    Jukebox random repeats the same track

    asset 4.3 premium QNAP 412 to Naim UniQute.
    Dynamic browsing > genre> Irish Traditional > jukebox track selection
    a picture tells a 1000 words



    there are 564 tracks if I select show tracks.

    any ideas about how not to have these duplicates?

    Thanks

    How many tracks do you have in your library?

    The issue is that these tracks appear 5 or so times in the randomization but they are being alphabetically sorted together by n-stream, there is an option 'upnp compatibility' if enabled it will not sort the random list.

    I don't mind the alphabetical sorting so much as I can shuffle play and this won't be a factor it is the issue that the same song shows up so many times in a random selection of 100 tracks I would've hoped that it would be a unique set.

    Choosing the upnp compatibility mode you suggest takes away my ability to play queue at use playlists which is not desirable.

    Can you make your random a little less random not to include duplicates?
