs/plugin/randomplay.prefs
    from LMS' Prefs folder (see Settings/Information).
