Smart playlist live updating Fuck dating no email required
If I'm not mistaken, that will cause the playlist to update.
So, unless there's a better way, it looks like you've led me to the solution. Credit here goes to the answer above, by fartheraway.
I just avoid it and use *Genre contains/does not contain Podcast and that seems to work just fine for me in most cases. If the only way it knows to change out a song is when one of the intermediaries does so, and that intermediary playlist isn't on the ipod, then it will not change your ipod's smart playlist 'till itunes boots up again.
Because of this issue, I avoid the Podcast and Playlist rules entirely now, and while I use the Album Rating rule I do so knowing that the playlist it creates won't live update on the i Pod and will only get updated when I sync back to i Tunes. Album rating may be calculated by itunes and not the ipod (since itunes has the whole album and maybe your ipod doesn't?
Here's how to create an awesome two hour playlist that will play your favorite tracks, tracks you've not listened to recently, and tracks you might have forgotten about.
) But I see no reason why podcast would mess anything up. My grand syncing scheme was to set up smart playlists like this on several REALLY large playlists: Playlist is X Limit to 100 songs The thing is, X has like 8 GB of music in it, as does Y, Z, A, and B.
Alright, this is the most maddening limitation to me. That's why I can't just throw them all on the device as is. I've thought of selecting the playlists, then doing ctrl-A, Get Info, and adding a comment to all the songs, but that's kind of a pain.
I don't think I'd even need to turn live updating on and the off again.
It looks like all I'd have to do is select "Edit Smart Playlist" and then tell "OK" to press.
All playlists (except the on-the-go) are set up, maintained, and edited via i Tunes.
