When creating autoplaylists, you can select by track and album, but not by artist.
If you had artist in there, it would let you do things like a random artist playlist, or first 3 unheard artists, or top 1 metal artist, etc.

Hi, the Select By dropdown in create autoplaylist is grayed out after copying the 3.2 files over and restarting.  i've tried adding various rules and clicking the different options, but it's grayed out and stuck on "track".  Just thought i'd let you know in case it impacts the next rollout.

I'm trying to make an auto-playlist that randomly selects an artist and shuffles just a limited number of tracks from that artist's discography, but I can't figure it out, if it's even possible. I have "Select by" set to "Artist" and "Selected by" and "Shuffle" both set to "Random." Tracks are automatically refreshing. The two things I'm running into are the playlist lists tracks by in album-track number order and none of the "Limit to" settings stop the artist's entire discography from being listed.

Thanks for that.
The only thing is that I can't access Auto-DJ from BubbleUPnP remotely, but I can play from my auto-playlists, which is why the main reason I was trying to do it that way.
