I have a very simple playout policy. All Tracks. Do not play the same track within 1 hour (I assume this is referencing the title of the song). Also Do not play the same artist within 1 hour.
Yet when I automate the playback with this policy, I still get the same track playing within the hour. Am I just not understanding this or how to set it up?
For example, I have multiple songs that are identical, but the artist is different. For instance, Jingle Bells is in the list 4 times, but by 4 different artists.
Frank Sinatra - Jingle Bells
Gene Autry - Jingle Bells
Michael Buble - Jingle Bells
Orchestra - Jingle Bells
Why when it looks at the title of the song would it playback the same title within the hour? It makes no sense. I am using the latest version 2.06 (build 2796).
For clarity, a track refers to an entry in the track list. "Do not play the same track for 1 hour" refers to the same track entry (your assumption is incorrect). Currently there is no direct way to not play the same title for 1 hour. My suggestion would be to set up a related artist between Frank Sinatra and Gene Autry etc so they are essentially treated as the same artist and will respect the "do not play the same artist" rule.
