Hello Word! :D
Here's the problem: I have a stock of programs (one-hour mixes) in bulk that I want to broadcast randomly on Friday and Saturday evenings at 7pm.
So I created an "Event Scheduler" and a PAL script triggered on these schedules, but the script keeps on broadcasting the same file (on about thirty, although the random mode is activated - well I think ;-) )

Any idea what's blocking it?
A big thank you in advance! :-)

Code:
PAL.LockExecution;
Queue.clear;
CAT['Station IDs (All)'].QueueBottom(smRandom,NoRules);
CAT['DeLuxe Promo'].QueueBottom(smRandom,NoRules);
CAT['DeLuxeMix'].QueueBottom(smRandom,NoRules);            (--> problem with that line ?)
CAT['Station IDs (All)'].QueueBottom(smRandom,NoRules);
ActivePlayer.FadeToNext;
PAL.UnlockExecution;

Norules selection means SAM can play whatever it wants, no forced separation of tracks. Random is just that, Random. The same file can be selected multiple times in a row with out many files to choose from. I would enforce rules and try smLRP. Another thing to consider, SAM does not update date_played until the tracks actually play so if you load a lot of tracks in the queue you 'could' get duplicates.
