hmmm...just before i hit the "SUBMIT" button I read the "Smart Playlists stop updating dynamically on iPod" statement from Apple...
sigh...well, if you have any comments on my post i'd still appreciate them! :-) ~robb
Just bought a new 20GB Photo and I want to take it along on a two-week car trip with me. As I'm going to be away from my computer and can't sync, I'm worried that my smart playlists won't refresh.
I have my iPod to "Auto Update" all checked songs in my library all my smart playlists are:
- Limit to X - random
- Match only checked
- Live updating
-Comment contains X
-Last Played is not in the last X days
It seems that these playlists aren't dropping the "old" songs and picking up "new" songs. I thought that once you played a song, it would then NOT match the criteria for the smart playlist and be replaced by a new song.
Also, it seems that my iPod doesn't register all the songs i listen to in the "last played" column. Do you need to listen to the ENTIRE song before it counts as "played"?
What about star ratings? Will a smart playlist for 5-star songs pick up those songs that i rate on my iPod without first having to synch/update on a computer?
