So I set up a filter that eliminates classical (and a couple of other genres) from showing, but that doesn't work as expected. IOW, tracks from the filtered genres still show in the auto playlist.
And you used that filter as the only source for the auto-playlist?
I just created 4 screen shots to in response to your query. Just before I posted them I reread your reply and notice the line quoted. Which then caused me to go back to the playlist settings where I noticed there was a drop-down for 'library" which (obviously) I hadn't noticed before. As soon as I selected the new (no classical) library, all became right with the world. Both for new, and my pre-existing, auto playlists.
Just for clarification, if I have a track that has the genre set to "rock; comedy" and comedy is filtered out from the library, MB will not select this track since "comedy" exists as part of the genre tag, correct?
Hopefully here's the final question regarding auto playlists. In the auto playlist settings, if I select "filter out duplicates when the same track is repeated on multiple albums" and I have ten tracks of The Rolling Stones Brown Sugar, MB will randomly select only one of these, correct? Assuming the Artist and Title tags match.
I've been using MB since April 2009 (version 0.3.3379.) I often read in the forums about features I haven't been using and get blown away when I finally get around to using one and it does just what's needed. After a little help from my friends.
Thanks for clearing all this up.
