Hi everyone! I am new to Sam. I have Sam4 and I can't wait to learn as much as I can. My station not on air yet but right now we are loading everything and trial running some presentations, music loading having fun with it before we get on air.

1- I have in each music catagory about 200 songs. When I enforce the playlist rules, I have all set to not repeat items within 70mins from one another, and I have tried settings at Random, LLogic/random, Least recently played, I've tried them all with and without the enforced rules checked and it just keeps repeating the same stuff often.
*in my jinlges,sweeps,promo individual catagories, I have at least 15 but only have each catorgory in rotation twice an hr. It will keep picking the same 2 or 3 ones from the catagories everytime. (yes they are all in Sam and will play if i load them manuelly) I also use the catorgory based rotation and my hotclock has enough different things to overrun each hour so I know it's not running out of options.I might ad everything otherwise runs smooth but it just repeats the same 2 or 3 jingles out of 15, it's stuck on the same promos and won't rotate them evenlly.
Thanks for any help!!

How are you having SAM pull your promos & jingles? ARe you using a clockewheel? If so, can you please post your clockwheels here?

Are you using smRandom to pick your jingles? Your might try sticking with smLemmingLogic or rotate through them with smLRP so they all play before being picked again.

You also need to give SAM some time to show its stuff: wait a few hours before changing things again.

I'd suggest for starters, use smLRP as your method for pulling jingles/IDS/etc. As long as all of the files are valid, SAM will pull them all in order to make sure all of them will play. If you're using RANDOM, keep in mind that RANDOM means RANDOM... which means if you have 5 jingles, it could pull #2, then #5 then #2 and then #5 again while still not breaking the "random" rule.
