Smart playlist live updating Fewd voyeur
Make sure to tick the Live updating box in each case so the playlist changes with your listening history.
This playlist requires some preparation on your part — namely that your favourite songs are stamped with a four or five-star rating.
Deleted ALL playlists (again) from both the phone and the Mac, emptied trash, rebooted both.
Deleted the songs on the i Phone I don't want, ensured they were unchecked in i Tunes.3.
I have tried letting the songs play, hoping they'll fall off the playlist. I'm willing to do drastic measures because these are tracks I really don't like - at all. Yes, the list is set to live updating and to match all rules. I tried different syncing options: removing the offending playlists from the sync, removing *all* music from syncing, lots of swearing.
So, naturally, they seem to pop up a couple of times a day while listening. I think I'm going to try removing all the music from the phone, deleting all the playlists in i Tunes, rebooting everything, recreate the playlists, and then sync everything to the phone. Finally ended up doing a local backup, restore as new phone, restore backup and re sync.
A problem started with a smart playlist and I'm not sure how/what to approach fixing it beyond what I've tried. Setup: Mac Mini running Snow Leopard and i Tunes 10.
No add-ons, and the Mini is a pretty barebones install as an HTPC - only other program installed is Firefox. Not jailbroken and no music/audio related apps (like equalizers).
It appears to be limited to: one album, a handful of other random songs, and one track from an audiobook that I can't seem to get rid of, even with deleting it from i Tunes."Limited to" box is unchecked, "live updating" is checked.4. Now, not a single one of the unticked songs shows up in the playlist on the Mac.Yet, they're being included in the playlist on the phone and the music is being copied back over.One is out and four is something I just don't want to have to do.So, I'll try three and, if that doesn't work, just move the tracks over to a flash drive and copy it back when I want it. Every once in a while (like maybe once a month), I'd get a song that would just go quiet on the i Phone: still playing, volume at full, but no sound. Forgot this step (sorry): Unchecked all the songs in i Tunes I did not want.
That, in the last week, has proliferated to happening several times a day. They have not shown up in any of my playlists so far.11. Finished syncing and things have been great since then.
