Help with playlist. IS this possible
#1
I have a question regarding playlists and the creation of a playlist.

Was wondering if it is possible to create the following kind of playlist? If not, would it be possible to code it in?

Take 3 series by episode with playcount equaling 0, in ascending order. This will give all eps of the 3 series that have not been played.
Series 1's first unplayed episode is at S01E10
Series 2's first unplayed episode is at S02E01
Series 3 has no unplayed episodes.

Currently, if I create the above playlist, I get the following output (15 Eps per season):
Series 3 S01E01
Series 3 S01E02
Series 3 S01E03
Series 3 S01E04
Series 3 S01E05
Series 3 S01E06
Series 3 S01E07
Series 3 S01E08
Series 3 S01E09
Series 3 S01E10
Series 1 S01e10
Series 3 S01E11
Series 1 S01e11
Series 3 S01E12
Series 1 S01e12
Series 3 S01E13
Series 1 S01e13
Series 3 S01E14
Series 1 S01e14
Series 3 S01E15
Series 1 S01e15
Series 3 S02E01
Series 1 S02E01
Series 2 E02E01....etc.

What I would like to have happen is the following:
Series 1 S01E10
Series 2 S02e01
Series 3 S01e01
Series 1 S01E11
Series 2 S02E02
Series 3 S01E02
Series 1 S01E12
Series 2 S02E03
Series 3 S01E03....etc.

Is this possible at all with a Smart Playlist? Is it possible to get the grouping of unplayed episodes in this manner?

Thank you in advance!

I believe an "Episode" playlist with rules below will yield what you are looking for....
  • Type "Episode"
  • TV Title is "foo bar"
  • playlist count is 0.
  • Rules "All"
  • Ordered by episode.

EDIT - Sorry I just realised you want an Episode from S01, then S02, then S03, then back to S01. I've never thought about doing that, maybe Lunatixz answer will help Smile

Hello Lunatixz,

Thanks for trying to help. Unfortunately, it didn't work. I still get the results as in my first example. Any other thoughts?

Actually, I want the first unplayed episode to play from each show regardless of the season. Please look at the second example I posted.

Thank you,
Mark

Yes, are you making a playlist for each individual show... I probably should have elaborated.
Create a playlist as I described for each show... series1, series2 each get their own playlist.
Then you combine those playlists in a new playlist same type, with the rule "playlist" is, use playlist you created above. Then sort by episode...

Thanks again, but it didn't work. Made an "episode" playlist for each show, with Playcount = 0 and Observe "all" rules. Did this for three shows. Each when executed gives me the unplayed episodes in ascending order.
Combined them into a playlist using playlist as a rule for each of the three shows, type = episodes, order by = Episode. When using observe "all" rules, I get a blank playlist. When using "one or more" I get the same order as before.
Appreciate your help with this.

Thank you,
Mark
