I have 2 questions. Why is that when a song that is not in the current list is played, it is given a rotation weight but I don't necessarily want it to be rotated. In other words, I want to be able to play a song without SAM adding it to my playlist and/or starting to rotate it regularly.

The 2nd question is when I use the event scheduler to play shows, they are rotated automatically and we have to do a search and remove it from the playlist or from rotation. This is how I schedule shows.
Queue.Addfile('E:\Gospel Insi................mp3, ipTop);
ActivePlayer.FadeToNext;

When I do this SAM starts to rotate the show. Why? Thanks in advance for your help.

By default, anything you play gets added to SAM's database. If you are pulling from Music (All) the song will be put into rotation. Avoid running AutoDJ and use a clockwheel that draws only from categories containing items you want played.

You could add them to the "play once and remove" category upon import. Then re-add them when you want them played using the ES.

When you say "Avoid using Auto DJ" are your saying set to Queue instead? I am having the same problem as top thread....I changed my clockwheel to pull from a new category (where I loaded my clean playlist)....does this mean my podcast news I play every hour will not now go into rotation? I have now also set to Queue instead of auto dj.

Thanks you soooooooooooooooooo much for the advice and help....

One gives a good deal of control over to SAM when using AutoDJ. I'd avoid it like the plague.
