    Customized "Shuffle" feature?

    Can the squeezebox/transporter shuffle feature be user customized to play only certain genres (e.g. Rock music only) or other criteria (e.g. 80's music)?

    Yes.

    With the right plugins you can even do odd things like exclude 'Explicit' songs (ie, making it safe for work if you've tagged things right) and only songs more than a minute and less than 6 minutes (no long tracks, no 'intro' type tracks), etc.

    for virtually unlimited customization of shuffle/random, you should look into erland's plugins.

    they are a brilliant set of squeeze enhancers.
